Tuesdays with MOJO / Become One with your Inner Sea Hag

breathe, motivation, relationshipMarjorie Spitz Rento2 Comments

I think I was an old Montauk sea hag in a previous life.  Not a super ugly mean one with moles on her face, but a quiet, hard to know, lonely soulful kind who served beer at The Dock until her death while waiting patiently for her long lost fisherman to come home. 

My husband calls me his mermaid, so maybe there’s some truth to that. 

All I know is when I hit the Napeague Stretch (the narrow remote highway which connects the rest of Long Island to Montauk), I feel like I’m at the end of the world and I’ve always belonged there.   Like I can breathe for the first time.  And when I go to The Dock, a restaurant run by the same family for over 30 years, where the taxidermy prevalent and off-color jokes not for the weary, it fits like an old glove. 

Tuesdays with MOJO / Elect for you today

motivation, foodMarjorie Spitz RentoComment

Today is Election Day. A day when people all over the country will vote to choose their governors, congress people and decide on proposals, among other things.

It started me thinking about what kinds of choices we make every day.   Consciously or subconsciously, we make hundreds of “elections” a day, and these comprise who we are:  What we wear, do, eat, and drink.  Who we call, email or spend time with. What projects we tackle, and which we set aside.
