What is poise? The dictionary says it’s a “graceful and elegant bearing in a person” or “a dignified, self-confident manner of being”. I’m always drawn to people with poise and I really love that it defies age, gender, body type and more. Poise is so subtle, yet it’s what makes someone truly attractive.

Like the rest of the world, I was mesmerized by the Jamaican Olympic track star, Usain Bolt. He’s so tall, so lean and so fast! It was thrilling to watch him win so many gold metals and to witness new world records. There were three things Bolt did before every race that really got my attention.
The gate was open. A bunny hopped by. Roxy’s instincts took over as she darted after the rabbit, into the street. Simultaneously, a red pickup was moving through. Boom. Little Roxy squelched. The truck screeched. I went into emergency mode. I scooped up my dog, bloodied and limp, and ran her into my house. It was afterhours and the vet was closed.
I have lived through three kitchen renovations! (I’ve moved quite a bit as an adult.) My first grown-up kitchen had two sinks, a wine refrigerator and a rotisserie oven (with buttons and settings I never understood!). The second kitchen was 500 square feet with a walk-in pantry and an island bigger than most New York City apartments.
