Dispatches from the network and updates from the Foundation.
Like many of you, I’m sure, I am driven, focused, and ambitious. As my best friend likes to say, I don’t meander! Maybe it’s the New Yorker in me, but I want to get from point A to point B as efficiently as possible. It turns out that to keep my sanity, I needed to start taking the long way.

"For me, the healing message here about self-care is that my awareness of care for Self needs to be moving from outside reminder towards internal commitment, and that this goodness to/with Self is best practiced as a lifelong daily personal renewal… b’ezrat hashem – with G-d’s help."
