The Cycle of Life

Dear Son, I hope all is well on the West Coast. We have the usual chaos you would expect in New York City. You may have seen the news and the reports about the migrants. It’s a tough situation and must be resolved sooner than later. But to simplify things, the city has its hands […]


Into the Abyss

Dear Pop, All is well on my end. How are things in the Big Apple? I saw the recent headline about the incident on the F line, and while it is sad, I can’t say it is unexpected. The subway has always been a rough place but the surge in incidents as Covid rage and […]

Missing in Action

Dear Son, I hope this letter finds you well. At our age, you sometimes need a vacation from your vacation. But we’re adjusting to being back home. I’ve been following the news from around America, and it’s not pretty. I couldn’t imagine being a young person today. There’s so much expected of them yet financially […]


Dear Pop, Don’t apologize at all, I’m glad that you and mom enjoyed your vacation. The two of you needed time away from NYC and a change of scenery. Boston delivers on many fronts and I will return to visit the city at some point in the future. The Golden State is okay for the […]

Have Goals, Will Travel

Dear Son, I apologize for the long day in writing. But as I advised over the phone, things were quite busy in New York, and your mother and I made out trip up north to Boston the last week of March. We are back home safe and sound. There is no place like home. But […]

Dark Times

Dear Pop, All is well here on the West Coast but I’m sure you’ve seen the news regarding the bank closures. There is still a sense of shock and one of gloom. People are rightly nervous, but I have hope that things will work out. There were blizzard warnings, but nothing compared to what Buffalo […]

The Ides of March

Dear Junior, I hope all is well. Everyone here is doing well, but we’ve noticed how fast time is moving these days. Soon the middle of March will be upon us.  Well, there was not much of a winter this year here in the Big Apple, but I don’t want to speak too soon and […]

Trying Times

Dear Pop, My apologies for the late response but work has been brutally busy since the year started. The workload is heavy but steady, and at the end of the day I am grateful to be employed. But there are some days that are not for the faint at heart. Things are well here; the […]

Failed Lessons

Dear Junior, Don’t worry, your mother and I know that you are busy at work and with other things. The main thing is that you’re safe and sound.  How have you been doing? I’m glad to hear that you enjoyed the holidays, we did too, and New Year’s Eve passed peacefully here. I don’t recall […]

Time Flies

Dear Pop, I apologize for the long delay in writing back to you. The year has started off good here, but it has been unbelievably busy. Time moves exponentially faster these days. I guess it’s a reminder to slow down at times and enjoy the moment. Yes! I put a tree and kept the holiday […]
