52nd Anniversary

52 years! Happy anniversary to my parents. Molly and Benny. They’ve been through so much. My dad chatted up my mom on a NYC subway. He thought she had great legs. She was carrying some bags so naturally he offered to help. That’s what he says but I think it was more. I think relationshipsContinue reading “52nd Anniversary”

Today Many Years Ago…

A person was lost. He was in turmoil, on trial, looking at a prison sentence. He was also loved. We had a barbecue the day before and I now know, he said goodbye. To our little cousins, to me, to the world. I went to bed, in a state of calmness because of this. TheContinue reading “Today Many Years Ago…”

Girl World

Watching previously loved 90’s films like Clueless and currently Mean Girls. Problematic to say the least but it wasn’t recognized at this time. Terms like “retarded” we’re thrown around at will. Any gay character was comic relief nothing else. Asians were “nerds”, there may or may not of been black characters, if there were theyContinue reading “Girl World”

Casey Anthony Doc

Just watched this. Wow! As a survivor of sexual abuse it hit home. I remember this case. I along with everyone condemned her.

Why was her childContinue reading “Casey Anthony Doc”

Magical Norway from an American point of view

I visited Scandinavia a couple years ago. Couldn’t tell you how many exactly, there were a couple years that disappeared in the pandemic. I was shocked at their philosophy when it comes to government and what the government does for the people. They have a philosophy. From the cradle to the grave. It means, youContinue reading “Magical Norway from an American point of view”

The Good in Humankind

Reading the recent headlines it’s easy to loose faith in people. Mass shooting in Colorado. Terrorist attack in Israel. A myriad of other more localized violence. If you were an alien from another galaxy and you googled earth, you would think the worst. World wars, massacre’s, genocide. All happened and happening as I write this.Continue reading “The Good in Humankind”

Mrs. Mann

I had a third grade teacher named Mrs. Mann They taught me ancient Egypt mythology, Greek mythology and read from a book that had its protagonist, a happy go lucky kid burns their eyes out by illegal fireworks. It was life changing. The way it was explained. In a perfect way a child could understand.Continue reading “Mrs. Mann”
