The Legends of Kiamichi

The last embers of the day are fading now glowing orange beneath the dark coals.  A few hours ago we were gathered around this campfire, seated on small stones gathered over the decades.  Photo: The Firetender The cool night air is drifting in, a chill mingles with the dwindling source of heat.  Inside my small...

Back To The Future With Keith

Join me on my trip to 1964.  Global tensions were escalating as powerful nations flexed their nuclear-powered muscles.  Finding a way to peace was on our minds. In a move to create a #Unisphere feeling, New York City opened its doors and invited the entire universe to the 1964-65 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows Park... Continue Reading →

Dignity Lost, Rediscovered

Situated at the corner of Broadway and Duane Street, near City Hall in lower Manhattan, the National Park Service operates a National monument  honoring a place, a people, a time once forgotten but now revealed. This sacred ground honors those least respected in their time, the ones with no voice and no power.  The African... Continue Reading →

Well, Hello.  Please Come In.

Tourist season is winding down.  The crowds are somewhat lessened, but there are still plenty of tourists to go around. NY1, our 24/7 TV news station, recently reported that 1 out of three jobs in Manhattan are tourists related.  That caught my attention and piqued my interest.  With a little research, I discovered some interesting...

Coney Island on the 4th of July

It seemed like a New York tradition, so we boarded a train to Coney Island to celebrate the 4th of July. We found Nathan's Original Hotdog stand where they were preparing for the annual Hotdog eating contest. We didn't actually see any of the contestants, so we ate some hotdogs ourselves, just to join in... Continue Reading →

What It Was, Was Shakespeare

Disclaimer:  This is the blog that almost wasn’t.  It was written satirically, tongue in cheek.  This was my first Shakespeare play.  I was totally enthralled with the performances and the production.  When I sat down at my keyboard to write this, my mind drifted back to many years ago when I heard a comedy routine...

Katz Deli

The Madhatters told us to do it!  So we did. Katz Deli is one of the oldest delicatessens in New York City.  It was first opened in 1888 in the same location it is today.  Sliced pastrami is their specialty. I had the pastrami on rye!  Justin and Lynn of the Madhatters strongly suggested the... Continue Reading →

I Just Keep Falling In Love

It is days like this that keep me falling in love with New York again and again. The sun woke me this morning, sending rays bouncing through the apartment. Annoyed at the interruption, I rose to close the blinds when I discovered the beautiful sun rays painting the New Jersey coast of the Hudson River. ... Continue Reading →
