Very pleased to share that my short story, The Falls, is now available in the latest offering from the literary journal, Crab Creek Review. You can click here if you are interested in ordering it - it is a Seattle-based journal so if you are in that neck of the woods, you can purchase it at bookstores, etc. but if you are an east coaster like me or elsewhere, follow the link.
Also very happy to note that Crab Creek Review has nominated the story for the Pushcart Prize. Thrilling to consider that possibility, always an honor to be nominated.

Caught the wonderful Broadway show, Cabaret, on Sunday with the remarkable Alan Cumming and the current Sally - Emma Stone. Both terrific, the cast amazing. Quite different from the movie version, closer to the book The Berlin Stories by Christopher Isherwood. Adored the actress Linda Emond and her soaring voice as the landlady and her love interest played with such pathos by Danny Burstein. Did the crowded Fifth Avenue stroll afterwards (the tree, the tree) and then onto Bryant Park where I love to stop in the summer for an iced drink after visiting Patience and Fortitude, the Library Lions. Now it's a Christmas wonderland with a surprisingly large ice rink, a lovely tree, and many little wooden "houses" filled with gifts and food goodies and the like. Ample room to sit and rest and watch the skaters here as well - and just a short stroll to Grand Central Station. A good time was had by all.

A fun day trip with a great traveling companion, my fabulous daughter. We hit the road post Sunday bagels. ;) and as we drove realized the Storm King Art place not far, spring road trip noted. I spent a summer living and working in Woodstock a million years ago. Some friends put together a jewelry shop and we all shared shop duties, a bare bones apartment, even gained a rescue kitten from a dire situation (who went on to live a long healthy life with my best friend's parents).

We shall not cease from exploration
And the end of all our exploring
Will be to arrive where we started
And know the place for the first time.

Put yourself into life and never lose your openness, your childish enthusiasm throughout the journey that is life, and things will come your way.
