Making sure you keep your resolutions this year I know what you’re thinking. Here comes another new year, and there are those things you don’t like about yourself or your life (and who wants to think about that!). And as sure as winter brings cold and snow to me up here in Boston, you probably feel a determination bubble up within you to change things. “This will be the year…” And like lots of us you feel on the verge yet again to make a New Year’s Resolution.

Gifts for yourself and loved ones that will mean everything
Well, here they are, the holidays and a new year rushing headlong at us, and here’s how some of us feel. Some of us just want to dull the pain of worry, stress, and struggle.

This wonderful interview was quite an honor
We felt incredibly pleased and honored when Five Books asked us to be interviewed for their website. In case you’re not familiar, as Five Books puts it, “Every day an eminent writer, thinker, commentator, politician, academic chooses five books on their specialist subject. From Einstein to Keynes, Iraq to the Andes, Communism to Empire. Share in the knowledge and buy the books.” Oh, and you’re not allowed to talk about your own books!
Our interview was just put up. The ideas we talk about are really important, and not many people know about them. Here’s the link. Then please get back to us with your thoughts on this. This is all about how relationships really work. Love to hear from you!

Check it out in the New York Times and in the Daily Beast. Of course you’ve always known there’s nothing wrong with you, but the nobodies you’re surrounded with didn’t know that.

Privacy issues: Can you get too close?
A developing relationship is a series of moments. The first kiss. The first time you make love. Your first weekend away together. And, nowadays, the moment when you wonder about sharing passwords. Passwords are the bra clasps of online intimacy. Each one you undo brings you closer. The question is, how close do you want to go? (more…)
