Where’s the Building?

October 17, 2021 So, where is the building, I keep wondering? I thought, maybe they had a setback financially or something related to permits that has slowed their plans. Oh well, I’m sure sooner or later, it will be built. This morning as I rounded the corner and took a quick peek above the metalContinue reading “Where’s the Building?”

documentary

October 6, 2021 I am into watching documentaries these days…on important people and events that have occurred both in the distant and recent past. Some recent ones are: Jamal Khashoggi’s death, the American Civil War, the Underground Railroad, Jeff Bezos.

Who do you imitate?

September 29, 2021 I imitate others more than I’d like to think, not as in mimicking but more as in reproducing what I see. I suspect that is true for many of us, whether a positive or negative reproduction in our lives. For example, last week I was at a weekend outdoor market. I sawContinue reading “Who do you imitate?”

How about that Bentley

9/15/2021 I am not into cars, per se, or consider myself obsessed with or constantly in pursuit of material things. I’m content with the basics and do not need to have the latest model of anything. You will not find lots of shoes or clothes in my closet, but when I shop, I consider myselfContinue reading “How about that Bentley”

A Whisper

September 8, 2021 Our day begins early every morning when Bustey vocalizes this cute sound informing me that it is time for me to rise and shine because he has potty needs.

Caterpillar to a Butterfly

August 29, 2021 As we walked along a nearby street in our neighborhood, the familiar face of a homeowner, Tara, whose assortment of flowering plants I have long admired, stopped me with a sort of urgent question, “Do you like butterflies?!!” I replied, “Yes!! Of course I do!!” She replied, “Come here and see themContinue reading “Caterpillar to a Butterfly”

Flatbush Ave to B. Altman’s

August 11, 2021 Living in Brooklyn, New York, during my teenage years (1980s), I experienced my share of teenage invincibility. I also felt that anything I aspired for was attainable, probably because of the upbringing of my parents. I was surrounded by endless skyscrapers and crowds of people everywhere I went, who walked fast andContinue reading “Flatbush Ave to B. Altman’s”

Planning for Success

8/4/2021 “It’s ah good ting Bustey went outside before it rained,” commented my Mom this morning, as the rained began pouring down while we prepared our breakfast. “Actually Mom, I saw that it will rain most of the day, so I took him out before it started, I planned it Ma.” A few minutes later,Continue reading “Planning for Success”
