Thank You, Alabama!

You’ve given me and many others hope! When I fell asleep last night Moore had the slimmest of leads, and I felt horrible. If we had elected yet another racist (and pedophile) I would have been absolutely destroyed this morning. But no! Alabama came to the rescue. THANK YOU!!

If you click on the image you’ll see a large picture of Bailey, Bodhi and Bali when they first arrived at the ASPCA’s Kitten Nursery. Sadly, Bailey did not make it. He was half the size of the hand holding him, poor little thing. I never even met him. He died before I came back from my day off. I wonder what he would have been like.

I learned how to bottle feed with Bodhi and Bali. Every once in a while I ask them, “I bottle fed you, when you were little babies, do you remember?” Adopting them for putting up with my fumblings was the least I could do.

Christmas in the West Village, 2017

On a building a block away from my apartment. This building always has very tasteful, under-stated decorations. I took this coming home last night from another fabulous Loser’s Lounge.

Christmastime in the West Village

December 8th, 2017 Posted in Uncategorized | No Comments »

It’s going to snow tomorrow, I heard. I was thinking of doing my holiday window stroll tomorrow, but it looks like I will have to put that off to another day.

I may have more time soon because kitten season is over and my job at the ASPCA’s Kitten Nursery will be over very soon, and won’t resume until next spring (I’m looking into other opportunities at the ASPCA in the meantime).

Holiday Concert Choral Society of Grace Church

December 4th, 2017 Posted in Uncategorized | 2 Comments »

I’m in a picture of my choir!! AJ Stetson, of AJ Stetson Studios, took pictures of our concert last week, and I found myself in one. This shot features Joseph Charles Beutel, the bass/baritone soloist for the Bach Christmas Oratorio. I’m in the upper right hand corner (the tiny woman with bangs and glasses).

The second shot I posted shows our director, John Maclay, at the point in the concert when he turns around and conducts the audience during the Christmas carols.

Singing: Now more than Ever

December 2nd, 2017 Posted in Uncategorized | 4 Comments »

“In these days of political, personal, and economic disintegration, music is not a luxury, it’s a necessity; not simply because it is therapeutic, nor because it is the universal language, but because it is the persistent focus of our intelligence, aspiration, and goodwill.” -Robert Shaw

Last night was our first holiday concert performance, (the Choral Society of Grace Church) and this afternoon is our second and last. SOB. But we start up again in January.

We’re pretty much sold out, but they always hold aside a few tickets to sell at the door. If you’re in the city and looking for something to do, the concert is at 3pm, Grace Church, 10th Street and Broadway (but get there early if you want to get a ticket and a decent seat).

I took this on the way back from choir practice.
