My New Favorite Thing

Awhile back, I read an article in the New York Times Magazine section about Freedom - an application that disables networking on an Apple computer for up to 8 hours at a time. Since then, it is my new best friend for writing. I punch in how long I will write - usually 120-150 minutes - and I'm off. Offline and off to writing. it is heaven. if the perpetual pull of email or "research" on the web is too powerful for you, too, check it out. I happily sent in my 10 dollar donation for it.

my life for the past month

My husband, Dan Fried, moved his photography studio, H & H Photographers, to the beautiful and historic Stanford White building on the Hudson in Irvington, New York. I handled the design, renovation, decorating, and settling in of the space, so from Thanksgiving until this past Sunday, my life was all about that, other than my two sons who each had birthdays. A busy time! but it is done, and now I get to look forward to the party! if you're in Westchester on Feb 10th - come!
