• Everything I Need to Know...

    "Everything I Need to Know I Learned at Vogue"... "Have you ever imagined yourself working for the world's most powerful fashion magazine? I did. But after I landed this impossible-to-get job, I found myself on a wild ride--- one for which I was not initially equipped. So Vogue made me over, from the inside out. And when they were finished, I was permanently transformed. I discovered that Vogue had its own process for taking a twenty-something and turning them into a polished professional, and I know their secrets for doing so. And here's the best part, it turns out that following Vogue's unique formula is critical for success in fashion or anything other industry: technology, education, finance, law, medicine, non-profit, you name it.

    DAY 1- 40 MILES DOWN- 40 TO GO- VALOR RUN NW... Hey there, day is done!I just did a hasty, unedited synopsis of today. Here goes:Day 1 is complete. What a day full of emotion, love and remembrance. The morning was really emotional. Joining us at the memorial ceremony was Re McClung, Gold Star mother of Major Megan McClung, who was killed in Iraq in 2006. She was loving, generous of spirit and I was so honored to have her with us. Good friend and colleague, David Love, led us in a remembrance of the bravery of our servicewomen, particularly Army LT Ashley White, killed in Afghanistan while serving a member of a Cultural Support Team. Dave highlighted the fact that our fallen women are not victims, but women of strength who answered the call to serve. After the service, we headed out, walking the first mile.

  • a few lost toenails..120 miles run

    Day 3 is done! O.M.G....Valor Run NW...You may notice my posts are getting done later and later each day. The baths are longer, the dinner more delicious, the route recon for the following day a little more careful and deliberate as I am slightly more tired.How’d it go? Awesomely magical, thanks to friends and family. I have to start with 3am to do it justice. Woke up like one of those women in the Niquil commercial, eyes wide open, thinking the following thought, “Holy makerel, I just passed the half way point. Wait, that means I’m ONLY half way and this is L.O.N.G.” Then I forced myself to give it up to God, reminding myself to continue to pray at every mile, savor every minute and love the sense of comradery and commitment to the fallen. I decided to eat again and I opened up FB. Suddenly, I noticed a message from Matt Denny, 29.

  • Stories Worth Telling

    Filmmaking is a chance to live many lifetimes.Robert Altman...Some people are movie buffs. Some aren't. But I defy you to find anyone who can't rattle off at least one movie line that at some point in their lives moved them, inspired them, tickled them, spoke to them in some special way, to the point that it became for them not just an ingrained memory, but a catchphrase of sorts, their tag-line, a veritable mantra. Movies affect us like that. The best ones become so closely intertwined in our memories with events in our own lives (a good date, a bad date, a sad time, a happy time) that it's as if those two hours in a darkened theater, immersed in a fictional world, were not just entertainment, but a necessary adjunct - an extension or expansion, perhaps an explication - of our own real life, our actual relationships, our most deeply felt emotions....

  • Mean Girl Mommies-Part Deux

    Mean Girl MommiesPart Deux...The celebrity scandal scale must have been at an all-time low, as my phone started frantically buzzing. “Have you seen THIS?” my friends asked, as I swiped and expected a link to another Magic Mike XXL trailer. Alas, it wasn’t Channing Tatum’s pecs but an editorial in the New York Times by a former Upper East Sider. In an effort to promote her upcoming book Park Avenue Primates, Wednesday Martin managed to offend every mom-with-a-blog-and-a-luxe-tote as she regaled her Sunday readers with stories of overprivileged families who excluded her brood.

  • Valor Knows No Gender

    "Valor is stability, not of legs and arms, but of courage and the soul."-- Michel de Montaigne...One of my earliest, fondest memories is of sitting with my grandfather as he recounted his days in the military in World War II, comprised, in significant part, of his years as a POW in the infamous Stalag 17. Although my grandparents have long since passed away, I vividly recall sitting on their orange-and-green, thin-striped, 1960s-era, itch-inducing synthetic twill couches -- a pitcher of rum and coke between them and a tray of Vienna fingers for my three sisters and me -- as he spun what we were sure must be, at least in part, fabulistic yarns about his wartime odyssey...We were, no pun intended, a captive audience. And at 8 or 9 years old, we knew very little about, and had even less interest in, World War II or history in general, for that matter.
