C’mon autumn!

I have never been, and I suspect I will never be, a summer person. Not big on spring either (allergies play no small role in that). I’m cool with winter (I did grow up in Canada playing hockey from about age 4) and like a lot of people out there, I love the fall. My favorite piece of clothing is a sweater. I can’t wait to get my sweaters out, going for windy walks in Central Park and coming back indoors and making hot chocolate. Yes, that’s a cliché as it gets and I’m entirely ok with that.

Have a wonderful day, everyone.



OK, let’s try this again

I think it’s pretty apparent that I’m not a social media pro, not even semi-pro. I do understand a lot of the world is online these days, but it’s like pulling my own teeth to get me to post. I’ll do the odd post on FB or Twitter, but even then I’m usually just sharing a photo or article I found. It’s not from any sense of ‘I’m better than this’, but more I just don’t know what I would write about.

I suppose if I was jet setting around the globe I could regale you with new and exotic locales and interesting people, but like most of us I’ve been in a more or less constant lockdown for over a year and a half. And like most of us, I am sooooooooooo tired of this pandemic. It doesn’t seem like it’s going to end.

Perhaps I shouldn’t have chosen a gray Monday morning to re-engage with social media, but to quote General George S. Patton “A good plan, violently executed now, is better than a perfect plan executed next week.”



Are smoothies a super food?

I suppose it depends entirely on what’s in them. Mine aren’t filled with exotic extracts or rare fruits, but drinking one just makes me feel healthier and an overall better human.

How’s that for vapid?
