Betsy Buchalter Adler and This I Believe

essayist Betsy Buchalter Adler and OllieEach week, we’ll hear a new This I Believe essay - this time from Betsy Buchalter Adler. When she gets too absorbed by her legal work, her dog, Ollie, reminds her of what’s truly important:  a good, long walk outdoors.  Adler believes Ollie helps her live in the moment and embrace the small, unexpected delights in the world. Adler is a writer, a birder, a philanthropic adviser, and a lawyer for nonprofit organizations and their donors.  She lives with her husband of 42 years and their dog, Ollie, a short-haired collie, in northern California and Manhattan.  Adler’s essay is featured in the book, This I Believe: Life Lessons.
