Hey! Ho! Let’s Go! Sometimes I’m on stage sharing my essays as part of the “Living Out Loud” reading series. This time I opened for Donna Gaines, author of “Why the Ramones Matter,” performing a couple of Ramones songs, ukulele-style.

It’s planning time again. As I look ahead to the New Year I also want to take a step back to express my gratitude for the wisdom, support and referrals I’ve received this year. I’ve written about minimalist architecture, kitchen design, mops, wine estates, cool new apps, baby strollers, lab testing, investments, the glaciers of Chile, Martin Luther King’s struggles and George Washington’s dentures. Heartfelt thanks to my clients, colleagues and sources for making the collaboration process the very best part of my job.

Every December I put together a list of business goals for the new year. At the top of my list for 2009 was creating a professional writers group, which could serve as the kind of sounding board, advisory board, cheerleading section and, sometimes, chorus of commiserators that solopreneurs need. Here we are (well, most of us), ten years on. The expertise and generosity of these women continue to amaze me.

Wrapped up a great week of research, on and off the Potomac River, for my next tour scripts of the Washington, D.C. area.

“11 Great Tours to Take in New York City This Holiday Season” includes the Radio City Stage Door Tour that I wrote. If you haven’t been, Radio City Music Hall is a magical place.

I love conducting business with companies that do great work and do good works. That’s what I strive for, too. Here’s a carload of donated gifts, party decorations and a fabulous homemade Spider-Man cake (not baked by me) I delivered on my lunch break to a little boy who is celebrating his special day in a homeless shelter. Birthday Wishes of Long Island is the wonderful organization that makes this possible.

Another successful collaboration with Indigo Productions on a script for the mobile app GetYourHealthRecord.com and another happy client: “It looks fantastic!”

Happy to be attending the kick-off of Jodi Picoult’s new book tour and hoping some of her magic dust will rub off on me.

When work and life intersect: A few years back I wrote the ‘All Access’ behind-the-scenes tour script for Madison Square Garden after its top-to-bottom renovation. Now every time I attend a show, like Paul Simon’s farewell concert, I get an extra thrill knowing the history, secrets and stories of “The World’s Most Famous Arena.”
