Why would I chose the title Next Year in Jerusalem! for my new novel. Why not Forbidden Romance or Romantic Travel or Spiritual Awakenings or Lust, Memories and Old Friends on Facebook? After all Natalie and Maggie are two women, both caught up in issues that many of us face: a somewhat dull but faithful husband; a bad marriage leading finally to a divorce; a desire for adventure; unsatisfied spiritual longings.

After moving in with her boyfriend Eric one year ago, following their college graduation, Emily, who is 25 years-old and working as a film editor's assistant, plopped herself down on my couch and complained of boredom.

Are you asking yourself, “Hey, if I want to be in a relationship, then why are we talking about how to be a successful single?!” The answer is that if you’re not feeling happy and fulfilled in your life right now, there’s a good chance that you’ll attract someone else who’s unhappy and dissatisfied with life, too… not a great formula for a supportive partnership!
Among the many challenges facing small business owners is the lack of an external support structure. They are like young David’s facing down the giant. However, in business, the giant can be a larger competitor, a vendor, or a desired client. In any case, identifying and executing action can be daunting. As with David, there is no alternative to taking a calculated risk. The most important thing to keep in mind is that a business decision or action is not likely to be a life-threatening event. Many of actions business owners take can be corrected if necessary.
Being in a relationship is a wonderful experience. Unfortunately, not all wonderful experiences are meant to last. In fact, more often than not when a relationship ends it is typically over faster for one person than the other.

Having the right tools, right away, is an asset in any task we undertake. In the lifelong role as parent, starting out with the right tools is great. And for all the rest of us, assimilating the best possible tools as we go in the process of parenting is a great way to do it, also. You don’t have to attend workshops or travel to weekly sessions in order to assemble your own best set of tools. The key component is learning to trust your innate abilities. Common sense often trumps expert opinion in this vocation.
Have you ever thought to yourself, 'I just can't stand dating anymore.' Are you completely fed up with going out to meet yet another potential dreamboat? If you are, then you may be suffering from Low Frustration Tolerance.
In real love you want the other person's good. In romantic love, you want the other person. ~Margaret Anderson Real love is never ownership, only stewardship of this moment's experiences. ~Karen Casey I like the quote by Margaret Anderson. However, I would add that in real love you also want your own good as well as the other person's good. When you are supporting your own and the other person's highest good, you never need to possess the other person.
