The Love of Bikes

I started riding a bike around seven years old. Freedom at last! You could not get me off my bike, I loved to ride without holding the handlebars. I think that is a metaphor for my life. I keep a bike in Atlantic City so can ride on the boardwalk at sunrise. That is one of my greatest passions, along with photographing bicycles in the city

Climb Every Mountain

When I was in fourth grade, I had a music teacher named Mr. Walton. I don't know how many times we sang this song, "Climb Every Mountain."
The words still resonate with me now as they did when I was 10 years old. I feel, following your dreams makes life worth living.
Climb every mountain, 
Ford every stream,    Follow every rainbow,     'Till you find your dream. 
A dream that will need       All the love you can give, 
Every day of your life       For as long as you live.

Washington Square Park Piano Man, New York City

Often, I would walk through Washington Square park and hear beautiful music. A man playing classical music behind a grand piano.  Classical music expertly played.  Who is this man? How did he learn to play so beautifully? How did he get a grand piano into the park? Why is he doing this?
His name is @"Colin Huggins."  Listen to his music, read his interesting story on his website:

The gift of art is a gift of love

It is easy to walk into a store and pull something off of the rack or on a shelf. Something that 1000 other people own. Why not give something that is original, created by an artist. Whether it's a piece of art that you can hang on the wall or a piece of handmade jewelry it says that you took the time and you are thoughtful enough to select something that you felt the person would love.
Please view my creations and see if there is something you think that you would love to give for the holidays.

Special Holiday Cards from New York

Christmas is my favorite time of year. I designed a collection of holiday cards. Hope you enjoy them. Please click on the link.

How to tell if you are buying a real silk scarf.

This is a time of year that we are buying gifts for our loved ones. Don't be fooled into buying from a vendor who tells you he has real 100% percent silk scarfs, when in reality it's only polyester.
