We were in Falmouth for the 47th running of the prestigious Falmouth Road Race — a 7.1 mile run from the drawbridge in Woods Hole to the British Beer Company tavern in Falmouth Heights. Our Inn was right on the path of the race about a tenth of a mile from the finish. The porch gave us a perfect view. Watching the runners was inspirational and a bit nostalgic. Elite women and men and the mere mortals. Every one with a story, a purpose and a goal. There was even more insp...

You’ve got to discard (recycle) things from time to time. Advice I've heard is that if you haven’t used it in a year or two, it’s time to clean it out. I have followed that advice as best I can...usually without regret. This year we’ll be in Falmouth Massachusetts on the weekend of the famous Falmouth Road Race. I’ve been to Falmouth many times, but not on the weekend of the race that I ran over forty years ago. I regret having cleaned out the T Shirt and medal that I...

It is a small theater in the Berkshires and we settled into our seats looking forward to the show. Soon after we were seated, a patron came in and sat behind us. The gentleman carried a portable oxygen concentrator that was providing air flow to the tubes leading to his nose. As he sat and the lights dimmed the noise - a whirring sound - coming from the portable unit was undeniable. The man’s wife suggested that he turn the fan down and he did. It was annoying to those...

It's summer and that means t-shirts and hats. I have too many t-shirts and too many hats. Many reminders of places visited. Something about probably being meaningful when I got them. Last weekend we were in the Berkshires and I donned a t-shirt from Tobay - the South Shore beach of the Town of Oyster Bay on Long Island --- and my baseball cap blazen with “Tanglewood”. There is something about certain messages in certain places. First someone came up to me at the Far...

How do you get to work? I’m thinking about this as I ride the Long Island Railroad for a day of meetings in the City. Over the years I have “commuted” for untold hours in almost every imaginable mode of transportation. I have read, sometimes with amazement, sometimes with admiration, about commuters who retire and celebrate forty years of continuous commuting on the LIRR. For me, it’s been a varied feast. Largely dictated by where I’ve lived and where I’ve worked, I’v...

As I do every morning, I opened the doors and looked out at the deck as the early sunshine foretold a very pleasant summer day. I gazed across and admired the large potted tomato plants which were progressing nicely for early July with buds abound and several tomatoes in the making. Then I saw it. There was a bee moving from flower to flower on the tomato plants. I haven’t seen as many bees over the past few years as I remember. I’ve always appreciated the work of bee...

Sitting at a playground in New York City… Observing. A playground not unlike hundreds in the City. Something for everyone between the ages of 6 months and the teen years and older. Swings for parents to push to the glee of their riders. Climbing and sliding challenges. Maybe not today - but there is tomorrow. By the end of summer, they will be conquered. Many children. Different ages and colors. Needing to take turns. Learning to share. And there...

Gothamite Carol Schiro Greenwald visited Gotham’s Long Island Dinner Group on Tuesday evening and presented eye-opening insight, and vibrant discussion, of Referral Etiquette and the interplay of the Connector, the Referrer, and the Referred. The takeaway is straightforward. (And if it requires clarification, Carol will provide.) “Please”, “Thank you”, and “Would you” are the words to be used. However, the most salient for me is Carol's encouragement to use the word “beca...

We recently attended a destination wedding. It was extended family. As with many destination weddings, the “events” often consist of more than the actual wedding ceremony and reception. Due to restrictions and/or limitations on the hosts that we were not privy to, we weren’t included in the welcome dinner. Not sure where the line was drawn; but for whatever reasons, we “didn’t make the cut”. (Yes, that was actually said to us.) We were determined to enjoy our weekend...

The hotel is losing its soul. The building hasn’t changed. Rooms are as nice as ever. But people have left. Others may be leaving. The friendly welcome at reception is not what it used to be. The people whose smiles greet us are not happy and we feel it. The soul of the hotel is the people. The soul is leaving. ...
