My life has been filled with loved ones, companionship, social causes and a career that has kept my mind and soul in a state overload (in a good way). Life has been filled with a hundred reasons to get up in the morning and a hundred new reasons every day. But some days, I think about what it will be like when I retire and life slows down to the point that I can do all those projects around my house, or I could simply sleep in until the sun is up. We all hope our retirement will be a time when we can travel, watch our grandkids more often and volunteer a couple of days a week to give back to society.
Hello readers I’m hoping that this month finds you in great health, great spirits and most important some great shoes!! I am actually not a big fan of March , but I must say I am happy that it is finally here and New York Fashion Week is officially over!!
Although I promised myself this year I would not get caught up in the hustle and bustle of all of the fashion shows and events, it was completely unavoidable. I battled the ice,snow and freezing cold of New York City to witness first-hand all of the hottest looks on the runway.
And the not so hot !
Somewhere in the Greater Rochester Area right now.
- A woman is selling herself on Lyell Avenue and knows no one will provide her with food, shelter, or the drugs she’s addicted to if she doesn’t earn enough money this way.
- Someone is working in a restaurant from before it opens until after it closes, every day. They believe they are paying a debt they owe to someone who helped them get into the country, but somehow the debt keeps growing, not shrinking, every week.

Life: the period of time for which we are alive
Plan: an intention or decision about what one is going to do.Continue reading
We’ve all heard the phrase, “There’s something about a man in uniform.” For those who have done nothing more than appreciate the view, there is a lot more to consider before making a decision to be a part of all the uniform entails. The two remarkable resilient women you are about to meet will tell you that being the wife of a police officer is not for the weak, self-centered, needy, clingy, insecure, or high maintenance type of woman.
The new project “MasterMind Lounge” is an innovative, connection between aspirations and dreams with a way to connect to the professionals who make a living in entertainment, music or sports etc. The networking opportunity presented here is the “baby” of none other than WHAM 1180’s radio host and attorney Robert Brenna Jr. Six years ago, this exciting venture began to take Rochester into learning about a whole new way of networking and mentoring.
In November of 2013, at the age of 33 I was rushed into the emergency room, nine weeks postpartum with extreme shortness of breath.

Welcome to my world. As a poet, painter, and pianist, my inner world is rich with lyrics, color and music. I have a vivid imagination and believe in the infinite beauty of the world around us. Although the world is certainly resplendent with magic there is a large amount of pain in our daily lives. I do not believe we are alive to merely survive. I believe we all have the exponential potential to become the very best of ourselves. I believe in the power of not only my destiny but yours as well. I believe that you have a purpose to serve on this Earth. I believe that you have something to offer that only you can. Everyday life offers me more puzzle pieces to construct this grand algorithm that is my existence. I try to inspire every life I touch to become the Divine Light they contain.Continue reading
