The Baby Boomer Sandwich I remember some years ago someone saying that baby boomers would be a sandwich generation. By the time they were in their middle years they might have frail parents while still be looking after their own children or helping with grandchildren. At the time I dismissed the comment, thinking that the [...]

If you’re a geek like me, our Man of the Moment, Eddie McClintock needs no introduction. He’s the man who plays Agent Pete Latimer on the SyFy original series Warehouse 13. He’s also a husband, father, dog-owner, and – as most of the best people are – still in touch with his inner ten-year-old. Recently, [...]
Camille had been terrified of horses ever since Pinto, her rent-a-horse, went on a wild tear, galloping through the dense pine woods of northern Michigan on a family outing led by Blanche, a woman who dubbed herself the “Horse Whisperer.”
Last summer I ventured to Atlanta, Georgia for a weekend girlfriends’ getaway hosted from a childhood friend. I discovered that Atlanta has much to offer visitors. I visited several attractions, but the unbearably hot 100° plus weather prohibited me from visiting several others. Here is a list of some of the places I visited and [...]
I used to enjoy drama in my life. No, let me be honest: I used to actually seek and attract drama, like confrontation in work situations. Now? I consider stepping away from drama in my life as self care. Taking care of the home your soul lives in is just as important as taking care [...]
Welcome to All Things Girl, Brian. Tell us a little about yourself. Where did you grow up, and where do you now call home? I grew up in Shaker Heights, right outside of Cleveland. I went to a public school with a great music program. After moving to Boston to study at Berklee College of [...]
So, it’s Mother’s Day, at least in much of North America, and a few other places. Mexico, where my mother lives, celebrated it on Friday, as their Mother’s Day is always on May 10th, instead of being the second Sunday in May, or seventy-third day after the first dark Tuesday, or whatever. But, anyway, it’s [...]
Hooray, the summer movie season has begun! “But Mighty Kymm,” I hear you cry, “It is not summer, it is the beginning of May, and it just totally snowed in Wisconsin!” This may be true, but it’s 93° here in LA, and also we are sick of the post-Oscars doldrums, and also we are ready [...]
I was in the midst of my first serious post-college relationship when my mother wondered aloud if I was a lesbian. “But I’m dating a man,” I stammered, even though she had met him. “We went out last night.” My mother and I were snuggled on a floral loveseat in my parents’ living room, our [...]
There’s a confession I have to make, and it may startle some and confuse others. I’ve taken up knitting. That’s right, I’m a knitter. If you told me a year ago that I would be even remotely interested in knitting, I wouldn’t have believed it. I practically break out into hives when I enter [...]
After living in London and Oxford for a little over 6 years, moving to Charlotte, NC was a bit of a culture shock for me. Not an entirely unwelcome one, but a shock nonetheless. Having lived here in Charlotte for a little over 2 years now, I’ve started to explore more of the city. Although [...]
As early as I could walk my mother carted me around to the many different antique stores she loved. We’d drive for miles in her small, red, Chevy Monza with the tan leather bucket seats. Invariably getting lost along the way turning our trip into a “Joy Ride”. Down country lanes, and curving roads, she [...]
Motherhood. The word that best describes motherhood for me is bountiful. bountiful |ˈbountəfəl|- adjective, large in quantity; abundant Everything about mothering is abundant. Think about it: the abundance of microscopic cells creating a tiny human. The abundance of energy it takes to press through that last month of pregnancy or the stretch of patience leading [...]
Coffee has been part of my life nearly as far back as I can remember, my earliest experience of it being the “coffee-milk” my mother used to make for me by spooning teaspoons of her thick, black, brew into my class of moo-juice from time to time. It is precisely because of this that I [...]
I was really looking forward to this movie, though there were a couple of red flags, like the fact that it’s an English-language remake of a French comedy, which often does not translate well, and it’s a comedy with Robert DeNiro in it, which often seems to be watching him pick up a paycheck for [...]
I have lots of post-its scattered around my house with encouraging phrases and verses that remind me to “practice peace” and “ramp up my love walk”. Thank goodness my husband loves me because when I am really going through a challenge, the post-its run rampant throughout our home. On the kitchen cabinets. In the bathroom. [...]
Each and every time I dive into an intimate conversation with a creative soul, I am entranced and this chat with Debbie Reber makes me swoon a little. I hope you adore her as much as I do Tell us about Debbie – as if every 7years (or so) of your life, Book that represented [...]
My mother has always had a green thumb, and growing up as a city girl, I felt some anxiety about not being able to have this connection and wisdom with the earth that she had. My mom grew up in a rural village in Afghanistan, so this was part of her lifestyle, growing and harvesting [...]
There are cities around the world that don’t require the addition of the state or country name to define them. Paris is one; New York and London are others. Tokyo, Singapore, and Rome are part of that illustrious list as well – and each of them has its own cachet of sophistication. One other iconic [...]
Today, in celebration of the 10th annual Poem in Your Pocket Day, I carry a poem by Margaret Atwood. The Moment The moment when, after many years of hard work and a long voyage you stand in the centre of your room, house, half-acre, square mile, island, country, knowing at last how you got there, [...]
