I remember the phone calls between a close girlfriend and myself succeeding her fiancé canceling the wedding: the understandable and necessary sadness and pain. The only relief I could offer was the fact that it would one day be a memory; plus the overused cliché, ‘everything happens for a reason’. “You will be glad one day this wedding didn’t happen.” Of course she is now! But does it really? Does everything happen for a reason? Is it pressure we like to take off ourselves? Maybe both. If you’re a glass half full person, then yes: it is all about perspective. But if you’re a glass half empty person, one thing may temporarily derail your entire life plan. [doesn’t just reading … Read More

I once went on a date with a golf pro, turned private golf lesson giver. He ate a cheeseburger and french fries with a knife and fork. We never went out again despite his enthusiasm. Plus, I’ve never been into ‘pretty boys’. The first time I went to Italy, I saw people eat pizza with a knife and fork; they also put corn on pizza!

And whatever is being projected is never and … Read More

And the ~so much~ is the root of the problem: Today’s World The link goes to the Lefsetz Letter, a blog by an experienced exec in the music biz., touting ‘first in music analysis’. This one highlights great observations: Scarcity is History or More Information, Greater Ignorance.  He was recommended by Seth Godin, an internet entrepreneur-genius I admire. Bob Lefsetz writes in a one-stream-of-thought style and yes, mainly about the music business, but the post are … Read More

The Power of Sleep

I don’t even want to write this; probably means I should. Yesterday I started my day at 5 am. Today I attempted to function, not so well, with about 4 hours of inconsistent sleep. Thus, the deficit is REAL! I do not recommend this. I become very negative. my brain hovers over the ‘nots’ and the ‘don’ts’, from the short-fused and impatient place. Do you listen to yourself? Do you know when you are in the right place or the unhealthy place? This is the most extreme example. Sleep-deprivation is the oldest technique in interrogation; the Chinese have known this forever. Coincidentally, todays Delancey Place email is on sleep deprivation, an excerpt out of the book Dreamland: Adventures in the … Read More
