Our Father ..

On the wall in our home, there is a place for two of my favorite things…  There’s this very beautiful, framed plaque with a totally cool calligraphy-style prayer on it.    Our Father .. that’s it.   This is one of my favorite prayers.   I love  it so much for many reasons.

A Lifetime Of Memories * 9/11 forever

I lived less than 9 minutes away from the World Trade Center. For me, the WTC Plaza and the bookstore there, were some of my safe spaces, safe places, in my own city.   They were places to retreat to, to see concerts in, to enjoy ‘the city’ without venturing too far into the city. MD, Continue reading “A Lifetime Of Memories * 9/11 forever”

So, is it Tomato Time?

It’s almost time, right ?  Some plant tomatos in May, some in April.  But if you have planted them already, they do survive if you keep them indoors.   I’ve planted some seeds into small containers, indoors, and I planted them almost a month ago. (Too soon, right? ) .   They are still aliveContinue reading “So, is it Tomato Time?”

Birds and Bird Photography… there are all different kinds in this world.    Personally, I don’t do much technologically perfect photography but rather , due to circumstances beyond my control , I  focus on framing, and on the message rather than on the science of taking the pictures.  So here goes, my imperfections , however IContinue reading “Birds, Stills & Videos”
