Whenever there is a long weekend approaching, seemingly inevitably, someone will ask the question: So! Do you have any plans for the weekend? Generally, I don’t. I live in that solitude which is painful in youth, but delicious in the years of maturity. ~ Albert Einstein The other day, Vanessa asked me: Do you ever get bored? I thought about it for a moment and said: Not really. It happens every once in a while, but fortunately, those times are…

I don’t know any of the people in these photos, but I see them almost every day. I’ve not introduced myself, but I have spoken and said hello to them along the way when we pass on the street. Two of the three have acknowledged the hello and have responded in kind. The other, well she never responded, so I just stopped saying hello. When I moved to my house a little more than 4 years ago, I found myself…

I don’t know if I’d call this blog a “rose”, but the saying seem to fit. A rose by any other name would still smell sweet ~William Shakespeare I’ve been writing this blog for quite a while. It started with an idea to write about photography, exclusively. Well, that practically never happened. I found myself straying off-topic frequently, more off-topic than on, talking about whatever. If you’ve been around for a while, you know what I’m talking about. 😀 I…

As I get older, read more, understand more, I keep coming around to this word, gratitude. During a recent conversation with my Spanish teacher, Vidal, I was sharing pictures of Central Park with him. He enjoyed the scenes and said, wistfully, that he wished that there was something near him where he could go, lie in the park, take his shoes off and sleep, like the man pictured here. There, in Guatemala, it’s just not safe. As a minimum, he…

When I wake up in the morning, I usually have a gander at my phone to see what the weather is like if there is any chance of rain within the next hour or two. This particular morning was no different. I got up, got dressed, and headed out the door. When I stepped off of the stoop, I felt a few raindrops on my head. I looked up at the sky and saw some ominous clouds moving in from…

“You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.” William W. Purkey I like the significance of the quote. To me it signifies being uninhibited, enjoying the moment, being yourself in totality. Living like it’s your only shot, because, for all that we know, it may be. Being. Thanks to a suggestion by Vanessa, I visited Washington Square Park. Located right in front of…
