Laughter and Humor During Troubling Times

Most of us, here in the United States, are hoping the next day and a half will go by quietly and without violence. In addition, since most of us are not yet vaccinated, and the variant has hit the US, with death tolls from COVID at an all time high, I thought the perfect remedy… Continue reading Laughter and Humor During Troubling Times

Facing Adversity

There are so many things going on that I cannot talk about publicly for a variety of reasons, but all of these things piled up can make life feel particularly challenging at this moment. The specifics are unimportant. Most people are grappling with things they cannot and do not talk about for personal reasons. What… Continue reading Facing Adversity

2020: A Year in Photographs

Happy New Year!

Merry Christmas!

When I was young, on December 24th we had a special Christmas eve dinner and then we would open our Christmas presents under the Christmas tree. If we were visiting my grandmother at her house in Colorado, we did the same. The only difference was that she had live candles on her tree and no… Continue reading Merry Christmas!

A Commitment to Show Up

I’ve been thinking about relationships a lot. Perhaps that’s because I’m coming up on my 20th wedding anniversary with this awesome man.

As… Continue reading A Commitment to Show Up

I’ve decided the Swiss part cancels out at least some of the… Continue reading Pandemic 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
