My four year old grandson and I were sitting in the backyard last Saturday watching the birds and thoroughly enjoying the beautiful weather. Birds were chirping and we heard a distinctively loud cackle followed by an answering cackle.We smiled as we realized that the birds were talking to each other.“What do you think they are saying to each other?” I asked.“They’re saying ‘I love you’. “ my grandson answered with a big smile.I’ve been thinking about how wonderful it is to he...

My commute is back. Some never stopped but, for me, the easing of restrictions allows a gradual and deliberate return to the office.Getting to the office means commuting — in my case, a twenty to thirty minute drive. I had commuted to work my whole life — until March of 2020. As with so many of us, working remotely cut my commute to a few steps.While working remotely from home - and not commuting - I was mindful of the impact of not commuting. Among the things that came to mi...

I was in line at a liquor store on the North Fork of Long Island to purchase a bottle of local wine when the man in front of me bent over to take a small airline size bottle of liquor from the bin in front of the register.“One dollar” said the cashier, “plus tax”.The man put a dollar bill down and reached into his pocket searching to see whether he had the change to pay the nine cents tax.Instinctively, I reached into my pocket — doubting whether I had any change and not know...

We have a bird feeder in our backyard. Watching the birds, I’ve learned a few things.Birds like to eat. Put out bird food and they’ll come.Birds of different species generally do not hang out together. Rarely do I see birds of different species share the feeder. I wish I could change this, but it seems to be true that birds of the same feather flock together.Size matters. The bigger birds push the smaller birds away and the smaller birds seem intimidated, do not bother the la...

We were sitting outside having dinner at a local restaurant and Flo noticed a woman at a table nearby whose handbag was on the pavement by her seat.“She could really use a Clipa.” One of those handy rings (available from Refined Finds) that hangs a handbag from the table and keeps it off the ground. Flo wondered whether she had an extra in the car.We finished dinner and walked to our car which was parked nearby. As Flo looked for the extra Clipa, we saw another woman walk tow...

The small package was left on my desk. There was a package in a package and on the outside of the inner package was a note. “Ben - Like you, I always keep a pen in my pocket. And, I also loved my Space pen. I don’t have any more of those but thought these might be a nice substitute. Enjoy and be well. Neal” Fellow Gothamite Neal Berman had read my blog last week (about losing my Space pen). His gesture epitomizes what Gotham is all about. “…..what goes around comes around.” T...

For many, many years I had a black Fischer space pen. The black matt was chipped - a respectable sign of its being well utilized over so many years.Last February, I lost it.I replaced it a few weeks later. New black matt finish.Last weekend, we were sitting outside in West Stockbridge, Massachusetts having an iced coffee. I heard the clink of the pen hitting beneath - having escaped from my pocket. I looked down and saw the spaces between the planks of the wooden deck. No pen...

“Stop and smell the roses” often alludes me.We were visiting the New York Botanical Garden to see the Yayoi Kasuma installations. We approached the Narcissus Garden and we could see them from a distance. Over one thousand silver spheres floating in the water.The sun was shining. Light reflecting off the spheres as they were moved by the gentle breeze.On any other day, I would have walked on. But I stopped and took a position overlooking the water. I observed. I took out my ph...

I am waiting, patiently, for the cicadas. There is much written about the pending invasion, and I wait. As the ground warms up, the time of their expected emergence approaches. Our son in Alexandria Virginia- where it is a little warmer- has already shared pictures of the creatures. Although we see some every season, this year will be different with the great seventeen year cycle. The noise, the little crunching carcasses everywhere. It will be annoying. But most of all, it ...
