Welcome to Yeah, That’s My Point.  A series (never-ending) of personal narratives and essays, narrative journalism and sporadic notes, a blog with a point of view.  My hope is that you find it interesting, occasionally funny, that it makes you think, or at least ponder for a moment what its all about.


Nicole Goldman

Here’s My Bio

Nicole Goldman, a tail-ender of the baby boom, lives and works in Woods Hole, MA, a small village on Cape Cod, known for its marine research institutes and the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard.

Nicole has embodied many iterations of a creative professional beginning in her hometown of New York City at Parsons School of Design, in Boston for many years marketing for the arts and running a design firm with her husband Jon Goldman, and on the Cape establishing a sustainable interior design showroom and practice.  Throughout the decades she has contributed to magazines, books and on-line journals on topics as varied as flooring materials to business management to historical research.  She has consistently been in print whether discussing her own experiences or reporting on the achievements of other artists and designers, or human interest articles on living today.


With a distinctive voice, peppered occasionally with a sarcastic tinge of NY edginess, Nicole brings a fresh perspective to the tail-ender experience from motherhood, to pursuing new creative direction, from common observation to reality checks in a complex world.  Personal narrative is a strength and Nicole has dozens of essays to share to a broad audience.  She has literally travelled around the world with her family (2001-02) and lived abroad this past year with her husband in Bali, Indonesia.  Her travels inform the context of her stories and help reveal truisms about our existence.


Passions – Art, design, cooking, nutrition, travel, tennis, reading, gardening, sewing and stitching, and good TV shows.
