Daily Press and Little Skips East

 

Good News! Submitted some of my photography to The Daily Press. Hopefully the owner will choose one if not all to display on the coffee shops walls. I’m excited!!

Happiness! I’m so glad that I moved to Brooklyn back in November 2012. I did not know but God knew that my photography would develop and begin to take off. I believe that it was God’s Will for The Daily Press to open right across the street from my home. The Owner is so friendly and open to the community. A really nice guy.

 

Now many of you know I like to do my Soulful Struts on my days off. Provides both exercise and opportunities to take photos. I enjoy walking around my Brooklyn neighborhood. You never know what you will find and who you will meet. From my Advantage point I live in Brownsville and can easily walk to Bed-Stuy or Bushwick within minutes. Yesterday during my Bushwick travels I came upon LIttle Skips East at 1643 Broadway. Purchased a giant chocolate chip cookie, introduced myself and made some small talk with one of the workers. I noticed that their theme is Coffee Art Love. The Key word for me being Art. Hmmm…. Another potential place to showcase my photos. Heck it won’t hurt to ask. You can be sure I will be paying more visits to Little Skips East!

You write your wishes/prayers on the Lantern then float it in a body of water. I’ve done various volunteer activities with this Buddhist Temple.  I don’t attend as much as I used to but I still get together with my Japanese friends for Buddhist services, chanting and meditation.

 

 

My Greatest Wish is to spend more time with my brother Stephen who is an Awesome Autism Guy! ♡ ♡ ☆ ☆

Where did you live when you were in the third grade of school?  Is it the same place or town you live now?

In your opinion, list some places that are great for shopping?

Jamaica Avenue. Downtown Jamaica, Queens. Today I scored two winter sweaters for only $3 a piece. That’s $6.00 of warmth!!

Green Acres shopping mall located in Long Island, New York

Fulton Street Brooklyn New York

Lord & Taylor located near 37th or 38th Streets on Fifth Avenue.

Actually there are many funky, fun, fascinating places to shop in New York but those are the once that come to mind immediately.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

I’m Grateful for this wonderful email message that I received from my brother Stephen yesterday. Here is the message. Please don’t mind the spelling. I think Stephen is doing quite well for an Autism Guy. He is wonderful.

Good morning sister, hi how are you doing today. I got your massage and will make you another picture, and bring it when i come to see you again.

 I really like the knight costume, I wore it to the party and my fiends liked it  i had a good time.😎
I’m grateful for the fun that Stephen and I had at today’s Halloween party held at AABR which is a Training Center for Developmentally Disabled Adults located in Jamaica, Queens, NY.

Rain Walk


 

https://weather.com/weather/today/l/Brooklyn+NY+11233:4:US

Decided to take an evening constitutional. Fortified myself with the other half of my Subway sandwich, collected my umbrella and small travel purse, keys, Metro Card in case I got too tired and had to take the bus, put on a light jacket and of course made sure that I went to the bathroom before neighborhood striding!!

Stuck to Fulton Street which is a major thoroughfare in Brooklyn. Plenty of bright street lights and folks are out and about. Many are returning from shopping, visiting friends and/or family or on their way home from work.

Started out at 9:30 pm. Most of the rain had subsided but I was still anointed by rain drops descending from the trees. Continued my trek from Rockaway Avenue a little past Utica Avenue and made my turn around at Boys & Girls High School. Took half an hour to get to Utica so that’s why I reversed my course so I could be back home within an hour.

I accomplished my goal plus I had the pleasure of a resurgence serene divine essence from Heaven.  Now when I say peace and serenity I do not mean quiet. I Live in Brooklyn specifically the Inner City.  As soon as I stepped out the door I was greeted by wailing EMS and police sirens!! My neighborhood is loud!  I mean high volume. However I’m used to all types of loud noises. I’ve learned to sleep through Be-Bop, Doo-Wop, Hip-Hop, Reggae, Block Parties, Noisy neighbors, etc….  Yes I do have insomnia but that probably comes from inner turmoil and stress.

The warm caress of showers brought internal Blessings.  I was Walking in the Rain with the Ones I Love = Me, Myself and I!!  Yes I Feel So Good!!  In this Warm Soft Autumn Rain I Reign…..
