Positive Vibes ~ CURVE NY

We are all feeling the throwback of the current state of politics in the USA.  It doesn’t matter what side you’re on, it’s frustrating.  Just when the economy seems to be crawling back from the brink, we get front ended by partisan rancor.  So, frankly, for me, the CurveNY show held at the Javits Center last week was a welcome respite.  Not only was it an escape from the onslaught of nefarious media, but it … Read More

This week’s Intimate Discovery: Intimate Soirée for Specialty Stores Nominated for BOI AWARDS

It was a perfect summer evening on Sunday, July 31 in New York City.

Cool Thoughts ~ Fantasie

Free & Easy ~ Eberjey

Could it be the salty air, ocean breeze

Or the beach

Nearby, I think

More than these things

It is the seagull soaring

She spreads her wings

Softly slips her feathered form through clear, cloudless skies

She is me


A profile of freedom

I moved to the beach in the early 70’s while my friends were settling in Manhattan.   No one could quite grasp why I decided on this hour long commute to work … Read More
