PROGRAMMING NOTE from the Author and Archivist


So obviously I just stopped blogging on this platform. I'll get back to it eventually. But in the meantime, I am recording/micro-blogging over on Instagram.

The last few years have been busy and … challenging:

- 2015 Happened.
- 2016 was ... Well. Let's call it The Lost Year. (Obviously words failed me.)
- 2017 about broke me. Literally. Mentally.
AND ...
- 2018 has been ridiculous, proving 2017 was just a warm up. (Good thing I was already broken so it couldn't hurt as much.) #2018TrashCanFire

I kinda want a do-over of some of the last few years. But life doesn’t work that way.


Bear with me.

Photo of the Day: Knocking on Knickerbocker


as of a visit Monday, February 20, 2017

Vestiges of the 'olde' New York can still glimpsed in the corners and shadows if you only look or know where to look. Hints: ends of platforms, tucked up out of sight, and/or disguised as the years have 'progressed' by. Where once a door may have opened to a glamorous hotel, now commuters jockey for a spot to cram on a subway shuttle and try to ignore the rats frolicking in the trash on the tracks feet below.

Auntie Nettie's Merchandise 2017 - Taking Heart cont'd

Sometimes it is okay to take a unfinished project that was started for a loved one, made with love, to show your love, and then use it to spread some love.

After three years as a UFO, it was time to unravel it and let it go. 🏳 of defeat. I surrender!


(Sorry baby niece who is no longer a baby niece.)
