I received an email a few weeks ago from filmmaker Emrhys Cooper (“Trophy Boy”), informing me that he was working on another movie and planned to be shooting much of it in Sullivan … more
It’s a colloquialism, and I looked it up to make sure that I was using it properly: “Meaning to reveal facts previously hidden,” Wikipedia states, “from a specific target … more
As a general rule, I like to think that I have my finger on the pulse of the arts and leisure world in the Upper Delaware River region, but with the planet having tilted on its axis of late, … more
While the above title is the catchphrase for the CBS summer reality show “Big Brother,” and I’ve yet to miss (don’t judge!) any of the show’s 21 seasons, have no … more
Yet lately, it’s been all about the past. more
Yes, I’ve said that before, but this time I really mean it. Believe it or not, as of Monday, November 25, Dharma the Wonder Dog is now 10-years old. I’m still in denial, especially since … more
Am I the only one who lies awake in the pre-dawn hours, fidgeting, worrying, tossing and turning? These days, I have more questions than answers and I’m upset more often than not. I’m … more
In my never-ending quest for out-of-this-world entertainment, I am always on the lookout for a good place to land, scouring the countryside in search of the unusual. Still a bit sullen over having … more

That’s right, it’s a week later and I’m still searching for the “silver lining” alluded to in my last column. To that end, I’ve been hitting the road, taking long, … more
I’m not naïve—I understand the “circle of life” and that all living things eventually die. It’s the fragility that troubles me; the mere notion that life as we know it can come to an abrupt halt, suddenly and without warning, niggles at me and keeps me awake at night. more

For those of you who’ve read my column before, you’re probably aware that I write about my mother a lot. And for those who’ve turned the page until now? Fair warning: I write about … more
