Mothering, Mentoring and Magic

As a proud member of the Boomer Nation, I think talking to kids keeps you young.My kids are ages 23 and 20, and even when they were growing up I always enjoyed the opportunity to converse with their peers and other kids of all ages.  (I consider it a major accomplishment that not only am I friends with my kids on Facebook, but I’m also friends with some of their friends - as long as I refrain from making ‘Motherish’ comments on questionable posts).

Purple Goes Green Coast To Coast

This spring it has been my privilege to help organize urban conservation projects for FedEx volunteers in Boston, MA and Orange County, CA. The actual service projects and their geographic locations couldn’t have been more different, but the commitment and spirit of our FedEx volunteers was exactly the same on both coasts.

Reflections on Epic Bike Ride to End AIDS

On Saturday June 12th, I completed the experience of a lifetime. I participated in Aids/LifeCycle 9, a week - long, more than 500 mile bike ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles organized to raise awareness and funds to help put an end to HIV/AIDs.

Parks & Re-creation

I believe that there is a subtle magnetism in Nature, which, if we unconsciously yield to it, will direct us aright - Thoreau   I love to run, especially outside. It’s my time to unplug and let my mind debug from the day’s activities. What I have loved most about living in New York these past two years is running through the parks. From Prospect to Central, these places make the city habitable and bring balance to a world of chaos.

FedEx Team Members Let Loose at Seuss Party

Happy birthday, Dr. Seuss!  On March 2, fifteen FedEx volunteers and approximately 120 Stoner Elementary School children celebrated the famous author’s birthday by reading his books and playing games at a “Seuss on the Loose” carnival, as part of LA’s BEST “Read Across America” initiative. FedEx donated $10,000 to LA’s BEST, one of its local market partners and a nationally known after-school program for at-risk youth in the LA area.
