Two blogs ago, I wrote about a view from a glove. Giving personality to inanimate objects is, for me, a wonderful little fantasy escape. An exercise in imagination. Feelings should abound and be enjoyed even by things. My fantasies were validated the other morning. We are lucky to have a wonderful glass sculpture that we call “Sunshine”. It’s a fairly large yellow droplet shape with streaks of white. It’s by a window and enjoys playing with the sunlight as it comes through...

Last Sunday, Flo and I were at a hardware store in Huntington, Long Island, just picking up a few things. As we got to the counter, the cashier informed us that he had to charge us 5 cents for a bag to pack our purchases. It was our first encounter with the new “bag law” that went into effect in Suffolk County on January 1st. “No, thank you. We have a reusable bag.” We answered. Flo and I always have a reusable bag handy. Flo had one in her purse, she always carries at le...

It’s cold, really cold, and one of the absolute necessities are gloves. But what’s it like from the viewpoint of a glove? “I like being needed, especially when the weather gets really cold. I feel appreciated. But one of the great occupational hazards of being a glove is being lost. I hate being taken for granted, neglected and lost. The worst is being left on the ground or in a parking lot. Very lonely and very little chance of every being found. However, it has happened. If...

Last Saturday, the Mediterranean Snack Bar in Huntington closed its doors - for good. It had been an institution for 43 years and, I can safely say that Flo and I have been eating at “Mediterranean” for a majority of those years. It was a safe place, good food, always welcoming and comforting. It’s the end of an era. I think back on other “institutions” that have come and gone. Some replaced, others always missed. A fitting reflection as we approach the end of the year....

If you’ve ever wondered whether your vote makes a difference, consider what’s going on in Virginia. Three races for seats in the Virginia House of Delegates are in the midst of recounts. Yesterday morning the reports were that one of the candidates had a one vote lead. That one seat could also shift party control in the House. (Yesterday afternoon the report was that another ballot had been found and the vote was tied.) The takeaway? Every vote counts. ...

Reflections from the subway. I am an occasional subway rider. However, I was on the subway yesterday. Walking in the tunnels connecting the Times Square stations. I could not help but think about the incident on Monday. The planned bomb that, thankfully, did not cause the intended result. I am confident that I will continue to take subways. I’m less confident that the thoughts will ever abate. A new reality accepted. ...

Yesterday, the morning after Gotham announced its Networkers of the Year and recipient of the revered Red Bandana Award, Time magazine announced its Person of the Year — the Silence Breakers — the women who came forward to hold Harvey Weinstein accountable and bring him down. Inspiring, and inspired by, #MeToo, the Silence Breakers began a conversation. Indeed it is more than a conversation. There are revelations every day, and with every new revelation, we are each compelled...

There is so much going on. Sometimes it’s a relief to just talk sports. There is something I don’t like about the Eli Manning situation. The Giants have been awful this season — one of the worse I can remember. Eli, the Giants’ quarterback and long-time face of the franchise, was abruptly told that he would not be starting this Sunday’s fire 210 straight starts over 14 years, Eli has been benched. Call me sentimental, but I remember the great Super Bowl wins brought to us by ...

On this day, there are so many things to be thankful for.... As I sit at our Thanksgiving table, surrounded by family, I expect that my thoughts of thanks will focus on two things: First, having just survived the annual Thanksgiving basketball game, and Second, the two newest members of our family who are celebrating their first Thanksgivng this year. May we all survive many furture basketball games and May our newest family members enjoy many, many Thanksgivings to come.   H...

I’m not one who pedals conspiracy theories but I do marvel at some coincidences. We live in stressful times. Cable news attests to that. Is it any wonder that the standards for hypertension have been lowered? More blood pressure medication will flow. And the new head of Health and Human Services comes from Big Pharma. And all this came in one day earlier this week. The perfect storm. ...
