Generous by Nature

In his best-selling book, Five Languages of Love, Gary Chapman describes the five primary ways people show love. One of them is by giving gifts. That is my way. I love giving gifts. I mean LOVE. Christmas is my absolute favorite time of year. Find me whistling through the mall and boutiques looking for hours […]

Why you have to meet Jeniveve Delacroix

She is the young woman in the corner of the cafe engrossed in a  latte and a Foucault book. She is the one you can’t keep your eyes off of as you wait for your coffee. She’s the reason you decide to drink it at a table as close to her as you can get rather than […]

Sign up for my newsletter

You can hide your face but you are still highly exposed. Anyone can find you on those innumerable escort advertising sites, including creeps and stalkers, including your old sorority sisters, including your family. No matter what security measures you take, your ad will eventually end up in plain view of someone who should never see […]

What Martin Luther King, Nicole Kidman, Mel Gibson and I Share

Probably not much collectively except our personality type. (Really? Mel Gibson?) This is pretty much spot on for me though I am not quite as selfless and pure as this makes me sound, or as much as MLK, Mother Teresa, and Nelson Mandela, who are also INFJs, were. Find out more or about your own […]

A Different Kind of Love

You could accurately say that I fall in love easily. I am a passionate person. I fall in love with ideas (especially entrepreneurial ones!), with places (just add white sand and clear water), and people, often. There is a lot to love in this huge world of infinite varieties and possibilities after all. The people […]

Two ways to view loss

“Don’t cry because it’s over, smile because it happened.” What a fabulous little phrase coined by Dr. Suess. A shining example of the beauty and power of simplicity. Talk about two ways to see the world! Talk about attitude being everything! Recently, I found a similar quote by Khalil Gibran. Simplicity is substituted by poetics […]

What No One Talks About

I love to talk about what no one talks about, the taboo, the forbidden, the hidden. And then I usually like to do it. But in this case, I have not done it, but I have a friend who has. No, seriously, I do- a friend. In fact I have a few friends who have […]

I’m Lucky

Today I had my first meeting after a six week vacation. I was excited but not nervous as I was meeting with someone that I already knew and liked very much.  He was running late and I could tell  right away that he had rushed to get to me. I gave him a big hug […]

A personal interview

Here are answers to all of the questions I get asked most frequently. Read up and that way, when we next meet, we can skip the small talk and get right to the, ahem, dancing… Q: Do you have a boyfriend or a lover? A: Yes, you, my beloved & cherished client! I have boyfriends […]

Work is Love

“Work is love made visible.” – Khalil Gibran When you left today, I kissed you goodbye, and thanked you for spending your precious time with me. I walked you to the door with my hand on your back. My last view of you was from the side, your profile, as you turned to head to […]
