    My Passion

    I love people but there is this need deep inside me to be able to remove all my clothes, snuggle under a huge blanket, grab the laptop, and write in a quiet house. My friends cannot understand this need to be alone for periods of time but I think it has something to do with the...

    Alone, So I Can Do Anything I Want If I Clean Up The Mess

         I love people.  It is great to be around them.  My friends are precious to me and I would hate to lose one.  My family is the most important thing in my life.  I couldn't imagine not having them near me.  Having said that, I...

    Master Of The Form

    THERE is no shortage of great essay writers in America. Gay Talese, Joan Didion and Tom Wolfe—all part of the “New Journalism” of the 1960s and 1970s—still write eloquently in the form. David Foster Wallace, who died in 2008, may have been more famous as a novelist but he...

    Don't Get Me Wrong

    I love my husband.  He is my sweetie.  He isn't particularly noisy but there are times when he gets cranked up and is loud.  Usually if he is fixing something in the garage and comes in and out of the house for whatever reason.  We don't have children running around and the...

    Playing The Piano

    I love to be able to just whack away on the piano, play anything I want, and not worry about people hearing me and judging my skills or lack thereof.

    Muddled Models

    BACK in October 2008, just after the investment bank Lehman Brothers collapsed, the International Monetary Fund unveiled its forecasts for growth in 2009. The IMF is the global lender to national governments; its economic pronouncements are highly respected. So what did it...

    Not A Sound

    In this busy, busy life we all live in it's extremely nice to go home to an empty, quiet house. After a hard day at work, I find it very nice to just sit and unwind. Peace and quiet, no one asking for this or that. If only for a moment, it's pure joy.

    Barton Biggs

    SORRY to hear of the death of Barton Biggs, for many years the chief strategist at Morgan Stanley. He stood out from the crowd because his notes, like those of Bill Gross, showed an awareness of a wider world than that of finance. His literary style was a cut above that of the...

    A Rarity ...

    Unfortunately I am rarely alone in my house.  Circumstances dictate that there is always someone around.  I hardly ever have the place to myself.  It's a pity because my house is quiet and solid with thick walls and detached from any other houses and families...
