Have you ever wondered what “normal” — as in “the temperature today was 5 degrees above normal” - is?Well, it’s about to change.Normal temperatures are determined by a thirty year average of temperatures. Every ten years the average is reset by dropping the earliest decade’s numbers. The change is about to take place and the new normal temperatures will be the average of temperatures from 1990 through 2020.So, as in so many things in our lives, what’s “normal” will soon be th...

Thursday, April 1st. April Fool’s Day. Opening Day. The Mets and Yankees begin the baseball season — with fans in the stands for the first time since 2019. “Fool” and “opening”. “Opening” and “fool”. Two words, two concepts. Both associated with the same day. Two words that have considerably different meaning today than they had a year ago. Enjoy the day. ...

We were in Washington D.C. last weekend, visiting our children and grandchildren in the District and Alexandria. Two of the immediate benefits of being vaccinated was being able to hug my daughter, who I hadn’t seen in over a year,  and hold my two-month-old granddaughter for the first time. One of our drives took us right by the Capitol. At first I thought there was construction. Then I realized that the fencing — that would keep us from strolling on that grass as we had so ...

It was a year ago - March 11, 2020 - and the New York Health and Longevity Group met at Club Quarters on 45th Street. There was caution in the air. No masks but no handshakes. Little did we know that it would be the last in-person meeting. Broadway would show its last shows that evening. The lockdown was hours away. As we greeted each other at the meeting, I grasped my hands in front of me - my hands shaking each other. A gesture of greeting and farewell. In lieu of a handsha...

It had been almost a year since we were inside a museum, so the notice from the Brooklyn Museum grabbed our attention. It was an invitation to a member’s preview of the new Kaws exhibit. At the museum. Not virtual. Limited admission. After six in the evening. We could schedule it exactly two weeks after our second vaccine. We considered. What was most striking to me as I walked into the museum was the sense that I had just been there. It didn’t seem like more than a year h...

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...
