Dr. Sue Ten Commandments
Dr. Sue Ten Commandments

Happy Passover, Easter, Spring… and whatever you celebrate!

I hope this photograph makes you think of all we have in common:

We all need something to believe in.

We all need just laws that serve the greater good.

We all need sunshine  (above the 10 commandments in the photo)

We all need generosity – open arms and open heart.

We all need to believe in Spring – symbolized by the green color of my dress and the flowers in my shawl.

We all need to feel part of a community.

When we cannot be physically close, when it’s not wise to physically touch, we can still feel close in many ways.

We can talk on the phone, we can connect on social media, we can send emails, and texts.

We can contact someone who would appreciate our reaching out.

We can give, and we can help… we can lift our own spirits – and the spirits of others.

We can forgive, we can give a kind word, a sincere compliment, and tangible gifts of money, food and supplies.

We can appreciate those who give so much more!

And no matter what you believe – we believe in you!

In case you need the gift of song and laughter, here’s my song:

Dr. Sue We're In This Together

Dr. Sue Sings “We’re In This Together” Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue sings her original song “We’re In This Together”

I created my song “We’re In This Together”

to share my belief that we are all part of one human family.

I hope my song lifts your spirit and gives you the feeling

that you are not alone, and that we all matter.

If we stand together, share resources,

and act with caring and community responsibility,

we shall overcome the COVID-19 – Coronavirus – pandemic – and future challenges (which will surely come).

We all need to stand together as one human family.

Songs can reach our minds, touch our hearts, and uplift our spirits.

Dr. Sue Make a Mask out of a Bra! Funny Positive Entertainment

“Masks probably do provide some protection.” That’s the latest news from The New York Times

NYTimes on Masks and Coronavirus:

“Masks probably do provide some protection. They’re particularly effective at keeping somebody who already has the virus from spreading it to others, and they may also make the mask’s wearer less likely to get sick.

“Coronavirus appears to mostly spread when germ-containing droplets make it into a person’s mouth, nose, or eyes,” Vox’s German Lopez explains. “If you have a physical barrier in front of your mouth and nose, that’s simply less likely to happen.”

Of course we should give first priority for masks to health-care workers. And there may be no masks available.

What can you do?  You can Make Your Own Mask!

It may not be medical grade – but it is surely better than nothing! Tie a Scarf around your Nose and Mouth! (You’ll feel like a Movie Star – The Lone Ranger! ) Or Use a Bra Cup – any size will do! Fasten with hooks and eyes, snaps or elastic – get creative. Or cut up an old shirt or pants leg! (Use your imagination, your scarf, shirt, pants…or bra!)

Fashion Forward  means NewYorkStrong!

You don’t have to live in New York to be NewYorkStrong !

What about USAStrong ? OneWorldStrong?

Dr. Sue Plastic Bag Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Health Tip Plastic Bags Gloves Positive Entertainment

Dr Sue shares Health Tips to Cope with Coronavirus No gloves? No problem!  Health Tip #1: Wear plastic bags! We all know it’s best to wear plastic gloves when we touch public surfaces. But what do you do when the stores don’t have them? Besides, gloves and masks (which are in short supply) should be reserved for health care providers and people on the front lines. What can you do? Get resourceful! Most of us have plastic bags lying around the house. Slip on the gloves when you go outside – before you touch buttons, door knobs, railings, revolving doors, money, etc. Are plastic bags as effective as surgical gloves? Do they replace social distance? Of course not. But they are certainly better than nothing. When you come home, take off your gloves and… Wash Your Hands! Health Tip #2: Don’t touch your face! Coronavirus (COVID-19) gets in through the mucous membranes. These are mainly located in the eyes, nose, and mouth – near your face. Touching your face is often an unconscious habit, so I put on a scrunchy, and tucked my hair under my cap. The cap reminds me: Don’t Touch Your Face. Health Tip #3: Self-Isolate and Social Distance I stay home most of the time and social distance when I go out. We all need to do this – for ourselves and our community. Stay Healthy – Stay NewYorkStrong !   Dr. Sue Shares Health Tip: Plastic Bags

Dr. Sue Health Tips COVID-19 Positive Entertainment

Here are Health Tips to Prevent Infection! Don’t touch your face! COVID-19, like most coronaviruses and the flu, enter the body through the mucous membranes in the eyes, nose, and mouth – all of them on the face. I realized that one of the main reasons that I touch my face is to brush away my loose hair that falls on my face. So I fastened my hair with a scrunchy and tucked it under my cap. Wearing the cap also reminds me – don’t touch my face! I’m on my solo walk in the park. I’m keeping social distance – with fresh air, sunshine, flowers,… and a curious squirrel who ran up to my feet. But I walked away. Better rude than sorry 🙂 Touching your face is an unconscious habit, and it’s easy to slip – so wash or sanitize your hands as soon as you get home – do it regularly. Cover your nose and mouth. Health Care Workers need medical-grade masks but a scarf or home-made mask offers some protection Avoid touching paper and public surfaces – that includes cash, receipts, doorknobs, railings, etc. Hydration, multivitamins and particularly zinc are helpful for body’s defense against all viruses. Use as directed. Excess of  any vitamins and minerals not recommended and could actually lower your immune response. Do not take Ibuprofen or Advil – unless truly necessary. According to some sources, these drugs make the virus much worse – with patients winding up on ventilators. This warning about Ibuprofen and Advil is disputed, but we say, why take the risk? Be mindful of early symptoms of COVID-19, which include:
  • Feeling achy or exhausted
  • unusual sniffles
  • low grade temp or flushing
  • alteration of smell or taste.
If symptoms progress to frequent coughing or Shortness of Breath, seek medical care immediately. Early diagnosis and treatment is essential to keep the morbidity and mortality low.

Dr. Sue Daffodils Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue Nature & Poetry Positive Entertainment

Hello. This is Dr. Sue (Susan Horowitz, Ph.D,) I live in Manhattan, New York, the epicenter of our current pandemic. I say “current” because, this too shall pass – especially if we take care of our health – physical and mental. It’s March, 2020, early spring – one of my favorite times of year. I’ve been spending lots of time in my apartment. I wanted fresh air and a way to connect to the beauty of nature. Social distancing is important, so I decided to go for a solo walk in a local park – no mass transportation, and no crowds. After a short walk in the park, I came across these beautiful fields of daffodils. (Please scroll down for video). These golden-trumpeted flowers reminded me of the ending lines from one of my favorite poems: “I Wandered Lonely As a Cloud” by William Wordsworth, written in the early 19th century. The last line of the poem is: “And then my heart with pleasure fills and dances with the daffodils.” Wordsworth writes about how, when he is feeling depressed,  (“in vacant or in pensive mood”),  he remembers the daffodils moving in the wind. The memory lifts his spirits and he feels pleasure as he imagines “his heart…dancing with the daffodils.” Many of us are feeling isolated and lonely and bored as we self-isolate to protect our health, and the health of our loved ones and community. This is the wise and generous thing to do. It’s easy to become depressed as the public media and worried friends share frightening statistics and stories – – and interpretations that can lead to personal despair. What can we do? We can take care of our physical health, and by now, we know what to do (social distance, hygiene, etc.) We can take care of our mental and spiritual health. We can manage and limit our exposure to negativity. We can focus on opportunities for growth and learning, on healthy routines, on hobbies, and on beauty. We can enjoy the beauty of nature – either in reality (like my solo walk), in memory (like William Wordsworth’s poem), or virtually (in videos, photographs, and text). I hope you enjoy this video of me and my daffodils! Dr. Sue Shares Uplifting Poem About Daffodils

Dr. Sue Cremini's Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue: Cremini’s Restaurant Positive Entertainment

 

Cremini’s Restaurant a “delizioso” (the Italian word for “delicious”) taste of Italy in Brooklyn, New York.

What is a “cremini”? A sweet dessert that combines perfectly with the salty taste of an “Ascolana” (stuffed) olive.

Cremini’s Restaurant invites you to sample varieties of both (with and without meat).

Ascolana olives and cremini’s come from Le Marche region on the east coast of Italy on the Adriatic Sea.

Le Marche is also famous for “crescia” – Italian flatbread – hand-made into appetizing sandwiches and a fettucini pasta (molded into a mound).

Italian “cucina” (cuisine) is best washed down with wine. So sample some favorites from the vineyards of Le Marche: “Passeria Brut” – a sparkling white wine that is a richer version of Prosecco.

 

Or try the “Lacrima” red wine. “Lacrima” means “tears” in Italian – which is close to Latin.

(To my surprise, I was able to remember “lacrima” from my high school Latin class – when we read “The Iliad” in Latin.

As my students once reminded me “Nothing you learn is ever a waste!”)

It’s so true – culture, language, and variety of accents enrich our enjoyment of wine and food – and vice versa.

I hope my blog opens the door to appreciate the rich variety of cultures and wines – wherever you live.

Care to try a little Italian? Can you say “Mi piace” (“I like it”)? Or enjoy my original, multi-lingual song “Te Amo/Ti Amo (I Love You)” which begins: “I only meant to share some wine….”

You can explore the joys of local wines and vineyards when you Discover Upstate New York https://www.discoverupstateny.com/dine-stay/wineries-vineyards/

Here’s my video with Riccardo, who co-owns Cremini’s with his wife and chef Elena.

Dr. Sue Slow Wine Eataly Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue: Slow Wine Tour @Eataly Positive Entertainment

Slow Wine – like Slow Food – and Eataly Food Emporium and Restaurant are celebrations of delicious, natural wines and foods.

Rooted in Mediterranean tradition, Slow Wine has branched out to become an international phenomenon, with vineyards in Italy, and now, in California, Oregon, and New York – plus recipes, books, restaurants… and more!

Now you can sample “delizioso” (the Italian word for “delicious”) wine and foods and take a Slow Wine Tour of the US: https://www.slowwineusa.com/us-tour

 

You can explore the joys of local wines and vineyards when you Discover Upstate New York https://www.discoverupstateny.com/dine-stay/wineries-vineyards/

Taking time and care in cultivation of the best quality grapes and the fermentation process, and combining wine with wholesome, natural foods is for all seekers of a slower, healthier, and more satisfying life.

How fabulously fitting that Eataly – Eataly.com – based in Italy, and now an expanding series of world-wide outposts of Italian foods should host the tenth anniversary of the Slow Wine Tour of Italian (and Italian-inspired) wines.

Wine, Food, and Music are the food of love and friendship. I love to sing my own, original, multi-lingual song “Te Amo/Ti Amo (I Love You)” which begins: “I only meant to share some wine….”

Here is my interview with Giancarlo Gariglio, wine expert and author of “Slow Wine: A Year in the Life of Slow Wine.”

If you listen carefully, you’ll hear me try a little Italian. Can you say “Mi piace” (“I like it”)?

Dr. Sue Dance Flurry Positive Entertainment

Dr. Sue: Dance Flurry 2020 Positive Entertainment

Dance Flurry is a trip around the dance floor – and the world! Every February, Dance Flurry defies the winter cold of Upstate New York, by hosting an annual (indoor) celebration of live music and dance in Saratoga Springs, New York! You can test your terpsichordian* talents with multi-cultural dances *”Terpsichordian” is the Greek-origin word for dance. But you don’t have to spell it – dancing is for doers! 🙂 The ballrooms at the Saratoga City Center and Hilton are filled with enthusiastic contra dancers – inter-generational, gender-flexible, multi-cultural, beginners, experts, and everything in-between – plus live bands! Contra dance partners pass up and down long lines interacting with other couples. The music – echoed by the swirling, stamping  crowd – is an energetic Americanized version of English country dancing, Irish jigs, reels, techno, etc. Other ballrooms and and workshops invite you to be a “hep cat” with swing music from the 1930’s or 1940’s with top bands like Jay Ungar and Molly Mason http://jayandmolly.com/  (I love swing – in fact, I wrote a swing song “Everybody Goes Wow!” for my original musical “SssWitch” SssWitch.net ) You can fall in love – or find a friend of any gender – to a tender waltz like “Ashokan Farewell” by Jay Ungar, the sound track to the famous Ken Burns PBS series on The Civil War. Live out your Latin dreams on interactive dance-music tours to Cuba or Dominican Republic with metamovements.com Or let your hips sway to a Latin rhythms by The Ladybugs in local ballrooms. You can work your body to a Hip-Hop beat with choreographers Ray F. Davis and Carla Giudcelli. I was having so much fun in the hip-hop workshop, I didn’t even know it was hip-hop! (which turns out to be a huge umbrella that can include people of all ages and backgrounds) You can enjoy the haunting spirituality of Native American flute music and hear the Algonquin language spoken by the indigenous people of upstate New York (and beyond). You can open your ears and mind to middle-Eastern music, complex rhythms and culture with Karim Nagy. You can enjoy a concert of Argentinian tangoes with the authentic orchestra of of pedroguirado.com  The instruments include the bandonion – a uniquely complex version of an accordian. You will be amazed by the inventive sounds of a tango violin, piano, and bass (played by band leader Pedro Guirado). But beware – it’s easy to fall in passionate love to this music. In fact, I wrote a song called “Blame It On the Tango.” (My lyrics rhyme “gaucho love” with “couch ‘o love”) Looking foward to more events from DanceFlurry.com  Hope we can share a dance! Thanks to Journalist Carla Marie Rupp for photo!
