Thank you to the New York Times! You do care.

A few months back I wrote that I was getting home delivery of the New York Times even though I did not want it. I also accused the New York Times of not hearing me.

I TAKE IT BACK. Once I sent my blog post via email in August to the publisher- the unwanted papers stopped.

Yay, I felt heard and cared about. In this age of text only conversations this is no small thing.

Thank you New York Times. A happy digital subscriber-one day I may want the actual paper again, till then, thanks for listening.

Long Beach SandĀ Sculpture

It keeps threatening to rain here on Long Island and then it doesn’t. So we are in a drought.

As it turns out it was a good thing because Long Beach has a Sand Sculpture exhibit that would have been washed away.

Sponsor sculpture

Sand sculpture is ephemeral, fragile. Like Greg Grady, sand sculptor

Long Beach Sand Sculpture

our planet which is under a state of siege on all fronts.

Most especially from the massive oil leak fouling the waters in the Gulf of Mexico.

These sculptures tell the story. Artists names were nowhere listed on website just sponsor names so here’s what I could gather in no particular order: Matthew Deibert of Atlantic City, NJ; Attilio “Steven” Topazio, Tiverton, Rhode Island; Meredith Corson, Treasure Island, Florida; Andy Gertler, Sea Cliff, Long Island, NY; Greg Grady, http://www.greggrady.com;Dan Doubleday, Treasure Island, Florida; Kirk Rademaker, Somewhere in the woods of Northern California.

Superstars.

What else is there to say?
