Most Popular G+ Image So Far

And p.s. I am probably trying to do too much at the same time. I’m attempting to get the New York New York group going. I believe now that it will have to be opened up to anyone in order to gain traction. And it may need more than the 7 possible moderators I may...

Hemingway and Pound

I am not going to say anything trite like, please be patient while whatever is being done to the blog design happens because that has been said to me so many times lately by my insurance company, the cable company and any corporation that takes my money (phew) so in...

Creating a Community

You might wonder where I’ve been – or what I’ve been up to the last week or so: it’s something new they call social networking. Maybe you’ve heard of these things like Facebook (what an odd name to have success with) and Google Plus which...

New York Charm School

Often, as I’m falling asleep, certain images come to mind. I tell myself – oh, leave it alone. But this image from 2005 on the Upper East Side kept returning. It’s one of those street shots that I really wish I had done better. On the other hand...

Mad Artist 2

Water from Wall Street

Water from Wall Street

Early 90′s.  The wall street wall of water.  A place for poor people to crawl on their knees and fill up plastic jugs of water.  A few blocks from Stock Exchange.  Still there or not – I don’t know. I can easily imagine the architect presenting the...
Living in the Past

Living in the Past

I have been accused by several people of the charge: Living in the Past. Specifically, they have said that the books I read are from the 19th century – or worse yet – the 18th century.  And worse yet – there have been people saying that they think I...

Life in the World of Insurance

As you may or may not know – I’ve suffered with various intestinal issues since I was in my 40s.  In my 50′s – the Colitis simply disappeared.  In my 60s it returned with a vengeance.  But that’s not the point.  My insurance lapsed at one...

Life in East Village (2)

Back then – before they were the homeless – or street people – they were the bums. You were seven blocks away from the Bowery. Mostly it was dangerous psychotic people wandering around. This particular fellow carried a sharp stick beneath his robes,...
