Time to be Influencable


The Time 100 fascinates me every year. It's a picture in time of 100 people who truly influenced our world and in some way affected the way we lived.

I like everything about this list from the inspiring categories: heroes, thinkers, leaders, artists to its International reach.

But also because they are not all famous. Of course, you'll see the obvious…

The Man's Guide to Love

There's nothing better that a man that makes you laugh!

Multiply that by 60 and you can just imagine what a day I had thanks to new website : The Man's Guide to Love.

The website features each day a short video of men from all over the country who were asked:

“If you had one piece of advice that you’d give another man about love, what would it be?

The answers are are hilarious as they are…

American Ideal

I love picking up the Financial Times on week-ends. It adds a brainiac touch that would never happen with a copy of Vogue, and it gives a little dose of the too common yet awfully efficient sexy-librarian stereotype when you add a pair of glasses to the picture.

There was a fascinating article by…

KI JAN POU’N GERI? (How Do We Heal?) - A Performance Benefit Remembering Haiti

We, the members of the Caribbean Association for Females in

Entertainment (CAFÉ ), believe that our success and impact in the

entertainment industry and our Caribbean community depends on our unity

– as women, as artists, as visionaries. The recent tragic natural

disaster in Haiti has reminded us how profoundly connected we are as

Caribbean descendants and global citizens.

So on MAY 17, 2010, we will present the première performance of:

Pardon my French By Michael Kimmelman (New York Times)

Eric Zemour, slight, dark, a live wire, fell over his own words, they

were tumbling out so fast. He was fidgeting at the back of a half-empty

cafe one recent evening near the offices of Le Figaro, the newspaper

where he works, notwithstanding that detractors have lately tried to get

him fired for his most recent inflammatory remarks about French blacks

and Arabs on a television show. Mr. Zemmour, roughly speaking, is the… Continue

Afternoon Delight

I had a lovely talk on a sun-drenched bench in Central Park with a dear friend this afternoon. Our discussion eventually came to the journey it takes to find one's own voice and nurture it despite the

obstacles - more often inner than outer !

So I smiled when I saw that the poem Maria Shriver chose to read for the Women's conference in celebration of Poetry Month: The…
