When we’re perplexed, it helps to dig down in the roots – and this goes for language, too. One of my favorite lessons from divinity school was a casual conversation about the root words for Bravery and Courage. The root for brave is linked to a front or face. Bravery is a kind of armor, […]

What is your superpower? One of my favorite little books is All My Friends are Superheroes, a quirky story where, indeed, everyone has a curious ability.

Who are the Apsaras in your life? If you are lucky, over time you begin to have friends who have been with you most of your life, friends who can remind you of your own essence. My college sisters from Wellesley are such friends, steadfast and honest and caring and true. Among these sisters is the amazing […]
