The Divide

I went out Saturday afternoon to get some pen refills at Bromfield Pen Shop (yeah, I could have ordered them from Amazon, but I needed to get out). I parked my car on Charles Street, which divides the Public Garden and Boston Common, and walked a little over half a mile to the shop. After […]

Looking Back at Sam Abell

This past weekend, I decided to take some time for myself and do a little street photography. After easily finding a parking along Boston’s Public Garden (not an easy thing to do, usually), I stepped out of the car and saw my first shot: a woman, on the other side of the park fence, sitting […]

The Fourth 2018

Jonathan spent almost a week with me during his July 4th vacation, and, on the 4th, I took him to the city to ride the swan boats before taking back to his residence. It was a very bright day, but, amazingly, it was quiet. There were no crowds to speak of. Nothing going on out […]

The Old is New

As I sit in this coffee house, listening to coffee house music and watching trendy coffee house patrons read their newspapers and trendy magazines, sipping their trendy coffee drinks, like my grande, extra shot, blonde flat white, and having trendy conversations, I see a tendency towards a simpler life style. In reality, it seems a […]

A Rainy-er Good Time

After receiving a call from a friend who was visiting Seattle on business, Carline decided to book an impromptu flight to see her. Obviously, I tagged along since it gave me an opportunity to hang out with my friend Matt Gore (https://www.lightandmatter.org/staff-contributors-2/).  Carline and Amrita met at the Isha Hatha Yoga Institute in Coimbatore, India, […]


I’ve always been fascinated with ancient civilizations. This fascination started around 11 years of age. Our recent vacations were centered around visiting ruins and connecting with our past (but mostly eating). My biggest obsession was with pyramids, especially after reading the book, published in 1976, titled Pyramid Power by Max Toth and Greg Neilsen[1]It was in […]

It’s Been A While…

After 28 years, we finally went back to Puerto Rico. We weren’t supposed to go there. We were headed to Peru, but the flights were booked and we couldn’t get on standby. The Puerto Rico flight was quite empty. We arrived in San Juan and stayed at the Ciqala Luxury Suites; a quaint, but nicely […]


As I sit in solitude stirring my coffee in a train car waiting to depart soon, several young men approach me and ask “Is this going to North Station?” “Yes.”, I replied, “It’ll be the last stop.” The group of men were wearing Patriots apparel, most obviously celebrating the Patriots’ win at the Super Bowl […]

Bye Bye Miss American Fly…

Carline and I recently took a trip to New York City to renew her car inspection (the car is registered in New York). We also had the windshield replaced due to a weird crack that manifested suddenly a few months ago, and at the same time, we visited Farah, who has an apartment in Harlem. We […]
