the struggle

I just returned from visiting my daughter. She is a student at NYU and this is her spring break week. She invited me a while back, asking if we could stay in Brooklyn. She wanted to get away from her usual area and explore / relax a bit. I agreed it was a good idea, … More the struggle

Written for the most part Saturday morning. Photos/videos added after the fact. Today I plan to escape. Not forever. Not even for a day. Just hours. Driving and listening to whatever I choose to listen to. Yes, I created a playlist. And you wouldn’t like it. Oh, some of you would. But I won’t name … More middle

passageways

There are weeks which are unique. I’m labeling this past one a passageway week. I’m a fan of Narnia. As in the book series written by CS Lewis. How there are passageways into another realm.

An opportunity to hear my son play his guitar and his girlfriend sing. So I took advantage, as this is a rarity. A church … More here to hear

Dressed in an odd assortment of non-matching attire, including my Dodgers cap, I left my house today to run errands. Post office followed by YMCA. Meaning I needed to wear gym clothes. I decided to take some photos at a spot I remember being quite scenic last year, as related to this particular season. So … More journey

thoughts on the week

I wrote this on Sunday. Just got around to posting today… This past week was a week. As in rather trying. Emotions and words and faces. Joys. Hopes. Memories. Voices. Smiles. Hugs. Thank yous. I’m sorries. I got up Wednesday morning feeling physically worse than I have in a long, long time. Headache. Emotionally drained. … More thoughts on the week
