In a FaceTime call the other day, our four year old grandson offered that he couldn’t wait to visit us at our house - "maybe when the virus is over” ... and... “maybe even we won’t have to wear masks”.


From the mouths of babes....

When my children were born, I saved a copy of the New York Times from their birthday. I’m not sure what eventually happened to those copies over the many years but I remember showing it to them as they grew up. On Tuesday, my daughter gave birth to her second child - our newest grand-daughter. On Wednesday, my daughter texted me and asked me whether I had a copy of Tuesday’s New York Times….and could I save it. A nice tradition - remembered and valued. ...

For years we have celebrated New Year’s Eve with our dear friends. Usually just the two couples. We’d find a place on the East End to have dinner and stay over for breakfast on New Year’s Day. This year will be different—for obvious reasons- but we are trying to hold on to some tradition. We found a place to have an early dinner with our friends. Outside, of course. Then we’ll drive home - well before midnight. Bringing on the new year in the time of pandemic. Be safe and ...

I become obsessed when something is lost. The reason for my obsession is the realization that things that are lost do not actually disappear. The mystery is that they exist somewhere but are not found. The challenge is to find what is lost. The challenge is my obsession. The earring slid off Flo’s ear while she was sitting in the front seat of the car and we were certain that, wherever it fell, it was in the car. It was dark and we searched with the light of my cellphone. No...

My father often said that, as a host, you invite people and put a roof over their heads — the rest is up to them.How true it is in our Gotham family. In person meetings, events, and now, virtual meetings. We invite and put a roof over our heads...and our members do the rest.So it was, again, on Tuesday at our Covid Business Update. Ten joined the meeting to discuss what they had learned in the months of Covid and the lessons that would help them through what lies ahead.The me...

  One day last week I received five voice messages on my cellphone advising me that there were outstanding warrants for my arrest. The phone calls came from all over the country.I also received text messages first advising me that Netflix would extend my account and then that my Netflix account was being canceled.“Just call back to avoid arrest"... or "click on the link to secure your Netflix account.”Thankfully, I am still free and on good terms with Netflix — despite having...

It's time for another T-Shirt Blog..... Have you considered discarding that old T shirt? Here’s something to think about. We recently welcomed a new person into our extended family. Our cousins became grandparents to Baby Arlo.In a picture, Grandpa Cousin posed proudly with little Arlo on his lap, while wearing a T shirt that he had gotten many years ago at a concert celebrating the fortieth anniversary of Alice’s Restaurant.A great shirt - now with special meaning. Someday G...

The line wasn’t quite around the long block. It certainly wasn’t as bad as we had seen earlier or the day before or as we witnessed the next day. The rain and mist had stopped and it was a bit milder.Everyone was wearing a mask and the line moved steadily. People in pairs were in conversation while those alone were preoccupied with their phones. Within twenty minutes, we were inside and directed to a table for registration and the task at hand. Thirty minutes after getting on...

Nowadays we’re not seeing certain people as frequently as we used to. And I’ve noticed changes in people that probably would have not been noticed in the regular and gradual personal interactions of “normal” times.Perhaps it’s the Zoom or Facetime camera, poor lighting, neglect in grooming, but I’ll see someone who I haven’t seen in a while and can’t help but comment to myself about a change of appearance. Yes. I sometimes wonder whether others are seeing me similarly. Is the...

I cursed the traffic that turned an hour and a half drive to visit friends into a three hour nightmare. I thought about the recent months of light traffic. I considered the  reasons for the heavy traffic and for the light traffic. Pondering only one aspect of the Return as I reflect upon what we’ve been through. ...
