I recently returned from my third trip to New York City, and had such a fantastic time (again) that I feel compelled to blog for my first time about it. I've travelled some of the world, and still have more to see.  I've seen major cities across four continents, but New York City captures my heart...

Kathi, my daughter Laura, and I are staying here in New York City with the Jewish Don of New York Restaurateurs, Kathi’s cousin Alice Cutler. Going out to eat with Alice is serious business.

When first I moved to the city I knew I'd relish life boxed inside those walls. I knew that poems would come and that life would be lived with intensity. I knew so much of what would happen but so little of the particulars. One can imagine at the sea that the waves will be wet and that the sky...

Today, on the eighth anniversary of 9/11, many channels ran specials, some of which I DVR'ed. After watching one tonight, taped in 2002, interviewing photographers who captured images that day, watching unbelievable images documented that day, I felt compelled to write something - if not to honor...

So here it is, 2009. It is not a Tuesday with the clearest warm and welcoming sky. I woke up and listened to the AM radio. I heard there was a fire. I called my friend, tried to tell her to get out. I never reached her, but she got out. Most of the people I know did get out and a few did not. Of...
