Summer: The Donna Summer Musical

With my daughter Zsia outside the theater

Saturday April 28, 2018

Today the city came alive on a long awaited picture perfect spring day. Summer: The Donna Summer Musical was amazing. Zsia, her husband, Jon and I sat in Row A - dancing and singing with the very talented cast. Donna's disco songs at the end featured huge disco balls - both on and off stage - with shiny confetti that fell from the top of the theatre covering everyone. It took me back to my disco days when John Travolta filmed "Saturday Night Fever" here in Bay Ridge. The show was about the life of Disco Queen Donna Summer. Along the way the show touched on lower wages for women verses men (applause from the audience) and one or two other social issues of the day. As with most performances "Summer" was about someone overcoming their issues and achieving greatness in their lives.

Bill Cosby Sexual Assault Case: For the #MeToo movement, it was a watershed moment. Dozens of women have accused Bill Cosby, 80, of violating them; now, he's been convicted of sexual assault and is out on $1-million bail while he awaits sentencing. The verdict from a Pennsylvania jury was also the most severe blow in a years-long fall from grace for a comedian who had broken racial boundaries and become America's favorite dad on TV. As Cosby left the courthouse, some onlookers yelled, Burn in hell! or Rot in jail! while others shouted, We love you, brother!

Golden State Killer: To his neighbors, he was a grumpy old man known for his meticulously manicured lawn - and his loud cursing - in a Sacramento suburb. To authorities, Joseph James DeAngelo Jr., 72, is the prime suspect in at least 46 rapes and 12 homicides from the 1970s and '80s perpetrated by the Golden State Killer. Yet little in his life story would suggest the sadism of those acts. So how did investigators find him? By linking DNA evidence from the slayings to genetic information contained on a consumer genealogy website.

Spring Relationships

This time of the year clients come with stories about broken relationships and what they have learned from them. Whether you're swiping an app or going places to meet someone romantically, are you fully understanding your intent and your psychological basis for getting there? Too many people claim to want a relationship and don't have time nor programming to do so. Others simply have had too many bad experiences. Relations begun in the romantic spring often end in the fall. If you understand that, you and your partner can have lots of fun. There's an age-old proverb that keeps us grounded in hope ... When one door closes, another opens. But ... will the new person be about more learning lessons in relationships or show you that you have moved past programmed issues? Are you feeling less like you belong here lately? Ready to go beyond? It would seem that everyone has become a therapist for themselves and others but what they don't often get is ... these are emotional programmed adventures along the way in linear time.
