Love Must Prevail

My grandsons, BZ and YY came to visit me yesterday. The first thing that came out of the 3 year old, YY’s mouth was pure, unadulterated confidence and passion. “Omi, guess what?” he said to me with a huge smile. “I put on my bathing suit all by myself, and then I took off all my clothes all by myself too!” He raised his hands in the air, in excitement, and I exclaimed. “Wowee! I’m so proud of you…” My daughter-in-law and I exchanged smirks about the switching around of the order of undressing to dressing. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email

Orthopedic Comparisons

Nowadays, my friends and I talk about orthopedic ailments. Now I admit that my own not-so-recent ankle break, and subsequent surgeries makes this topic of particular interest to me. But I’ve since notice that others are fascinated with these issues. That is, everyone seems to have a story about their foot or someone else’s foot, heel, ankle, hand, tendons, ligaments, cartilage, arm, femur, wrist or shoulder having been dislocated, broken, fractured, bruised, sprained or torn.

Well, folks, it’s finally here!  After two years of posting on my Bubby Blog, updating it every now and then, and giving it some fresh looks, new photos, and interesting items in the sidebar… I decided to take the plunge and give my blog a new facelift. I had visions for the new site. At the same time, I was sad to see my old one go, because I had put so much effort the past few years in figuring stuff out, and making it all work. So, my new look was a long time coming. And I hired Javier, the webmaster to do his magic. We went back and forth in emails and drafts for many weeks. And finally, it was done. In case there are still kinks over the next few days or so, please bear with me, as I iron them out myself, or holler to Javier to fix them for me! I hope you all will … Continue reading

Q and A about Music Therapy


I was asked to share about my profession of Music Therapy. And so, without further ado, here are the questions followed by my responses: Hope you enjoy! 1. To start, could you tell us a little about yourself? What’s your backstory? I am originally from New York, and moved to Los Angeles about 34 years ago. I always loved music, rhyming, composing lyrics, singing and playing piano. More recently, I studied harp and play that instrument as well for my current clients and patients. I hold a B.A. in music, and a M.A. in Special Education. I’ve worked as a music therapist with children who have developmental disabilities, as well as patients in hospice care. 2. In layman’s terms, what is a music therapist? A music therapist is a trained professional who uses music for non-music purposes for clients and patients. Music is the tool that helps the therapist reach the patient. The music combined with the personality of the … Continue reading

Another Kids’ Book Review: “Look What My Parents Give Me!”

Look What My Parents Give Me

  I don’t know about your mom, but every time Mother’s Day rolled around, my mother would say, “Every day  is Mother’s Day.”  As children, we were taught from very early on to honor our father and mother. Doesn’t the Torah (Bible)  teach us that we should respect  our parents all the time? Yes, it does. But respect and honor don’t always translate into appreciation. Nowadays, children and teenagers seem to have a sense of entitlement, feeling that adults owe them. We are living in the Me Generation, and it’s never too early to educate kids on the important value of appreciation for their parents. Share PostTwitterFacebookGoogle +1Email
