Kvetch in the City – June 2022

Last night I watched an exciting video conference unveiling the first photograph of the Milky Way’s black hole that resides in our galaxy. This was apparently very big news, finally capturing a photo of the enormous and mysterious black hole that could lead to discoveries and possible a…

April 2022 Kvetch in the City

 

 

 

 

 

 

History tends to repeat itself unless the lesson is learned. Whenever I visit Manhattan, I get back on the dating apps and feel a tinge more hopeful (oops…lesson not learned.) Because I feel “home” and a feeling of being in my element, it’s an easy fool. Th…

I need to clear something up. I’m fine. Apparently, there was some voiced concern from my last column that I was not doing okay. I was writing my truth last month of traditionally feeling a bit blue during the months of January and February. It seems to h…

While I was greatly relieved to make note of the fact that the days are once again starting to grow longer, I still found myself having a bit of a dark day recently. At first, I tossed it off to the fact that the Golden Globes was not being televised this…

Kvetch in the City December 2021

I went to Target thinking I might find a menorah to bring to my son since I am going to visit him for Chanukah this year and thought it would be nice for him to have his own Menorah for his new place in Manhattan.  

When I turned down the aisle towards the section that holds holiday …

Kvetch in the City October 2021

On my most recent trip to NYC I found myself daily indulging in a big way in Italian food and vegan ice cream…in ways that seemed comparable to Robert DeNiro preparing for his 60lb weight gain role in Raging Bull. While tripping out on the endless selection of fine NYC restaurants woul…

September 2021 Kvetch in the City

I recently happened upon an article that busted the myth that we only use 10% of our brains.

I’m glad to know that, since while it always gave me hope that if I was truly only using 10% of my brain, there remained some redeeming discoveries still left for me to happen upon, it also made m…

Kvetch in the City August 2021

I’ll never forget the day my mom was diagnosed with inoperable cancer. From her hospital bed in NYC she called and told me the dreadful news. I quietly and quickly bought a ticket and flew up to the city the next morning. I went straight from the airport to her hospital room. I remember…

Kvetch in the City July 2021

I would be remiss to even think of writing this month’s reflections, I mean kvetches, without first sending a loving virtual hug to Dear Esther for so generously dedicating her valuable Observer realty to indulge my musings last month. I so appreciate her insight, clarity, knowing she has …

July in the Gordon JCC Galleries

The Janet Levine March Gallery will feature the work of Lauren Karp. Lauren is a nature photographer who specializes in artistic wildlife photos. Raised in the bucolic countryside of Pennsylvania, Lauren spent her childhood in lush fields, meandering creeks and scenic farmlands. Amid this ba…

Kvetch in the City

Recently, my friend and I were talking about trying to downsize our lives and how hard it is to get rid of tchotckies. Inanimate objects from which we derive so much joy. 

 

From there the conversation turned to online dating and somehow ended up at cremation and dying. I’m not saying …
