Letting Go

By Mihal Levy

Letting go is so much easier when you are lying on a butcher paper covered table, and stuck with needles.  Why is that?  I can let go at my Acupuncturist’s office, but in the real world,... read on

  • Phones, Shmones

    I’ve forgotten how to talk on the phone.  Is that bad?  Look, I get the basics.  It rings, I answer.  But how do you convey emotion?  There are no emoticons, no lol’s.
    How do you know when the other person is thinking, or if the awkward silence is due to the fact you have just... read on

  • Blast Your Breakfast

    My son loves pancakes.  Who doesn’t?  Anything with “cake” in the name has to be good, right?  But making them, that’s another story.  Whether you are making one or fifty, you still need a bowl, a measuring cup, a spoon or whisk, a ladle, a frying pan and a million paper... read on

  • Are You There God?  It’s Me, Mihal

    Dear God,

    It’s been a while.  Sorry we’ve lost touch.  I hope you remember me; we haven’t spoken since the days of my Holly Hobbie diary and its important content - questions about boys and acne care products.  I figured the Internet was the best way to reach you nowadays (and I... read on

    It’s almost New Year’s Eve.  Not the one where you get inebriated, watch a ball drop, and call it a night after singing Auld Lang Syne.  It’s Rosh Hashanah, where even after food, family and guilt, the night is far from over as the guilt lingers.

    Guilty feelings over things... read on

  • The Truth About Kids And Dogs

    Leashes for children.  How convenient, right?  Moms are too busy shopping at the mall or chatting on their cell phones to worry about where their child is at all times, so why not just put a leash on him?  It just makes sense, because when moms are in the middle of that important... read on

  • Life Lessons Learned at the 99 Cent Only Store

    On a recent trip to the 99 Cent Only Store, I got more than my share of Ziploc bags and paper goods for under $10.  As I was checking out, an elderly gentleman behind me smiled at my son (who is 3) and I.  While glancing at my son he said, “They teach us more than we can ever teach... read on

    I envy those that think of themselves first.  There, I said it!  You know?  Someone who looks out for number one, not thinking about number two. Now, there’s a difference when you don’t have a number two in your life, and then of course you are looking out for you and you alone.  Are... read on
