SMALL REMEMBRANCES

SMALL REMEMBRANCES

With the start of every new year there’s a persistent niggling in the back of my brain about how to get organized. I’m not a disorganized person, quite the contrary, I know where I’ve tucked away everything that I own. But each new year brings organizing challenges. Let me define organized for 2014. First,...

MERMAID PARADE, CONEY ISLAND 2013

MERMAID PARADE, CONEY ISLAND 2013

It’s mid-December. The weather outside today is dreary, cold and it looks like New York was saved from a major winter storm that crept across the USA heading to the East coast.

SIX HOURS EARLIER IN BARCELONA THAN IN NYC

SIX HOURS EARLIER IN BARCELONA THAN IN NYC

The flight from New York didn’t take off on time, nearly an hour late, but we arrived in Barcelona on the designated hour. It was an over-night flight and we got maybe a couple hours of sleep, though flying for seven hours certainly curdles the brain and it’s hard to figure out if it...

Well, the day is finally here. We are leaving for Spain later this afternoon. We have 8 hours before we’re scheduled to take off, I’m restless and the weather has me a bit concerned. At present a major rain storm is sitting right over NYC and is supposed to hang around until late this...

THE CITY THAT KEEPS SMILING

THE CITY THAT KEEPS SMILING

I just read on-line this morning that NYC is the most expensive city to live in on the USA Continent. There is no question about it, things are expensive in this town but somehow folks get by. Last count there were over 8 million of us living in Manhattan and its surrounding four boroughs. But...
