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! ♡ ♡ ☆ ☆
Actually I had two favorite subjects. English and History or back then it was called Current Events.
If you could have a servant come to your house every day for two hours, what would you have them do?
Where did you live when you were in the third grade of school? Is it the same place or town you live now?
Third Grade. I would have been age 9. I Lived on 115th Road in St. Albans, Queens, NY. I no longer live there. Now I Live in Brownsville, Brooklyn, NY. The below photo taken March 1964 is Stephen and I sitting on the stoop of our home. I was 5 Stephen would have been 3.
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.

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.
