A Full Moon, Marianne Williamson and the Politics of Change

I missed my blog last week - it was one of those weeks, you know what I mean?  We all have them. We question where we are and if this is the right path. Let me take you back a few steps to explain. I recently got back into radio/tv as a host. Prior to this, I was working as a producer and director for years (indie films and reality TV) which contrary to popular belief is NOT that glamorous or financialy rewarding).

New Jersey Mall Shooting: I Almost Lost My Husband and Daughter Last Night

"I just want to tell you we're fine," he said in a soft voice. I could hear Becky crying in the background. At first, I thought they'd been in a car accident, but then my husband explained. "There has been a shooting at the mall. The Apple employees have us all locked up in their stock room in the back. We're totally okay, but Becky is a little freaked out." ...more
