5 Dimes…

Kevin close upJust having some random thoughts thinking back over the first 50 years of my life. Some of the obvious highlights were holding my daughter Michelle and son Kevin moments after they were born. Visiting Crater Lake and the Badlands-two amazing while completely different landscapes. Hanging out with Muhal Richard Abrams listeningto his piano playing and talking to him about stuff. Eating a Nathan's hot dog, Yonah Shimmel knish, most Brooklyn pizza , and Lundy's: anything on their wonderful menu. Seeing the Grand Canyon for the first time with Taiwanese business friend who simply said, "Hallelujah!" checking out the Triple Crown of Surfing in Oahu on the North Shore. Too many meals in NYC Chinatown to count. Most of Robert DeNiro's early fims. Being loved by my family and friends even when I make that very challenging. Having the opportunity for some more...

    Seems like a good list of memories, man. Here's to 50 more years of transcendent moments.

    5-0 and "freezin" not very auspicious omen for me?? 😀 Good thing I'm not superstitious. Looking forward to next batch myself.
