The park is downtown, sandwiched between 6th avenue and three West village streets. It’s a hidden gem surrounded by a 10 foot brick wall and a red cement building that once housed a day care center.

It was close to 2:00 am and I couldn’t sleep. The two year old red head alarm clock sleeping in the crib next to me would start calling out my name in less than four hours. His screeching would then awaken his six year old twin sisters who… Read full post »
This morning after breakfast I turned the radio on in the kitchen and your 10 year old voice was singing “I want you back”. I cranked the volume and started bustin' my Motown moves, singing “Ah Buh Buh Buh Buh” while the… Read full post »
In early March, I was on my way up Lexington Avenue in New York City on route to meet my friend's 22 year old daughter who was in need of an objective, yet compassionate ear. My express train landed me on the Upper East side earlier than planned.… Read full post »
During the summer of 1986 I was a pint-pulling, soul-seeking, American Au-pere managing to squeeze in a pilgrimage with my sister, where we climbed to the top Croagh Patrick, the holiest Mountain in Ireland. Truth be told, my undercover mission was really a quest for transat… Read full post »
