Welcome back my friends to the column that never ends. (Sorry, been listening to some ELP lately) I don’t know about you, but I am SO ready for 2021! 2020 has been such a s**t show, at times you think you had enough, then WHAM, bend over and take so more. At times, when I […]

Necessity is the mother of invention. So they say. But maybe invention was birthed in a commune of causes; maybe it has many mothers. Is the invention of a sweet ass groove, a need fulfilled, or a desire expressed? Whatever causes us to create new from old, or better yet new from nothing, the people […]

Welcome to the Village of Waterford, NY, the home of the Tugboat Roundup Festival, Momentive, the Erie Canal System, and its one-of-a-kind vintage shop, Port of Call Consignments. Originally from Lansingburgh, NY and settled in Waterford, Rich Bronk, owner of Port of Call Consignments, lives, and breaths in his own vintage world. Bronk got the […]

I loved my work at The Free School. I started reading books by alternative education pioneers like John Holt, Ron Miller and A. S. Neill, the founder of the Summerhill School in England. I went to conferences on Alternative education and engaged in fascinating discussions about all of the different models. I learned how to […]

Toward the end of that schoolyear in 1984, I noticed a slight curve in my daughter’s spine.

Back in 1966, in the spring of my […]

The summer of 1983 ended too soon for us, but we were becoming well-established in this new home. I had enrolled Jessie in The Free School and, with the start of the school year, I was invited to spend as much time as I liked volunteering there with Justin in tow. Although, I had done […]

In 1983, we were excited about our new band. We called ourselves “Cosmo Rock” at that time. Although I had played in various music groups in my teens, this was the first time I had my own band. We had no idea how to run a band, but we made a good team. Paul was […]

Finally, in 1983, Paul and I had enough money to get an inexpensive apartment in the South End of Albany. It was on Green Street, in “The Pastures” area. The city had just finished putting up a new development with two- and three-story buildings made to look like brownstones for “section 8” housing. We were […]

Although we had anticipated a rough adjustment, it turned out to be rougher than we’d hoped. It was the end of the school year, and I had made sure that Jessie and Justin were both learning along the way. They had, in fact, learned some things that most adults haven’t yet learned about navigating your […]
