For those who need to know its “Gonna Be Alright”

Have you ever had such a bad day where you just needed to hear that everything was gonna to be alright?

Lyrics like these can be life saving:

I think the only thing that’s keeping me alive
Is a good cup of coffee, and “Songs In The Key of Life”,
but I know…
Hey hey hey
Everything’s gonna be alright
Everything’s gonna be alright
It’s all right
Hey hey hey
Everything’s gonna be alright
Everything’s gonna be alright
It’s all right…….
                                                         And I’m thinkin’
I take it all too seriously
It may be easier than it seems
Maybe I’m the one who makes it hard
That’s all well and good but that doesn’t fix my car
And it doesn’t keep the lights on when I’m eating in the dark
but I know….
I think the only thing that’s keeping me alive
Is knowing that it works out
It just takes a little time, but I know…
Don’t you worry ‘bout a thing
Don’t you worry ‘bout a thing

Recently I found this inspiration and it all comes from one Levi Kreis. Tony Award Winner Levi Kreis and his music have forever changed my life.  There are almost no words to describe what I have learned and received. It has been such a gift.

I first became aware of Levi while watching the 2010 Tony awards. The play was Million Dollar Quartet and it was that performance that made me go see the show initially and then 5 more times.  While the entire cast is incredible (more about that in another blog), Levi’s portrayal as Jerry Lee Lewis and overall talent was just palpable. It was then I checked him out as a musician and had to own all of his 3 albums. As a New Yorker the music I grew up listening to wasn’t anything like this. But this voice, soul, and incredible lyrics made me at times kind of obsessive.  The talent and charisma of this performer both on the stage and off is remarkable. There is no way for you to be around him and his music and not feel moved.

Levi has an incredibly loyal fan base and is so beloved in fact that his fans have already contributed well over $25,000 in support of his 4th album. A website called kickstarter allows artists and their fans to make music and support art they love without having to rely on record labels and middle men. I have no doubt that this artist’s career is about to take off even further. His message is too important and infectious to be stopped.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check Levi and his music out at:

For Find Out Friday - Why Do Emery Boards Make My Skin Crawl?

You know that sound a fingernail makes when it scratches against a chalkboard?  You know that feeling the sound of that action gives you? I, like most people, hate that sound.  I instantly feel like scrunching my shoulders up to my neck and closing my eyes.  I feel the exact same way when I am using an emery board to file my nails. This annoying sensation has a name: “grima” which is Spanish for disgust or uneasiness. This term basically describes any feeling of being displeased, annoyed, or dissatisfied someone or something.  It is a feeling that psychologists are starting to pay more attention to as it relates to our other emotions.  Emery boards are traditionally made with cardboard that has small grains of sand adhered to them. It is the sandpaper that I believe makes me filled with grima.  According to studies that are being done around the world, it is not just the feeling that we associate with certain things like nails on a chalkboard or by using emery boards

For My Madness During Migraine Awareness Month

Last weekend as I sat staring at the blank page in front of me, I was still surprised and elated that I had an entire day to myself and unlike past experiences it was filled with what I wanted when I wanted it. There were a few rough moments but when I consider the previous twelve hours (and the days to come) have been better than the last week. Especially this last week even though I had braced myself ahead of time, I just didn’t know I should have braced for a more serious episode. I am a chronic migraine sufferer for so many years I don’t quite remember when they started exactly which is ironic because I can remember every special event they have ruined. I remember plays or dinners I was at where I don’t remember what happened but I could tell you what I felt minute by minute. It amazing how the mind works, especially when it’s operated by a migraine brain. In the last few years, specifically the last few years since I have been going to the Montefiore Headac

For Find Out Friday - Why is One Foot More Ticklish Than the Other?

As I sit here typing I can’t seem to stop thinking about my nails. Mainly that they REALLY need to get done. They are starting to chip and become unruly. As soon I as think about making an appointment my mind immediately returns to this question: “which of my feet will be ticklish this time?” Because I am a girl that needs her fingernails and toenails to match, I always get a pedicure whenever I get my nails done. And while this should be an activity I enjoy, it often feels like a chore, despite my going only once every three to four weeks. I know; #firstworldproblems.  Anyway, each and every time I get my toes done, as soon as they are done soaking in the bubbly water I wonder, which of my feet will be ticklish today?  Without fail one of them always seems to get the brunt of it and suddenly what was supposed to be a relaxing activity has made me all tense. So, is there a scientific reason for this?  According to most research, yes. While the answer doesn’t
