Clean up on the Q

On the subway the other morning I dropped my iced coffee. It did that flippity flip thing where for a brief second I thought it would land right side up. No dice. 16oz of coffee and iced spilled all over the place. Luckily no one was hit by the splatter but rivers of coffee formed … Continue reading

It was a blurr

Hard to believe its been over a month since I last blogged but it has. Apologies to any regular readers. Life just sort of took over [ie: work] and having resolved to go to bed earlier / not start new tasks after 11pm meant my blogging took a hit. So this is what happened… I … Continue reading

The tracks run from Gansevoort St up to 34th Street and the structure is gorgeous. The … Continue reading

Friendship on the streets

Late last night as I was heading toward the subway on the way home from a very long day at work, I noticed two homeless people had set up their home for the night by the entrance. They were both elderly and one of them was washing the other with baby wipes while chatting away … Continue reading

Death defines us

Walking through the cemetery I noticed the inscriptions on the headstones – devoted son, father and grandfather. Precious only child , beloved wife and mother. sister. wife. mother. In death, we are not defined by what we did ot who we were but by what we meant to others. How well we loved and were … Continue reading
