Dr. Sherman's legacy of books.
"When Mars Women Date" book was inspired by single successful career women who were dating and wanted to meet a man who would support their dreams. The response inspired a website of its own. Since then there are more books and even albums.
For children and kids at heart, you can enjoy this first picture book about Shekhina, the Feminine Divine.
A picture book just for adults. Mishkan is a kabbalistic allegory for marrying the physical and spiritual world and for lifting the veil of conflict and illusion to continually rediscover love in our lives.
Since I named the publishing company for my book legacy project, ‘Parachute Jump Publishing’ I thought you might want to learn a little about the Parachute Jump in Coney Island. It’s dubbed ‘the Brooklyn Eiffel Tower’ and it’s a 262 foot structure.
The Parachute Jump was originally built for the 1939 World’s Fair in Queens and it was moved to Coney Island in 1941. It stopped operating as a ride in 1968. Riders used to be hoisted up by a cable system and dropped in a parachute for less than 20 seconds.
One couple got married on this ride. On August 25, 1940 was the wedding of Arno Rudolphi and Ann Hayward. The wedding party and band looked on from other parachutes. The couple wed, kissed and parachuted down as husband and wife!
The Parachute Jump has been seen in many feature films, starting with Mr. & Mrs. Smith in 1941 (set in the World’s Fair). It also was featured heavily in the Oscar-nominated Little Fugitive(1953). Much later it appeared in 2000′s Requiem for a Dream, 2002′s Two Weeks Notice and the 1998 Spike Lee movie He Got Game. It can also be seen on the back of Cyndi Lauper’s She’s So Unusual album.
Recently, the Parachute Jump got a 2 million dollar upgrade with 8000 LED lights and it’s reportedly so bright that it can be seen from outer space!
It is very beautiful when lit up in all its colors and now they even installed speakers so it plays music and people can dance. To me, the Parachute Jump represents the magic of Coney Island-both its history and its growth.
Have you ever stopped to remember your life, pre-cancer? In one of the books I read how a cancer survivor described her life BC and AC (denoting it as ‘before and after cancer’ instead of ‘before and after Christ’). Still, it’s important to recall better times and to remember that you are more than this [...]
Finding out your diagnosis is a very difficult because it’s the first time that you are hearing this news and you know that your life is going to radically change as a result. It’s great to have a loved one there with you in your doctor’s office to take notes. Your doctor may rattle [...]
There is a test that you can take to find out if you have the BRCHA gene. Jewish Ashkenazi women have a statistically higher chance of having this breast cancer gene. Five to ten percent of all women with breast cancer have BRCA 1 or 2 from their parents. In addition, 80% of women with [...]
When your path suddenly changes, sometimes your actions need to change too. Finding out that you have cancer is enough to drive you towards the Ben & Jerry’s and make you want to hide under the covers but when you find out you have a life threatening illness, you often want to do everything you [...]
There is no easy answer about how to tell young kids that you have cancer, or at least how to explain your hospital visits and bald head. This video answers the question about how we did this but you can consult a therapist or check out these websites below for more information. I think it’s [...]
A woman’s hair is one of her biggest assets of femininity but you can still feel beautiful and feminine, even bald. Here are some tips to get you through losing your hair. 1- Feel your feelings. Let yourself feel sad or angry about losing your hair. 2-Consider cutting your hair short first so it won’t [...]
Sometimes cancer can lead you down a spiritual path to help you discover your soul’s purpose and what is most important to you. For me this meant connecting to my Higher self and wanting to give back by leaving my messages behind in the form of books. I also learned many spiritual lessons on my [...]
When you are faced with a life threatening illness, sometimes it makes you think about the legacy you’d like to leave behind. Most of us have a legacy anyway. It’s our family, friends, kids, our clients and colleagues, creative products and the life we have lead. However, often cancer survivors want to creative something more [...]
Having a life threatening illness often makes people think about what happens after this life. It may make you question your relationship with God, explore your ideas about heaven and find new ways to connect to your Higher Self and soul’s wisdom. We can all do this with practice. People use many spiritual practices to [...]
We may not be able to control whether cancer returns or when illness can strike but in the new year we can all work on doing our best to improve our health habits. This is an ongoing project for me. Since being diagnosed with breast cancer almost a year ago, I have worked to improve [...]
Yesterday I watched Sheryl Sandberg being interviewed on Oprah’s OWN. I was excited to see that she is leading career women to follow their dreams and she’s causing quite a stir in the Feminist movement, and hopefully in industry as well. I read her book ‘Lean In‘ while I was on vacation and found that [...]
Believe it or not, if a successful woman travels for work, sometimes this can be a deal breaker in her romantic relationship, especially when she’s married. I write about this in my new book, ‘When Mars Women Date,’ looking at how many more women still relocate for men’s jobs than the other way around and how [...]
by: Paulette Kouffman Sherman Be proud of your accomplishments. The right man will support your dreams too. You can pay sometimes. You can suggest date ideas and give your opinion about things. You can look for a man who’ll do his equal share of chores and housework. You can look for a man who’ll share [...]
Unlike the past, most women today are raised to get a career and support themselves. More women than men seek out higher education. In fact, by 2018, 47% of the labor force in the US will be women (practically the same number as men). So, it is no longer assumed that men will be the [...]
Is this Something to Think About While You’re Dating? In the past men and women were thought to be from different planets. Women did more domestic and parenting work and men conquered the outside world to bring home the bacon. Today, most women work and young women are even making more money than their male [...]
In the past some men might have associated the term ‘Feminist’ with an angry woman who hates men. Today the term ‘Feminist’ hopefully brings up an image of a person (man or woman) who respects women’s rights and appreciates independent, strong women. And one study finds dating a feminist improves relationships. One study showed ‘dating [...]
In my experience as a dating coach, some men and women are still pretty traditional. Many singles are confused about gender roles when dating and some men and women are consciously departing from traditional gender stereotypes in order to create more equal romantic relationships. In the past, women were attracted to men who could protect [...]
There’s been a flurry of dating debates about whether bankers should date each other (see links below to Business Oasis, Business Insider,cnbc.com and the like). Some male bankers are saying they wouldn’t date female bankers because they’re nerds, condescending, materialistic and critical of men. Many say they’d rather date teachers or some exotic trapeze artist–anything [...]
Women have long been told by dating experts to be passive, receptive and quiet on dates. They were told not to discuss their accomplishments, not to give advice and not to take the lead in suggesting date ideas or asking a man out. The underlying premise was that opposite energies attract so a woman needs [...]
When we are in love, we don’t often think about practical things like chores and childcare. This is important for all couples but perhaps even more so for the career woman who will not do as much childcare or domestic chores as the stay at home mom. Of course there are other options like nannies [...]
