Glorious Overpeck Park

Read More

  I enjoyed a glorious walk through the winding paths of this park in Leonia, NJ.  It’s a hidden gem because it is behind the County Stables and so few people know about it. So unspoiled and beautiful. I am blessed.

Body Image

Body Image My body is amazing.  It has survived exposure and neglect and yet has never failed me.  I’ve never been sick or injured despite flailing myself about all the time over the last 56 years.  Literally, flailing this body into the throws of everything – my body remains intact – never broken.  I am amazed and humbled and brought joy by my strong, healthy body. I take pleasure in…

The yards and rails sat in neglect for years until Mayor Bloomberg obtained funding to revitalize the area and make it a public walkway.

The Theory Of Neglect

Read More

The Theory of Neglect I come from neglect.  I became an orphan at age 14; up until that time, I did not receive any medical or dental care.  These were not things that were priorities to my mother.  If I did get sick enough to need to see a doctor, she would take me.  Once, I was prescribed penicillin in a bottle with the dosage written on the bottle; however,…

Mother’s Day Reimagined

I have enough stuff.  I’m 57.  I prefer to eat in my home with my children together; that is special to me.  Memories, moments and experiences shared, that is what is important to me.  I took a chance on asking for a gift I’d ask for many years ago; this time they said yes.  It was the most wonderful day …. enjoying the visit of these fantastic, rescued reptiles.  I…
