By a happy accident, I happened upon Casablanca on Turner Classic Movies this past Friday. This movie always makes me happy – the wonderful dialogue, the gorgeous black and white, the melodrama… it’s just the most stylized, and stylish, thing ever, and I just love it start to finish. You know what’s funny, though? That movie – however polished and...

Time for a secret: One of my favorite books is The Street Where I Live, by Alan Jay Lerner. It’s Lerner’s memoir of how he (in collaboration with Fritz Loewe) wrote My Fair Lady, Gigi, and Camelot (I really do love my golden age of musicals, I really do). I re-read it at least once a year. It’s beautifully written: funny, poignant, honest, and inc...

I want to talk about my house. It’s a lovely house: it’s on a golf course, with a beautiful view of the 17th green. It’s in northern Virginia, not far from Washington, D.C.

There’s a wonderful scene in “Almost Famous” in which Philip Seymour Hoffman tells the teenage aspiring writer/protagonist, “I met you.

I’m n...

Every once in a while, you read something that really blows your hair back. Few things are better than having a moment of enlightenment – having a new idea presented to you that helps you make sense of your world in a better, simpler, way. That’s what happened to me when I came across a book from the 1960s entitled The Structure of Scientific Revo...

I once read an article in the Wall Street Journal about how writing the pilot episode of a new series is usually easier than writing the second episode, which can be an excruciating process. Maybe it’s because writers use all their good material in the first attempt, and feel a bit empty for the second go-round. I hope this isn’t the case with me...

Well, it’s my first blog. Not just my first one for Frost & Sullivan – my first blog ever. As a professional writer, and professional communicator, I guess this means I’m somewhat old-fashioned. I’d rather write something longhand than type it, and I wish we’d all put the Postal Service back in business by sending each other some letters. (Remember...
