Yifat Cohen66,596If you follow me and hear me talk, you know I'm all about engagement and I'm convinced that Hangouts will change the world and make it more personalized. (In a good great way).But it's almost impossible to do with over 35K followers (can't even imagine what people with over 100k or a million do..)SO LET'S GET PERSONAL. I DARE YOU.Let's just Hangout and get to know each other, shall we?THE HANGOUT WILL BE INITIATED FROM THE +G+GoTo Gal PAGEYou'll have to follow that page in order to be able to join us. So do it now, it takes 2 sec.RSVP and when this goes live you'll see a link to join the Hangout. First come first serve. If the hangout is full, stick around and a spot might open for you. I'll Hangout for an hour with as many people who show up - just for funTHIS IS NOT AN ON-AIR HANGOUTSo no one will see you but the people in the Hangout. Meaning, if this is your first time, feel free to jump in and give it a try.You can ask me anything you want if I can ask you anything I want ;)We can talk G+tips, Hangouts questions, or just about us and stuff we like (Have you watched the last James Bond movie? I got a few things I have to say about that one...lol)So RSVP now, and let's get to know each other - up close and personal------ #gplusgotogal   #hangouts   #engagement   #howto   #googleplustips  Want to Hangout and not sure how? Give this a try.2012-11-29 18:00:0041G+

Mike Elgan3,437,756Behold! The new League of Extraordinary Circle Friends!My League of Extraordinary Circle Friends is my hand-picked group of super charming super-sharers! I want you to do three things: 1. Click the "Add people" button below and circle this group (especially if you've circle this group previously -- doing this will update the group without duplicates). 2. Share this post with all your circles. 3. Share this post with people who are looking for awesome people to circle on G+. I've added four new people to the League.+Amira Elgan! Yes: She's my wife. And I've been trying to avoid adding her for a year. But her stream is perfect for the League so I've added her. +Noble Ackerson is a super nice and interesting guy, a super nerd and consummate glasshole -- he uses Google Glass to great effect to bring you into his world. In fact, the only bigger glasshole I know is... +Cecilia Abadie and Noble work at the same company, and Ceclia is another Glass user with a wonderful Google+ stream. +Andreas Katifes gives you a window into Greek scenes and Greek food that's so compelling you might accidentally quit your job and move to Greece. Welcome to the League, everyone! 2014-07-27 23:39:2625111237CC G+

Jason Darrell20,419A Circle of Bloggers -|- FYIOver time, this circle has fluctuated in populace and purpose. It's simply called "Blogger" - at one point or another, I've read a blog, liked what I've seen and added the author thus.There will be some noticeable absences. I have Pro Copywriters, G+ on Steroids and Google Awesome circles, too. If you're not in here, blog and I engage regularly, you're in one of those.However, being in this circle doesn't preclude you from being in those others. I know several people here I have in multiple circles.This isn't a 'shared circle' as in: add your name, plus 1 it and share it.These peops have been hand-picked by me over (almost) 3 years. And, according to Circloscope, all have posted content within the last 6 weeks (unless they're exceptionally talented and they warrant inclusion due to the magnitude of their blogging skills, in which case I've left them in).Lastly, if you're included and have never posted content in your life, accept my apologies and drop me a note to be removed.2014-07-11 11:43:174091005CC G+

Daniel Mihai Popescu51,115This is Wonders, a circle you all know!A "+1" will be greatly appreciated, but of course it is not a requirement. You are not required to do anything :)I hope you receive the notification, and if it is so, it means you are in the circle. The circle is old, but I still do some experiments. #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle   #maximumperformance  When I created the circle, I was curious if you have any proposition of friends to be included :) I still wonder if you have such friends. I shall create another circle, or a combination, I'll see :)Anyway, if you are original enough, and comment on what you like, you don't need to be shared in a circle to become famous, don't you think?If you add this circle (this is the reason of me sharing it), you will have a pleasant surprise on your stream! If you don't believe me, it's your loss.2014-06-18 17:20:574441183885CC G+

Stephan Hovnanian27,240Conversation Hosts on Google+Circle number 2 that I talked about in my latest ebook on managing your Google+ circles (http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY) is a way for newer users to include activity in their stream that consistently has value and discussion. In other words, these people continually debunk the ghost-town myth, and are very welcoming to newcomers on the platform. I'm sending my audience your way. Take good care of them.Pick up a copy of Google+ Pro Tips: Managing your Google+ Circles now: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00IU1JXUY (you do not need a Kindle device to read kindle ebooks, just a free reader app available on iOS, Android, and desktop).  #googleplus   #stephanhovprotip   #stephanhovnanian  2014-03-06 22:55:17347821CC G+
Paige Keaton57,202This is my Women's circle. Stuffed with amazing people. A really decent add to anyone's circles.  Thanks ladies for being so great to me and my G+ experience.  Some people may have not been included in this circle share. I can only share 500 at one time. This circle exceeds that. Sorry ahead of time. #whateverwednesday   #wednesdaywisdom   #wednesdaymotivation  2014-03-05 15:08:18501211623CC G+
Daniel Mihai Popescu39,070The Engagers!I have experimenting some technical difficulties with G+, so please be patient with me.If by "engagement" you meaning "sharing circles", it's something I have ceased to do from a few months now.It is more important to be in a circle, so people who add it, will add you as well, don't you think?I do not pretend anything from you in exchange to be in my circles, even if I know that it is customary to promise the moon if someone shares your circles and pats your back (this is a very euphemistic way of putting the problem). My circles are not based on that. I have expressed my opinions several times, so who knows me, in fact knows them too. I'm not teasing "new" ones to add me back, so that's not my circles' purpose.I have shared this one with the circle too, and  I hope you are all, just fine :)A "plus one" will be greatly appreciated. Thank you! #danielmihaipopescusharedcircle If I forgot someone, don't worry, I have many circles and circles combinations :) I have shared so little in the last weeks, because I couldn't log into G+ directly. Today looks like a miracle. Yesterday I could log for exactly ten minutes. But I keep the flow open, because I post directly from the browser or the blogs which have G+ buttons.The thing I'm most sorry for not being able to log in, is that I can't say "happy birthday" to the people celebrating their birthdays when I'm not here :)I hope they'll understand.2014-03-04 20:56:2045712975168CC G+
Jean-François Durocher3,158I've never shared any circle but I'll try it today. This circle is on that I built over the last month or so of interesting people on G+.

Google, Tell Me. Is My Son a Genius? This is the intriguing, disturbing, maddening, head-scratching, and, more than a little infuriating, question that parents clack into Google search, according to Seth Stephens-Davidowitz of the NY Times, in their intriguing, disturbing, maddening, head-scratching, yet understandable quest to determine, more often than not, whether their sons, not their daughters, are intellectually gifted.

Is there anything wrong with parents wanting to know whether their child is "gifted," and, therefore, whether they might need some sort of focused educational program? Absolutely nothing.

What concerns do parents disproportionately have for their daughters? Primarily, anything related to appearance.

Is there anything wrong with parents being less concerned with their daughters intellectual brain power and more concerned with... more »

Dear Men of Google+:

I've been on G+ since the second week of its existence, and from the very beginning I've felt welcomed by men on this platform. This was eye-opening, because, as a writer of literary nonfiction, some of which explores social, cultural and political issues that affect the lives of women (in which I'm naturally interested given that my father died when I was young, and my mother became a working mom within 24 hours), I'd always been warned to stay away from anything on social media that could ignite the dreaded fear of feminism - you know, all that ooga booga booga about politics and religion at the dinner table.

Stay away, for instance, from raising the issue that it's 2014, but women still make, on average, only 77 cents for every dollar that a man earns.

But G+ is a long table at which interesting people talk about things that are... more »

Lying here
my body feels like the Bell Tower 
in Siena's Palazzo Pubblico.
Stretching to fly through the white
Longing to reach the blue.

My body is a seed planted a foot beneath the soil,
I look up and can see a crack in the cobbled piazza stones.
If I could reach my arm up just a bit higher,
perhaps I might push a finger through to the air.

With a little sunlight
With a little water
With a little wonder
A branch my might sprout from my fingernail
and call forth the other three and bring along my thumb.

And give them each courage to push through the Earth
into the light, to see the white, to ponder the blue.

Perhaps a shoulder might follow
Upward Upward Upward
dragging my neck and head with it,
until at last my torso would be above the earth
like the Bell Tower.

I'm riveted by the result of today's Supreme Court decision stating that family-owned corporations with religious beliefs against certain types of contraception do not have to provide insurance coverage for them.

Five Justices - Kennedy, Thomas, Scalia, Roberts and Alito - all men, upheld family-owned Hobby Lobby's right to deny employees certain contraceptives based on that company's religious objections to them, in an opinion written for the Court by Justice Alito.

Four Justices - Sotomayor, Kagan, Ginsburg and Breyer - three of whom are women, expressed their dissent, which was written for the Court by Justice Ginsburg.

Although we would like to believe that the law is clear, irrefutable, incontrovertible and impossible to misconstrue, we know that the reality is that the law must be interpreted by our Justices. Just how those interpretations are made... more »

Morning everyone. On Friday I posted about It's Official: The Boomerang Kids Won't Leave, an article in the NY Times that got 1,600 comments on the Times site. I got 82 and I am thrilled so many people took the time to talk with me and one another about this issue, which is getting a lot of press lately, not only in the Times.

BUT...I now feel I entirely missed the opportunity to mention in my introduction to that post that our own +Catherine Wells wrote Peril and Power in a Fairy Tale: One Woman's Reckoning, for the +SynaptIQ+ *Journal for Social Era Knowledge,* the tale of her own journey - from teenager to young woman to young professional to young mother - and the lessons she learned along the way about dreaming big, then confronting the possibility and disappointment within those dreams, and her ultimate choice to get really 'real' about her life. ... more »

Hmmm...... Childhood is a fairly recent economic innovation. For most of recorded history, a vast majority of people began working by age 4, typically on a farm, and were full time by 10. As the country grew wealthier over the ensuing decades, childhood expanded along with it. Eventually, teenagers were no longer considered younger, less-competent adults but rather older children who should be nurtured and encouraged to explore. - Adam Davidson, the NY Times

As a matter of practical reality, I began working for money outside my mother's home at 14, and I haven't stopped working since.

I'd be curious to know others' reaction to this article...

“By having at least one daughter, judges learn about what it’s like to be a woman, perhaps a young woman, who might have to deal with issues like equity in terms of pay, university admissions or taking care of children.” - Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg

In a newly published study by Maya Sen and Adam Glynn, in the Department of Political Science at the University of Rochester, titled Identifying Judicial Empathy: Does Having Daughters Cause Judges to Rule for Women's Issues?, the finding is that "conditional on the number of children a judge has, judges with daughters consistently vote in a more feminist fashion on gender issues than judges who have only sons."

What is interesting to me about the attached article and the afore-mentioned study, is that it highlights the growth in awareness of Supreme Court JusticeWilli... more »

Why is it that so many think their "truest self" needs to be recognized by others in order to be a 'true self?'

"Cleaning up this place, I’ve felt as if I’ve finally gotten to know a parent,” Paul said. “I’ve spent the last few months getting to know what he considered his truest self." - Paul Spillinger, son of Raymond Spillinger

Why do we need validation by anyone in order to be who we really are?

Why don't we teach children from the very beginning to do what they love to do, no matter the circumstances, which we can rarely control anyway?

"Spillenger is certainly as good as a lot of the people in that movement. His work isn’t going to change the way history is written, but there’s still a value to it." - Theodore Stebbens, The Fogg Museum, Harvard

I cannot remember a time in my life when women haven't been held hostage by the advice of various gurus, charlatans, proselytizers, hucksters, snake oil peddlers and sundry and assorted famous and infamous experts who preach and prattle on about how we should behave, how we should dress, how we should act, what we should do, what we should look like, how we should express ourselves...how we should be... in order to manifest our destinies and succeed in life.

When I was a teenager it was: make sure everyone likes you.

When I was in college, it was: study hard...and make sure everyone likes you.

When I entered the business world, it was: work really hard, work long hours, but be sure not to show anyone up...and make sure everyone likes you.

When I was an actor, it was: be sexy, be beautiful, be thin, be slightly crazy, be controversial, be yourself, don't be... more »

Hi, everyone. Apologies for the less than perfect sound quality on this video. I was outside at a beautiful grass airstrip called Sunbury Island, and it was fairly gusty and even though I had the sound up I couldn’t do better than this. But in the hopes that you’d forgive me, I thought I’d give it a shot and post it anyway.

I spent the weekend deep in the heart of beautiful Pennsylvania learning to fly this plane (officially a Light Sport Aircraft), which is called a taildragger. I learned to fly on tricycle gear planes (like a Cessna 172 and a Diamond 40...actually, I first learned to fly in a glider, which is a plane without an engine, but that's a whole 'nother kettle of fish), which are planes that have a nose wheel under, Yes, the nose, and the main wheels under the wings aft of the center of gravity.

The data indicate that overall high school GPA is significantly higher among women, but men have significantly higher annual earnings. 

Ladies, I don't care what studies say (and they may very well reflect this same information for years to come), but our goal should be to tell our daughters and those young women we mentor that they should do their very best - in school and on the job - that they possibly can no matter what the circumstances.

Ultimately, doing one's best is a self-esteem and a self-respect issue and it is the only way to change the world and to enhance consciousness about issues such as this.

Equal pay for equal work is of course the goal for all of us...but in the meanwhile, we should all do the best we can possibly do... for ourselves first and foremost.

With Mrs. Clinton on one side and Ms. Sandberg on the other — and Beyoncé somewhere in between — feminism has become, well, cool. - Jessica Bennett, Feminism: One Conference at a Time

In A Woman's De-Liberation: There Never Was a Sexual Revolution, which I wrote for the +SynaptIQ+ Journal for Social Era Knowledge (link below), I confessed that I, who was essentially a daughter of the movement, had never considered myself a Feminist, even when I had managed to work my way up the ladder of CBS Records to become the youngest Director of Customer Merchandising, at 24, that the company had ever had.

I didn't consider myself a Feminist because I thought the movement -  inspired as it had been by the absurd assumption that all women are the same and should be able to find fulfillment and happiness safely ensconced within the walls of their homes, families andmarria... more »

Could someone please, finally, explain to me what the definition of "pushy" is when referring to a woman's behavior at the top of her professional organization? Is being "pushy" in the newsroom a different kind of pushy that is required in the delivery room when a woman is giving birth?

Is being "pushy" in a corporation different than the kind of pushy a mother has to be when pushing a stroller around the streets of New York, dodging traffic, shopping, multi-tasking in her life?

Is being "pushy" at work different than the kind of push-happy a woman needs to be when doing push-ups at the gym?

Is being pushy at work a different kind of pushy that is needed to start most cars these days - you know, that cute little button on the console? No? It's a different kind of pushy? I'm all ears...

What is an experience worth? What is the cost? Financially? Emotionally? Physically? Intellectually? Philosophically? Spiritually? Why is it so easy to use the power of money to justify endangering not only our own lives, but the lives of those effectively "rented" with our money?

Now who will look after us? We can’t farm. He used to go to the mountains, and feed us with that money. Though he was my son, he was like our parents. Now who will pay our rent? And who will look after our grandchildren? I feel like we’re sick, like we’re suffocating. - Nimali Sherpa, mother of deceased Ang Kali Sherpa

KIANA "I went in there thinking none of the students at Fieldston would understand what any of the kids from my school go through on a daily basis, because they’re most likely all from rich households. But my partner and I had a lot more in common than I thought we would, and these kids were not stuck up like I thought they’d be. Some of them went through similar things that kids from my school have gone through — in some cases, maybe worse.”

I read The Tale of Two Schools with intense interest because it took me right back to the years of my education when I was a teenager - a girl who was, for all intents and purposes, considered a Have Little among girls who Have A Lot.

'Tis true. Really...'tis. There is horse therapy for people - souls who are shy, or who have been traumatized in some way, or who have illnesses and need to connect with creatures more sensitive than humans.

And there is art therapy for humans - souls who have dementia, or who are cooped up in nursing homes, or who are immobilized, or for any of a number of reasons young souls, old souls, any soul that might need to be put in touch with the healing powers of art.

I hardly know where to begin deconstructing some of the lunacy in the attached article about why girls are doing better in school and the work place at the moment than boys, but here is one of the more inane quotes that has gotten under my skin: ...today’s education system fails to acknowledge the profound differences between boys and girls. It asks boys to sit still for hours every day and provides them with few role models in front of the classroom. Just as the dearth of female science professors hampers would-be female science majors in college, the dearth of male fourth-grade teachers creates problems for 10-year-old boys.

I hadn't known, until now, but I'm awfully glad I've finally been enlightened, that asking women to sit still for hours every day - in their cubicles as secretaries, receptionists, typists, production assistants, manicurists...whatever - is somehowa... more »

I did not grow up with money, but I was a smart kid and got scholarships to attend top notch schools with other kids who did grow up with a lot of money. During my high school and college years it was always more than a little strange, and admittedly often painful, to have a Close Encounter of the Money Kind with someone who grew up with a vastly different financial security blanket than I did.

My school chums were good people - smart and funny, talented and ambitious in diverse ways. But there was always a kind of eye-glaze thing that happened when the conversation would suddenly turn to money, perhaps because my classmates were going on a family holiday over Christmas and I was staying at school to fulfill the work study part of my financial package.

I don't recall ever being jealous of a friend whose journey through life was more padded than mine. But I do recall being affected... more »

My favorite writer has died. I remember reading One Hundred Years of Solitude in a state of wonderment. It was pure joy to read one of his sentences, some of which marched on defiantly for pages. Marquez's exuberance of expression, his refusal to bow to any of the many rules so many would impose on writers - be brief, pare down, trim, don't decorate or embellish, be clear, make it easy, keep your characters to a minimum - felt like being let out of prison. Like flying. I could taste his words. Smell them. Feel them. Hear them. See the pictures they painted, the characters he described.

I thought, 'This is writing. It is cooking, painting, composing, gardening, architecting, weaving and sculpting all at once. It is the Big Bang. Except that you don't have to wait millions of years for the light to reach you. It is immediate. Visceral. Delicious. Unforgettable.

It's Spring. Finally. I don't remember a time in my life when I have not been viscerally affected by nature. Everything changes within me. A particular kind of joy is woken up. Details are more detailed. Colors are more colorful. I can feel on my skin the difference between 'wind,' 'breeze,' 'gust' and 'gale,' oh so much more personally than trying to describe them with words. 

I am instantly lonely when the sun starts to go down, as though I am saying goodbye to a friend I will never again see. I become giddy about a pending sunrise, as though I have never before seen one and I have just regained my eyesight after a long period of mysterious blindness.

I can watch a caterpillar make its way across the patio for an hour and think I have spent my time quite wisely.

Titstare is an app where you take photos of yourself staring at tits, Mr. (David) Boulton began, as photographs of women’s chests on a cellphone flashed on the screen behind him. After some banter, Mr. (Jethro) Batts concluded, This is the breast hack ever.

I always feel a little strange when I read about some new toy, or game, or app featuring women's body parts that has been thunk up by fellas to entertain themselves. It's not that I don't get it. After all I did grow up with an older brother and, yep, Playboy was there right alongside National Geographic, which seems oddly animalistic and appropriate if you want to justify it in some sort of twisted way. You know...an appreciation of all that nature and stuff.

I'd say that before Slomo, I became the typical, institutionalized, educated Western man. In other words, I was driving a BMW to work. I was working long hours, I was paying my taxes and doing everything by the standards of society and so on, just like everybody else in the work force. And, frankly, I intended to just work myself on into oblivion and get old and die. That was pretty much the scenario. But now, I experience myself like a tip of a great iceberg of consciousness.

Slomo (Slow Motion), the gentlemanly subject of the self same titled documentary by Josh Izenberg, used to be Dr. John Kitchin, a neurologist, who decided to give up his doctorly life in favor of moving and grooving through life to a decidedly non-medical tune.

But My Fair Lady was a musical, in which Rex Harrison as Henry was a genius. Audrey Hepburn as Eliza was incomparable, and Wilfred Hyde-White as Colonel Pickering was Higgins' perfect foil...and his conscience, I might add.

My Fair Lady was based on George Bernard Shaw's Pygmalion (Shaw was a feminist, but I digress...), so it could hardly have been anything other than brilliant, particularly with with Alan Jay Lerner and... more »

I love a heartfelt apology, particularly when expressed as public regret by someone who became internationally famous by being stridently unapologetic. I'm writing, of course about David Brock. Yes, that, David Brock, who, over 20 years ago committed all of his energy to bringing down Bill Clinton (and therefore Hillary). Brock was the Poster Boy for the ultra conservative faction of Clinton haters that became known as The Vast Right Wing Conspiracy, which wasn't a conspiracy at all, but, rather, a real group of political nut jobs who managed, according to Brock, to brain wash a lot of people into becoming anti-Clintonites...and Brock was one of them.

Interesting things have happened since then. Brock and his posse wasn't able to dismantle the Clintons. No amount of money the Elephants threw at the Donkeys would succeed in getting them (the Donkeys) thrown out of the circus. And since... more »

Perhaps that’s why we see so much vitriol online, so many anonymous, bitter comments, so many imprudent tweets and messy posts. Because creating them is less cathartic, you feel the need to do it more often. When your emotions never quite cool, they keep coming out in other ways.

Actually, I think the real reason we see so much vitriol online is two-fold: 1) Anger is the easiest emotion to access, and 2) Its sudden appearance in a convo very often succeeds in sending all but the equally (or competitively) angry heading for the hills.

Uncontrolled anger is not only easy to come by, it is cheap, flimsy and rarely constructive. What a difference between a blast of hot air from a vexed reader, seemingly unwilling to dig deep into their own unexplored reserves of self-expression for bon mots more powerful than, "You are a pompous pea-brain," or, "You are a bloatedb... more »

The sun has kissed the morning
I kissed my husband goodbye
I could kiss the sky
The mourning doves kiss on the tree outside my window
Do you remember your first kiss?
Would you kiss a stranger?

You must remember this 
A kiss is just a kiss, a sigh is just a sigh 
The fundamental things apply 
As time goes by 
And when two lovers woo 
They still say, "I love you"
On that you can rely 
No matter what the future brings 
As time goes by
 
Moonlight and love songs 
Never out of date 
Hearts full of passion 
Jealousy and hate 
Woman needs man 
And man must have his mate 
That no one can deny 
It's still the same old story 
A fight for love and glory 
A case of do or die 
The world will always welcome lovers 
As time goes by

My Garden in Winter
Is barren
And I am bare
Words and leaves take leave,
Like oak leaves blown in the wind
Words caught in a dry mouth
Waterless
Sun-starved
Unformed

My thoughts left unsung
Unvisited by birdsong
Or caterpillar crawl
Or frog hop
Or mantis prayer
I await the promise in a magnolia blossom
A rose bud
A forsythia flourish

The hydrangea knows when to be quiet
And the dogwood
And the garden snake

I imagine lying down in the mulch at the end of Summer
And going to sleep in the Fall with the Mantis ooetheca
Only what survives Winter will blossom come Spring

The birds will tell me when to fill their bath
I will find a young cardinal there
Peering into the kitchen window

Wake up!
The play is about to begin

Ordinary Love UNIVERSAL MUSIC PUBLISHING GROUP HAS PULLED THIS VIDEO FROM MY POST...but it is still viewable on YouTube (guess they don't want to offend YouTube, but don't mind offending me...) at the below link:
U2 sings "Ordinary Love" on Jimmy Fallon's very first Tonight Show! It sounds fantastic with Roots.

Ordinary Love, by U2 commemorates the love between Nelson and Winnie Mandela and Mr. Mandela's sadness at the loss of his marriage - so many years in prison...how did they do it for so long? Is there another, better kind of love? Ordinary Love is fine with me. The lyrics are beautiful and I have printed them below so that you can read them while you listen to the performance (which was on Jimmy Fallon's The Tonight Show BTW):

This ice dance between Meryl Davis and Charlie White is sublime. The artistry, the skill, the music, the relationship between them, the choreography...all of it perfection.

On the surface it seems the culmination of years of working toward a common goal, yet that journey is also one of discovery...each dancer growing and learning about the other, each breaking down personal barriers, pushing themselves, maturing individually and together, and creating, in the end, something of extraordinary beauty.

Yes, Meryl David and Charlie White won the Gold medal in Sochi for ice dancing. But...what they have really given us extends way beyond the Olympics and competing for a medal. If we were all given the opportunity to aspire to the creation of something this beautiful in our lives (whether we have the ability to become Olympic champions or not...it is the intent that matters), how would it... more »

Good morning, everyone... I was going to attach the current Rolling Stone cover story on Pope Francis, which is rather a rave review of the man, much to the chagrin (horror, actually) of Tea Party Patriots and Erstwhile Conservative Ideologues, who are used to beating voters over the head with their perceptions of the Bible.

Since Francis's election, it's more than a little amusing to watch these folks reel from his inclusive and compassionate approach, not to mention his growing international popularity, as accustomed as they had become to using their interpretation of religious doctrine to create a culture of exclusion, condemnation and fear...you know, the We're Okay, You're Not Okay Finishing School for Entitled Boys and Girls.

Forgive my appearance, my Lady.
Last night before you turned out the light 
we had the nicest chat.
The Mourning Doves
whispering secretly to one another as they do.
Something about an ice storm, 
and how unkind the Robins were to leave me all alone.

When you can't sleep, I know
my moonlit rustling leaves remind you of the sea.

But forgive my posture, my Lady.
I am heavy today,
and tired.
There was no singing upon my branches this morning,
and it is not easy to lift my head.

Perhaps I'll just reach my arms down to the Earth,
and lay myself down and rest awhile.

If I don't wake up,
in the Spring will you tell the Cardinals not to feel bad if they don't built a nest in my fallen self?

I will understand.
And I will remember their little ones from last year.

The Dean of Harvard Business School, Nitin Nohria, publicly apologized for the poor treatment of women at the institution, specifically its distinctly unwelcoming vibe, which made it difficult for women to fully integrate into this esteemed University's business program, no matter their prior academic achievements, no matter their worth, no matter their contributions.

I posted about it in early September, and closed my own words with a quote by Martin Luther King, Jr., which has special meaning today as, apparently, Harvard listened to, took in, and processed the criticism and has pledged to change:

Change does not roll in on the wheels of inevitability, but comes through continuous struggle. And so we must straighten our backs and work for our freedom. A man can't ride you unless your back is bent. - Martin Luther King, Jr.

Yoda said: Fear leads to anger; anger leads to hate; hate leads to suffering.  I can't think of anyone who has expressed in writing the reality of encountering The Elderlies better than Jacques Brel in his song Old Folks, sung here by Natascia Diaz.

Where will you be when you are old? With your family? Your friends? Alone? Will you be rich? Or poor? In good health? Or ill perhaps? Will you be mentally engaged? Or failing up there in some frightening way? How, and with whom, will you while away the hours of the day?

I've been reading the articles this week about the elderly Koreans who gather at a McDonald's in Flushing, Queens to spend time together, to provide one another company. To come in from the heat, the cold, the wind, the rain, the snow...

They might buy large coffees and sip them for hours. They might get kicked out by the police, to whom the management has complained because they view these elderly people as interlopers, as loiterers.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
By Lewis Carroll

"The sun was shining on the sea,
      Shining with all his might:
He did his very best to make
      The billows smooth and bright —
And this was odd, because it was
      The middle of the night.

The moon was shining sulkily,
      Because she thought the sun
Had got no business to be there
      After the day was done —
"It's very rude of him," she said,
      "To come and spoil the fun."

The sea was wet as wet could be,
      The sands were dry as dry.
You could not see a cloud, because
      No cloud was in the sky:
No birds were flying overhead —
      There were no birds to fly.

The Walrus and the Carpenter
      Were walking close at hand;
They weptlike anything to see

Google, Tell Me. Is My Son a Genius? This is the intriguing, disturbing, maddening, head-scratching, and, more than a little infuriating, question that parents clack into Google search, according to Seth Stephens-Davidowitz of the NY Times, in their intriguing, disturbing, maddening, head-scratching, yet understandable quest to determine, more often than not, whether their sons, not their daughters, are intellectually gifted.

Is there anything wrong with parents wanting to know whether their child is "gifted," and, therefore, whether they might need some sort of focused educational program? Absolutely nothing.

What concerns do parents disproportionately have for their daughters? Primarily, anything related to appearance.

I do not understand one single thing about this convicted murderer's execution in Ohio today.
Not the 20 years of failed appeals.
Not the decision to reject a more humane execution (is there such a thing?).

Not the decision to employ a combination of drugs that assured a miserable demise (is there someone who feels good about this?)
Not any and/or all of the subsequent five executions that will be meted out in the State of Ohio in 2014.

Does someone believe that, lying there on his death bed gasping for air, his crime of so long ago was somehow ameliorated? Lessened? Revenged? Assuaged?

That he has been successfully punished? That the public manner of his death stands as a warning to others thinking of committing such crimes?

That it changes the fate of the young woman...or her memory? Or really makes those who knew her and miss her sleep more... more »

Hallelujah. Finally. A man, who is a self-described Second Amendment Fundamentalist and respected gun journalist has spoken out in favor of gun control. His reward? He was fired by Guns & Ammo magazine (what a catchy title, eh? Such imagination, but I digress!)

No Siree, there is no such thing as Freedom of Speech in the United States of America, which is controlled by the NRA. The First Amendment takes a back seat to the Second Amendment whenever the ugly topic of setting limits on gun ownership in this country raises its insistent hand.

We put so many barriers in our heads, it doesn't want to go, it doesn't want to go, but then if we just open ourselves up and just try different things, something opens up and allows the body to move in a way that makes you think it is possible...

So says Elizabeth Rozas-Dobrish a 55-year old former star of the Alvin Ailey company, who, after a hip replacement, at an age when most dancers no longer can strutt their stuff on the boards, returns to the stage to dance Ailey's iconic "Revelations." 

I know this isn't a typical Christmas-type share (whatever that means), but certainly the spirit of it is, and in honor of all of my fellow dance lovers on G+ (and those of you we are slowly introducing to the beauty and power of this gorgeous art form), I wanted to share it.

MERRY CRISPNESS!
(From Madison Square Park, New York City) 

Shepherds move flocks 
To higher ground
Sheep smile while being
Sheered

Wise men wear shorts
And are frankly incensed
Mary and Joseph 
Need no shelter
From the cold….and
Baby Jesus
Is completely unswaddled

What does this mean
It means…or so
It seems
That we have turned up 
The heat
But we have not yet learned
To walk in the light

Fortunately 
The light is still on

Blessings of the Season,

Here we have the (physical) architectural visions of Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, which I read about with more than a little bit of interest. Not just because my father was an architect, mind you, and I therefore am slightly obsessed with the discipline, but because I do believe that our physical surroundings figure significantly in how we think, what we think, our health, our individual and collective States of Mind, our relationships with ourselves, those we love, and those with whom we work, and even with, to be blunt, our enemies around the world.

I don't pretend to think that if each of us were fortunate enough to live and work in a beautiful physical space that we would be healthy, happy and productive, and that there would be no War or obstacles to overcome. I don't pretend... more »

She’s been in the company three years longer than I have, and I would say she was my biggest inspiration. Whatever she did, I did. She played the violin, so I played the violin. She went to dance, so I went to dance.

How many boys follow in the footsteps of their big sisters? Robert Fairchild did. Now both he and his fiancee, Tiler Peck, are star dancers with the New York City Ballet. I grew up dancing, but it seems there used to be a much bigger awareness of the beauty - both feminine and masculine - of dance than there is now.

It isn't easy to find dance of any kind featured on television anymore, which has been taken over by the money making world of big time sports.

Good morning, everyone,

I love flying. I love the American landscape. I love the photographer Andrew Moore's respect for those vast expanses of land in between our great cities, which are not only hard to access, but are not often traveled, not necessarily because they are hard to access, but because they are no longer considered, no longer held, consciously, within the framework of our imagination about America. Yes, sometimes we think about being "out there" - on the prairies and the deserts and over the mountains - but it is often when we have seen a tornado blast through, or when we hear of some other natural disaster - a flood, a blizzard - that we realize that America is composed of so much space that is not thought of as livable, or where people used to live but no longer do for a variety of complex economic and social reasons.

“We’re almost like an opposite ’50s couple. I’m staying at home, I do the dishes, I do the laundry, I do everything the housewife does. I’m just a dude,” said Mr. Skinner, Nicole Black’s husband.

We are gradually, inevitably, inexorably working our way toward realizing that men and women both have invaluable things to contribute not only to the business world, but to family life. Perhaps the pendulum will have to swing the other way (toward more women working and greater earning power) before it swings back to the middle and something more balanced.

But this step is, I think, necessary, so that each voice can be heard and weigh in on what they need. Most people (both men and women) that I know need fulfillment and satisfaction from several different areas of life. Most people I know need a balance between love and friendship, work, creativity, play andmoney-making.... more »
