Welcome. Visit whenever you like. Read. Enjoy.  Post.

Having a website doesn’t make me a writer  any more than you’re visiting makes you read what’s written.  But, there’s always a but…

One exists to do something.  Meandering in the Garden of Eden didn’t do it for Adam. Dissatisfied at tending daffodils, he just had to bite the apple. Changed everything.  The written word hadn’t been invented back then. Just had Eve, fig leaves, a serpent,  two trees, and God.

During life’s seasons, I didn’t always want to write. Didn’t see much money it; had to raise a family; plus didn’t have much to say. Playing cornerback on the New York Jets,  pushing all-in on a high stakes poker pot, or being elected Mayor of New York City, were then on a young man’s bucket list.  Life’s winter has arrived.

For me, here and now  in cyberspace,  I chew slices of pepperoni pizza, swallow and spit out  words. Past dreams and experiences  may be found in a book, story, essay or poem created this year or next.  Words will change my existence, but certainly not the world’s.

  2. Dear Dad of Dads,
    Cheers to your stories, poems and novels. So I guess what I’m saying is- “Good job, Pop!”


    Your daughter, mother to Vivian.


    • Thanks Youngest Daughter of Daughters.
      You and Stas have created a beautiful child–Vivian Grace.
      I’m teaching her how to change her own diapers right now.
      She will be very independent, kind, and smart like her parents.
      Her story is yet to be told. “Good Job, Rachel.”
