Letter From New York 03 29 16 Some advice, please, from you…

It is Tuesday afternoon, late; my version of “God’s Little Acre” is bathed in golden sunlight with the temp in the 40’s.

How that really feels like, I haven’t a clue.  Prepping for the Easter brunch took it all out of me, I’m afraid. 

I slept most of Monday, drifting off at 5:00 last evening and waking at 8:00 this morning.  My meetings out of the house were all, thankfully, moved to other days and I rested, doing conference calls from the warmth of my bed and my terry cloth bathrobe.

As that saying goes, I guess I’m not as young as I used to be…

It’s not bad and I’m not upset about it; it is just that I have to learn what my new limits are at this age.  I can’t go almost straight for 72 hours and not feel some serious consequences.

Everyone has told me it was a great success and I’m glad.  Sally Brodsky did a yeoman’s job of helping me even though she was under the weather.  There would have been no clean-up if it weren’t for Katerina.  Thanks to April, also, and a couple of others whose names have flitted out of my head.

Going to Christ Church with Lionel and Pierre started giving me a sense of community and after they left, I have continued going, making some new friends along the way.

Not so long ago, I did a call with Louise Rosen who has worked in television as long as me and has been doing that and producing the Maine Jewish Film Festival the last four years.  We, of course, talked about the changes in the business and the differences of living in Maine and Columbia County and that of living in New York City or Boston or DC.

“It’s nice sometimes to be a bit removed from the chaos,” she said and I agreed.

On Friday, I am moderating a panel on “How To Build A Better Blog” for the Religious Communicators Conference and as I was prepping for my call and scouring the Internet for some topics to throw at my panel, successful bloggers all, I was wondering what I might do to improve my blog?

I find that I am in the group who blogs to give their voice a platform but perhaps there is more that I should be doing. 

Do any of you have ideas?  Let me know what I can do to make this better, to resonate more for you.  I do it because I enjoy it and am glad that there are folks out there who read it and sometimes comment.

But seriously, what can I do to be better?

P.S.   RIP, Patty Duke, aka Anna Pearce
