February 28, 2015

Sometimes a dude talks to a woman just to talk to a woman.

We watched the kids on the playground years ago. Idle talk. How old’s yours? That’s a fun age. Yeah. Mine’s older. That’s her. Yeah, the one hanging by her toes and singing Pink songs. Sure, I’m proud, and surprised. It was an AC/DC day this morning….More

Ordinarily, I’d have just said, “Okay, have fun!” but something in his eyes made me stop and do a double-take. Something in the way he mentioned it to me signaled that he was being sheepish, nervous, even. When I questioned him further, I found out why he was being evasive: the event was being held on Mother’s Day weekend.More

New York:
December 12, 2010

Sitting in Central Park this weekend, I watched as a professional photographer brought her clients to a picture-perfect hideaway for the classic holiday card photo shoot. The little munchkins and their parents, all dressed up in holiday-wear, were positioned in just the right way and instructed to say “cheese” for the camera. Let’s face it. This photo is important. It represents an entire year of existence and growth for the family, as it is mailed out to close friends and family….More
