Hello there!

Welcome to my little corner of the ether. This is where you will find information about my books and musings on life and love in New York City. To stay in the loop about all things ADR...


The moment I first conceived of this crazy plan to go without alcohol for an entire calendar year, I knew something. I knew that for better or worse, I'd replace wine with something. What I wondered was what that something would be. I am still figuring out what that something is. A concern, a logical concern, is that I will replace wine with food, that I will eat more to make up for the fact that I am not sipping. I think this is something to be careful about because I already feel myself nibbling and snacking more. Hopefully, I can figure out a way to curb the impulse to fill the void with food.

What's good though is that I think I have stumbled upon two things, two really positive things, that are going to help me through this year: words and workouts. It is not a coincidence that I have written more of my novel in the last couple weeks than I have in the last six months. It is not a coincidence that I am feeling optimistic and fired up about this plan recently and I have been working out a ton. Sweating might just be better for addressing anxiety than sipping.

Maybe, just maybe, 2012 will be the year of many words and many workouts. Sounds good to me.
