When I was young I took piano lessons.  I hated them.  I begged my mother to let me stop and she said I would regret it if I quit.  I told her if I was not allowed to stop I was going to... read on

  • Me, Him, Us, Them & Shabbat

    I am complicated.  Not difficult, just complicated.  I have a vision for my life that has not changed since I was a little girl.  I always wanted to be a mom. I am.  I always wanted to move to Los Angeles. I did. I always wanted to work in Hollywood. I do.  I always wanted to meet... read on

    Earlier in the week I was running an errand when I came upon a homeless man standing outside a Payless Shoe Store.  He appeared to be in his 60’s, but I bet he was younger.  As I passed him he asked me if I wanted to go with him to Paris for the weekend.  I let him know that I was... read on

    A friend of mine lost his mother last week.  I went to sit Shiva and was truly touched by the loss.  I cried for the pain I felt for my friend, and also for the loss of my own father.  Losing a parent is crushing.  My father has been gone for over 10 years and I still find myself... read on

    After 7 months of dating, and a slow and steady stroll to love, the Englishman is taking my son and me to England to meet his family for two weeks in December.  By slow and steady, of course I mean that I have loved him since our first date, but it took me months to allow myself to... read on

  • Is Sex the New Fairytale?

    By Ilana Angel

    October 7, 2012 | 1:10 pm

    Sex changes for women as we get older.  We go from no experience and thinking all sex is good, to having enough experiences to be able to tell the difference between good and bad sex.  We want meaningful sex, but discover that not only does meaningful not necessarily mean good,... read on

    Why is it that when you are single you cannot find a decent guy to date, but when you are in a relationship, men are not only everywhere, but they are interested in you?  I have been dating the Englishman for almost 7 months and I have never had so many men ask me out.  Very... read on
