Until next week ... kisses
he Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King is still remembered, as he should and always will be. With marches professing peace and social justice for all, the upper school students at Manhattan Country School made their annual trek through the streets of Upper Manhattan to remind us, lest we forget, “No justice, No peace.”
The deep arctic freeze is upon us and all I can say is button up your overcoat. Although the snow doesn’t accumulate like it used to, nothing has stopped the winds blowing off the Arctic ice from swooping down on us.
Faith, family, peace, goodwill and good deeds—just a few phrases to start off the new year, along, of course, with your resolutions. Always starting the new year off is the last major event of the old year
Wait a minute. It’s not over. In fact, we’re just getting started. It’s the celebration that just keeps going.
Let the countdown begin. It’s Christmastime in the city. Although the snow helped a little, where are the Santas on every corner ringing bells?
It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go. The sidewalk Christmas trees are plentiful and beautiful, which is one of the many things I love about this time of year.
The beginning of December always feels like the calm before the storm. Like the song “Proud Mary,” by Ike and Tina Turner where Tina would start off, “We’re gonna begin this song nice and easy but we’re gonna finish this song nice and rough.”
Happy Thanksgiving. The holiday brings out the sentimentality in us because at some point we stop to reflect on the things we are thankful for. Even my 12-year-old daughter is beginning to remark on how fast time goes by.
Baby, it’s cold outside. I don’t know what to expect next, but I hope it’s not a blizzard.
After all of the Halloween excitement, it’s soothing to see how easy November slips in. Yet, November, which begins with All Soul’s Day and continues with a special occasion each week, is one of the busiest months of the year. There’s Election Day, Veteran’s Day and the biggest holiday of the year, Thanksgiving.
