What I’ve been doing

  1. Walking the neighborhood with Toby, sweet dog, mine since August. #rescuelove
  2. Updating the first book I ever wrote (The New Jewish Wedding, 1984, updated 2004) which is now called THE JEWISH WEDDING NOW. This isn’t a revision so much as a rewrite. Love the cover.
  3. Going to live performances (theater, music, dance) to keep my heart beating.
  4. Limiting intake of news. Never before noon.
  5. Spending time with positive people.
  6. Calling, writing, marching, joining, donating, looking for ways to make a difference.
