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. ...

One of the lessons that Justice Ginsburg often repeated was the wisdom from her mother-in-law who advised her that sometimes it is advisable to be deaf. Although it may have been first offered as advice for happiness in marriage, I recently heard a commentator who said that the Justice followed that advice in her professional life as well — not allowing herself to be distracted and lose focus by reacting to anger and other diversions often encountered. A lesson from Justice ...

I posted this blog six months ago. Little did we know…… Last Sunday, we took a flight back to New York from the happy island of Aruba (that’s the subject of another blog). I had given some thought to the usual concerns associated with flying and getting sick. Flo had a very adequate supply of antibacterial wipes - which were put to good use. I thought I had it under control yet was surprised by my reaction to the face masks on the plane. But it was more than I had expec...

Our local supermarket follows the guidelines for masks and social distancing. In addition to monitoring the number of people inside, masks, and providing disinfecting wipes when you enter, the supermarket has imposed “one-way” aisles. A good idea from my perspective.It is annoying to me that some people don’t respect the designated direction of the aisles. More than annoying —because of the health reasons for the one-ways and the risk when not observed. I wonder whether ignor...

I was waiting in line for the farmer’s market in Great Barrington when a woman nearby said that she liked my T Shirt. I was wearing a T Shirt from Hawaii featuring the Rainbow Drive-In Diner in Honolulu. A big smile appeared on her face as she told me that her grandmother lived a few blocks from the Diner. I often vacillate between wearing t-shirts with messages as opposed to plain ones. That morning was a pleasant psychic reinforcement for wearing a shirt with a message. Th...

A few days ago I was inspired to think about the temporary nature of so many things in our lives. Although one could contemplate that everything is temporary, my attention turned to our Passion Flowers.Our Passion Flowers last just one day. The buds form over time and slowly prepare for the flower to open. We watch, hoping the buds survive to bloom. Oftentimes, they do not and fall prematurely. Those that survive wait for the morning sunlight of that one special day to open. ...

Recently, I attended a webinar on the topic of Diversity and Inclusion and I heard the simplest, and most insightful, explanation of Implicit Bias that I have ever heard. I share it in the hope that it adds to each of our understandings and helps in our respective journeys toward better self-awareness. The speaker recalled that whenever his grandfather saw a car accident or a bad driver, he would always project that the driver was a woman. Not sure where it came from, but t...

We had just gotten on the short line outside the ice cream parlor. Two couples ahead of us. I felt the presence of a person behind me and turned around to see an older man without a mask — it was on his chin — uncomfortably close to me. As I turned to look forward and considered whether to say anything, a man ahead of me turned and called out “How about your mask ? It doesn’t help on your chin.” The man behind me fixed his mask to cover his mouth and nose and started to gr...
