Updates about Amy (that’s me):
- I traveled and lived out of a backpack for a year and it was totally awesome.
- I got a new job working as an assistant to a CEO of an awesome non-profit and it’s really awesome.
- My new year’s resolution is to go to a happy hour once a week [...]
A surprise twist to my year of “bardo:” I’m back in Philly! An 11-month-old (the child of dear friends) asked me to come and play with him for a couple of months, and it turned out to be an offer I couldn’t refuse. So here I am, living a few blocks from my kids and [...]
So, wow! I have been wandering around for 6 months now, and I thought it would be a good time to notice, ponder, breathe and see what there might be to say about anything.
(But let’s not get our hopes up.)
I wasn’t planning this year to be significant, life-changing or inspiring. My mission was simply to [...]
Thought I’d just pop my face in here for a moment to say Hi (see above) and to let you know I’ve recently posted some photos of my last few months on facebook, in case you wanted to take a look.

Then I thought, maybe it’s what everyone looks like on the inside.
A while ago I gave myself the task of writing more about this for my blog. But [...]
Rather than following the Q&A format in this month’s parenting newsletter, I sent out a copy of the handout I created for a talk I gave to a group from the Holistic Moms Network.
It was such a sweet thing to be in a room full of moms, some dads, and lots of lots of people [...]

I sent this out today:
I am writing to those of you who asked to be reminded about my monthly parenting call (or who signed up for “everything”) to let you know that my conference call will NOT be happening this month. The conference line we were using has been having a lot of problems, [...]
Here’s a copy of the valentine I sent this year.
For over 20 years, I’ve written an annual newsletter called “the children’s page,” and sent it to friends and family as part of our christmas card. When I grew tired of christmas, I decided that valentines day was something I more felt like celebrating. [...]
