Suzie's milestone birthday billboard her sister Lisa made Source: Suzie Pileggi Pawelski I (Suzie) just celebrated a milestone birthday a few weeks ago and am still savoring the great time I had. I'm grateful for my friends and family who helped me celebrate the birthday that I almost let slip by. I clearly envisioned how I'd celebrate my big birthday weekend: Friday night drinks with girlfriends at sunset on our balcony on the eve of my birthday followed by a big Italian feast with family on Saturday, the actual day of my birthday. It was all set. Friends and family were contacted. Plenty of prosecco was purchased. Catering booked. And then life happened, as it always does, which we could not have planned. First, our 8-year-old son's baseball team made it into the championship series, which of course, in itself is terrific news. The thing is, the first game fell on Friday night, the very same evening I had planned to usher in my big birthday by … [Read more...] about Stuck in a rut feeling sorry for yourself?
Happy 21st birthday daughter
No, this was not a press conference. In fact, even with the presence of local dignitaries, not a news camera was in sight. We had all gathered for a Sonnet Slam and Birthday Party, the sole purpose of which was to recite and listen to the words and poetry of William Shakespeare. (If you have any doubt about the psychological wisdom inheret in his plays, take a look at 10 of Psychology’s Best Quotes and Their Surprising Sources,) The Most Special Kind of Reading Not only is this month when we celebrate the 450th birthday of the bard, it is also National Poetry Month, both of which are reminders that poetry is not just for English majors. Kay Ryan, U. S. Poet Laureate from 2008-2010, wrote, “Poems are transmissions from the depths of whoever wrote them to the depths of the reader. To a greater extent than with any other kind of reading, the reader of a poem is making that poem, is inhabiting those words in the most personal sort of way. That doesn’t mean that you … [Read more...] about Shakespeare for Everyone

Source: Kinga/Shutterstock I’ve never liked the word “unmarried.” I don’t like “never married,” either. As a lifelong single woman, I don’t like to define myself in terms of what I am not. My life is about who I am—what I do, who I care about, what I care about, how I think, and what I aspire to. The popular stories of our time do not make it easy for single people to define themselves without referring to marriage.
