The last time I was at this location was in 1965. I was 4 years old. The location is Flushing Meadows-Corona Park, which served as the site for the 1939-40 and 1964-65 New York World’s Fair. These images are the remains of the New York State Pavilion. The structures have been ignored and deteriorating for years, but recently the New York City Department of Parks and Recreation has embarked on a restoration project. The next summer memories post will be of another famous structure from the 1964-65 World’s Fair. Thanks for stopping by.

Fall is making it’s entrance here in the Midwest. Trees are beginning to show off, Costco has had Christmas trees on display for a few weeks now, and the end of the day knocks on our door a lot sooner than it did just a few weeks ago. It has been a busy time for me as well, so this is the first of a few posts from this past summer. We were in New York in August, so, first up, my favorite place: Jones Beach. Thanks for stopping by.
so i thought i don’t know that somehow we would be different so i thought you and i would be that story that others would love to tell we just seem to stay in one place choosing immobility you blame me i blame you standing in the pain with you brings no light we said i do we said i’ll stay come pain or joy in loss in light we’re in the wrong fight so i thought so let’s just look into each other eyes take each other’s hand and gently remember remember love remember i do remember the vows remember together remember forgive me remember love never gives up remember i love you
Another set of images from a long walk on a windy day at Jones Beach.
Grateful to be back in New York spending time with my elderly parents. Equally grateful to take long walks at Jones Beach. I love the winter shore.
We enjoyed a Thanksgiving Day walk at the always beautiful Jones Beach State Park.
Enjoyed greeting the new day at Jones Beach with my dear dad.
These are images from a recent road trip back to New York. We (my wife and I) made the trip to attend a memorial service and decided to head back to visit the area where we lived during our college days. We visited Briarcliff Manor, Tarrytown and Ossining, NY, and thoroughly enjoyed our trip down memory lane.
Regarding the images: ‘GW Bridge’ is short for the George Washington Bridge, connecting New Jersey and Manhattan. We take the Whitestone Bridge to go from the Bronx to Long Island. We enjoyed lunch at Horsefeathers, and the view of the amazing Tappan Zee Bridge, which connects Tarrytown, NY to Nyack, NY. The homes in Tarrytown and Ossining were 2 of the places we lived in after we were married while in college. It was fun taking in the sights of these old, beautiful towns!
Soul distancing: the practice of separating your soul from the day to day rush the deadline driven exhaustion the anxiety saturated social media the identity robbing expense of living for someone's approval the heart hardening fallout of unforgiveness the countless heart deadening diversions and instead connecting to whatever it is that helps you to s l o w d o w n a walk on the shore... a hike... sitting in stillness... prayer... coffee and a good book... you may discover what you are really living for and decide to change course you may discover what you really worship and decide to reach higher in the affections of your heart and mind you may discover an ocean of tears that were held back by your hardness becasue you need to be right or you won't let it go or you refuse to forgive or because you know you need to confess and make it right you may discover in the stillness the voice of God
