  • What Does Love Look Like?

    By Ilana Angel

    November 26, 2013 | 7:06 am

    I think about love often. I am blessed to know love in my family, child, friends, and faith. I have been held hostage by the way love is presented by Hollywood, and bought into the romance sold to me by writers of great love stories. I have dreams and fantasies about how I want...

  • Motherhood 101: Bed, Crying & Perspective

    By Ilana Angel

    September 23, 2013 | 7:48 am

    On Saturday I did not get out of bed until almost 9 in the evening.  I got up, had a cup of tea, and went straight back to bed.  I didn’t answer my phone except to talk with my son who was with his dad for a couple of days.  I slept, read, prayed, and tried to get a little...

    Do you find yourself dragging; craving a nap in the late afternoon? You're not alone. Soft coral beneath the waters near the southern Israeli resort city of Eilat does the same thing.

    I am officially exhausted.  I actually fell asleep today at the dentist.  I was sitting in the waiting room, wondering why my dentist does not serve cocktails, and I dozed off.  The hygienist who was going to clean my teeth had to give me a shake because I was out.  I have been this...

  • Compassion for Octomom

    By Ilana Angel

    May 2, 2012 | 9:08 am

    This morning I walked around my son’s room repeating, “I love this boy”, over and over again.  I said it when I picked up the wet towel off the floor, when I shut the dripping faucet, when I found socks under the bed, and when I took dishes from his desk to the kitchen.  I had...

  • Bullies, Bitches & Blogs

    By Ilana Angel

    This afternoon when I was out running errands, I saw a group of kids on the sidewalk of a residential street.  They appeared to be in their early teens and one girl was screaming at another one.  As I approached them, the screaming girl shoved down the other girl, and kicked her.  I...

  • Soviet Dentists and My Anxiety…

    By Julia Bendis

    June 13, 2011 | 9:46 pm

    Is it just me or do other people have a huge phobia of Dentists?  I don’t know why I have such a fear of them, but I do know that I’d rather have another baby than go to the Dentist.  Actually, now that I think about it, I would even prefer a colonoscopy to having someone put...

  • Sleep, Interrupted

    By Tom Teicholz

    March 25, 2004 | 7:00 pm

    I remember, as a child, trying in vain to stay up to see the ball fall on New Year's Eve. In later years, high school brought concerts that went past midnight and college introduced all-nighters of the studying and partying kind. In the midnight hour came inspiration and revelation...
