Sh*t My Mother Sends Me & So Much More!

I haven’t shared anything from my mother in awhile, so I thought today was as good a day as any for a little humor. Courtesy of my mother, who received this from my brother, I think. Sometimes it’s hard to figure out the source… but regardless, the importance of punctuation. And now that many of… Continue reading Sh*t My Mother Sends Me & So Much More!

2020: A Year in Photographs

Happy New Year!

Pandemic Humor

When times are tough it’s helpful to find the humor in any and all situations. Of course it helps that I’m married to a man whose DNA revealed he descends from Vikings and his grandmother hailed from County Clare. I’m a German/Swiss/Mayflower descendant. I’ve decided the Swiss part cancels out at least some of the… Continue reading Pandemic Humor

And Now For Some Humor…

With much of the country and world resorting to increasingly strident measures due to the pandemic’s unrelenting destruction, here are a few memes and other silliness to make you smile. Years ago my husband, who is constantly hoping to catch sight of a UFO, and believes he will some day, came across acronyms that introduced… Continue reading And Now For Some Humor…

The Pandemic & Stitching Anyway

Just about ten days ago New York City was enjoying a less than 1% infection rate. We are now at about 17.6 cases for every 100,000 people, which is still relatively small when compared to other parts of the country. But in densely populated areas like Manhattan it doesn’t take much to infect a great… Continue reading The Pandemic & Stitching Anyway

The Election, Fall Colors & The Pandemic in New York City

This blog is about life. My life, specifically and how what I experience influences what I create, hence the name of this blog: Where Art & Life Meet. Even so I debated as to whether I would post any of the video I took on Saturday showing people basically having a city-wide street party here… Continue reading The Election, Fall Colors & The Pandemic in New York City

The Pandemic & Life

As our internet is FINALLY up and running and my email is now, miraculously and somewhat bizarrely suddenly working again, I decided yesterday afternoon to do an impromptu live stream. It was very last minute, and touch and go, as the internet began misbehaving the minute I tried to live stream, but in the end… Continue reading The Pandemic & Life

Sleepless In New York City

On yet another night of sleeplessness I decided it was high time I found out where the whole – count sheep and fall asleep – idea originated. Which, oddly, led me to the discovery of Goats Parkour and the fact that sea otters love to eat sea urchin, which, as facts go, is kind of… Continue reading Sleepless In New York City

News & Musings From New York City

The news here in New York City, more specifically Manhattan, is that non-essential shops, restaurants, etc will continue to be in lockdown. Tell that to the Irish Pub less than a block away that is a thriving hive of activity, selling burgers and free shots to any who “need” it. As we were hit harder… Continue reading News & Musings From New York City

I’ve Lost All Track of Time & Other Thoughts During This Pandemic

I know today’s Thursday because I post a new blog Tuesdays and Thursdays, and also because I have my glasses on and my iWatch conveniently tells me that it’s Thu April 23rd. I also now know that it’s cloudy outside, and at this moment 42℉. Of course, one is putting a great deal of faith… Continue reading I’ve Lost All Track of Time & Other Thoughts During This Pandemic
