There's a hot new photographer in Bernal Heights, and her career is just getting started.
Neighbor Sarabeth Spector has been wowing me for months with her terrific photos of urban landscapes and the intimate details of everyday objects. Others have started to notice her talent as well: One of her pictures was selected by the Harvey Milk Photo Center for inclusion in the…
I have treasured this one from the day he gave it to me. Inspiring. And so true. One of the boxes on the card says, “Keep dancing.” One of my favorite things to do. Dance. Especially with him.
Keep dancing, yes indeed.
Dance with life.
Even when it clearly sucks. Right now there are indeed some s*cky aspects. Mark’s cancer started to take off because he was not able to be treated. Eeek.
So it’s a battle and I am looking to make a miracle. I live in that possibility of magic and miracles. I wear a bracelet from my friend Payson Cooper that says Expect Miracles. I pray for one daily and could use some help here. If you pray, please put Mark in there somewhere. I do not care what your faith is just please have some for him. Whatever it is for you. And thank you for that.
When I look at this photo of us taken in Cancun in 1991, I am grateful we got to take this silly shot in Cancun.
Don’t we look chic in our snorkling gear?
Mark is wearing an Aruba shirt and I am wearing one that I found blowing on the beach that says Can-cun just like Coca-Cola. We are about to go snorkling in a man-made place I remember it was a bit strange the water murky and a little too warm and the fish looked like they were tired of all the tourists.
No matter. The drive over there from our little eco-resort in our tan Volkswagon beetle was priceless.
(Like the Mastercard commercial.)
When I think about that trip and some of the other adventures we have taken together both away and right here in NY, I long for a few more of those days again.
As grateful as I think I am I get to see that sometimes I can be a wretch of silent complaining of how bad things are right now and then “poof” in a instant I snap out of it and give it up so I can ask for what I want instead..so.here is it.
What I want for my sweet handsome hubby Mark is to make a miracle for him please one more time and bring him to wellness and more good hours than suck-y hours. He may have been dealt a very unlucky cancer card, but I am praying for good fortune to smile on Mark.
Message to the big guy>>>May the meds work.
Mark is someone who changed the lives of children in some of the most under-served communities in NYC.
An educator with a caring heart and a flair for creativity and bringing math to life.
Please give Mark stability and wellness and a date to skate in Central Park again.
I know you got it in you.

It doesn't get any simpler than this.
Everything has beauty, but not everyone sees it.~ Confucius
Surely something so simple cannot be this easy, can it?
I assure you, with a little effort, it absolutely is, and with that effort, you will be so richly rewarded.
With all the wonderful alternatives to dairy milk out there, it is no surprise that coconut, with all of the amazing health benefits that come with it, is leading the charge in many ways as a delicious way to get good fats and loads of high quality energy into our bodies.
The life you save may be your own. And the whales and other giant sea creatures who ingest your “happy 40th birthday” balloons
Save the whales people❤❤
Do this: after the party is over-
1. Pop all balloons especially if you are lucky enough to have a party at the beach.
Pick up the popped balloons and please toss them in the trash.
You will be doing such a good thing for all.
Start by removing all pretense, then your shoes.

I went, I saw, I ate, I reveled. I went home.
Freshly back from a visit to the country, my senses are still reeling from the sights and sounds of water, birds, soft grass, good clean food, laughter and plenty of…
