Thanksgiving: A Break Down

I hope everyone had a wonderful, fun, safe Thanksgiving and–for those who celebrate–beginning of Hanukkah. The holiday was kicked off and extended by meeting up and hanging out with two close friends:  John and Kaitlin.  John is a buddy of mine from high school, and he’ll probably be running The New York Times one day.  This is always stated, but…

Cold Coffee

[Yesterday…] Waking up to this morning was a black-and-white photograph, but the filter displayed the slightest color in just a certain spot.  Kind of like this: Blame it on the cold temperature.  Blame it on the snow upon the ground.  Blame it on the lake effect snowflakes falling from the sky.  It’s all perception, however.   Sometimes…

Several Minds, Copious Thoughts

Twice this month, I was nominated for The Versatile Blogger Award but CNY writer, Mark Bialczak (whose name I can now spell without having to look), and Lara, my new friend-from-around-the-bend in Massachusetts.  I nominated these two, because they deserve it.  Yes, I want to repay the favor, but I wouldn’t do this if they weren’t…

Winding Down

An In-Between (#001)

Sitting.  Checking posture.  Closing eyes.  Still typing.  Open eyes to post music. Sitting.  Checking posture.  Closing eyes.  Still typing.  This song, “Youth” by Daughter, downloaded for free months ago, and clicking the Free button in the iTunes store was an impulsive one.  How brave is that–downloading a song without previewing it.  It can just as easily be deleted;…

Daytripping in New Jersey

Sorry.  There was no post yesterday (obviously).  I’m starting this Weird Wednesday series off to a terrible start.  (Wah-waaaaaaaaah.)  To describe that lack of a pilot episode, it’s a picnic basket left at your front door after my ringing the doorbell and ringing.  Looking out of your door window or peephole–depending on where you live–you…
