Grand Central Station, December 2019.

The year of perfect vision will arrive in a few hours... of course I wish everyone a sparkly new year, wrongs righted, sorrows subsided, art triumphant... my natural ebullience will surely reassert itself, and 2019 subside the way the sad years of 1973 & 1986 have... most of all I hope to hold my loved ones close, some good long hugs that remind us of our unbroken connections... I wish all of this for everyone... & a new president.


And in 2020 I plan to go back to blogging regularly. See ya on the other side!

Most men resemble great deserted palaces: the owner occupies only a few rooms and has closed off wings where he never ventures.

~ François Mauriac 


But it's almost a new year, throw open the doors of perception!

Money Diet



I love to feel a little anorexic about spending

about consuming

I control what I consume

rather than just taking

in what

ever I feel

like, thoughtlessly





(this might be opinion pretending to be poetry)

Feet, what do I need them for, if I have wings to fly. 

~ Frida Kahlo


I just flew back from Spain, where the highlight was spending a few days looking at Romanesque churches in the Pyrenees. We stayed in Vall de Boí & went to see one after another, each in a town only a kilometer or two apart, each unique. Does the Kahlo quote have anything to do with this? No, not really. Blame jet lag, even though I don't really feel that far off from NY time.

A little vacation

After Thanksgiving, I studied like crazy to do a Torah read the Saturday after, & the next day I went to Spain, & now I'm back. Will pick this up again when I'm awake.
