An island of bliss and serenity

http:// Every body needs balance, and for fitness and well being, finding tension and releasing it within your body, nothing, and I mean NOTHING, works as well as a massage.  I’m desperately missing my visits to the message therapist IRL… aches and pains are a daily reminder of how my wellness goals have fallen by the wayside.  Since my county in NY is still “on pause” till mid-June at least, there’s not...

Time for a Tom Collins

http:// One of the many, many side effects of stay-at-home has been that on social drinking.  First off, there’s just no “social”.  Now, I’m not much of a drinker to begin with, but I have enjoyed the ritual of gathering at cocktail hour for a drink or two, especially to watch the sunset in a tropical clime.   Once not so long ago, there was a bit of a stigma of drinking before the appointed hour… that...

The Life of A Tree House

http:// I could be wrong, but I think that tree houses are part of every kid’s imagination.  Even as a city kid, I always wanted a little place of my own (and by “place”, I mean just four walls) that I could climb up to, pull up the ladder, and be alone, away from parents, peer pressure, and everything else.  In today’s world, the idea of tree houses has evolved into an incredible industry of beautiful fantasy...

Hot in the City Tonight

http:// Making a statement doesn’t always have to be a big complicated production.

Mmmm City Life

http:// Ahhh, city life.  Will it ever be the same?  The city is no longer quite as dystopian feeling as it was there for a while, but it still is far from that bustling never-ending jumble of sights and sounds and smells.  To some degree, it’s reminiscent of how deserted some parts of the city can get on weekends during the real heat of the summer, when so many residents head out to the country or the beaches, and the rest stay...

Butterflies are Free to Fly, Fly Away

http:// I don’t know about you, but for me, Stay at Home is getting old.  My county in New York is still pretty much shut down, though some businesses are starting to open.  I finally got my oral surgery done after a 2-month delay, though now I’m caught in the dilemma that my dentist hasn’t opened.  My delayed knee surgery that has prevented me from taking long walks to escape the house is now scheduled for June, so...
