What Happened To All That Snow

Up in Westchester and certain parts of New Jersey, there are still thousands without electricity, and heat. With temperatures hovering around 35 degrees and lower at night, loss of power can be dangerous, not just uncomfortable. But for the most part, in New York City, the snowstorm the meteorologists “promised” didn’t materialize. The run on…

The Last 5

If you’d be interested in seeing the last 5 pictures on my phone… I am no professional image-maker but I find beauty in the candid shot. So when my friend sent me this one that her phone captured mistakenly when we met for a hot cocoa and a catchup on Friday, I saved it to…

Unburnable

Unburnable is a multigenerational story that is a play on one of the curses in the Bible: the sins of the father will be visited onto the children unto the third and fourth generation. In this story, the sins of the mother is visited onto her daughter’s daughter.  The mother is Matilda, the dark skinned…

The Reveal

It can be pretty expensive to live in New York City but if you’re patient and creative, there are also lots of free activities you can indulge in. This weekend, I spent an hour or so perusing the collection at The Studio Museum of Harlem – admission is free on Sundays. As you might imagine,…

Appearances Matter

I used to work at a company where we often went out to do field visits. We would don our safety vests and set off in the company car to whatever faraway location we had business at. Often, our trip would last for hours, and we would need to stop for lunch. My supervisor, who…

The Last Few Hours of September

I’m not ready for September to be over. I would do my month recap today but I am hanging on to the last few hours of the best month of the year so indulge me. Yesterday, I took a tour of my favorite city with one of my favorite people and it was awesome. We…

I Love NY

(I found this love letter I wrote to my city some time ago and thought I would share it with you)     The first time I visited New York as a tourist was 14 years ago. I was living at home in Jamaica but had come to see my friend, Novia, and be a part…

A More Perfect Union

Is there A More Perfect Union than running and a fall backdrop in Central Park? If so, I can’t think of it right now.      I started off running and kept stopping to take photos.  Pics of trees and leaves blown in the wind…    … pics of leaves at my feet…    … pics…

Past and Future

Last week, my goals were many and about half of them are still on my list this week because I didn’t accomplish them (deep sigh). You might remember I had planned to: Get to the gym 3 times  – I only went once. Details of my workouts below Complete week 1 of a 3 week…

Swim, Bike, Run

My first triathlon happened on Shnday and I didn’t even have to pay a race fee. On Sunday mornings, I have a one hour swim class and since we had missed the past two weeks, we spent the entire hour doing laps in the pool. I went to a meeting and then headed to spin…

There’s Always Something Different In New York City

Today, we had a health fair at my church and I was promoting our running club. Remember a couple months back when we would run as a group on Sunday mornings? Well, summer vacation is over and the running club is back in business. If you are in NYC and want to join a group…
