I’M STILL UNDER DEVELOPMENT – Marilyn Armstrong

One of the many things I learned while working for a living was "never let them know how good you really are." It sounds like a joke, but it isn't. Moreover, I've always been more fond of family and friends than my work, except for the year I ran a newspaper in Israel. I totally … Continue reading I’M STILL UNDER DEVELOPMENT – Marilyn Armstrong

“LES MISERABLE” VERSUS “LESS MISERABLE” — Marilyn Armstrong

"Les Miserables" is coming to Boston. I know this because the advertisement for it is on TV every few minutes. I read the book originally in French, back when I could actually read French and sort of mumble in French if forced. I never spoke the language well, but I could read surprisingly well. However, … Continue reading “LES MISERABLE” VERSUS “LESS MISERABLE” — Marilyn Armstrong

Yet we hide the good, even from ourselves, behind a socially acceptable modesty while brandishing our flaws and frailties … Continue reading SHINING AGAIN – Marilyn Armstrong

Every time the idea popped into my brain, that little niggling idea that "bosses get paid better" (which isn't necessarily true in every profession, by the way), I shuddered. … Continue reading AMBITION AND THE LACK THEREOF – Marilyn Armstrong

REAL REPORTERS – Garry Armstrong

Word Prompt: Credibility It's never been a one-man show. I logged more than 40-years in TV and radio news,  including 31 years at one Boston TV Station.  I'm always flattered when people say they remember me and my work. The body of work is considerable. Usually 3 or 4 daily newscasts, 5 to 6 days … Continue reading REAL REPORTERS – Garry Armstrong

WORK AND LIFE BALANCE: THE RIGHT TO DISCONNECT – BY ELLIN CURLEY

I have been interested in the balance between work life and personal life since the days of my first husband’s 60 plus hour work weeks at his New York City law firm. Working so much wreaked havoc with our home life and left me, effectively, a single parent most of the time. The issue has … Continue reading WORK AND LIFE BALANCE: THE RIGHT TO DISCONNECT – BY ELLIN CURLEY
