I’ll always remember the way she first told me her story.

Early on in our time together, back when my partner and I were still just two people going on initial dates and getting to know each other, I remember the way she first opened up to me about her life story in detail.

I remember her courage and confidence as she described, so matter-of-factly mind you, how she was born three months early, small enough that her father cupped her in his hands. About how the doctors were pessimistic.

About how she spent most of her first year on Earth in an incubator in intensive care. How she joked about how her lungs could’ve really used those three more months. “BPD. Bronchopulmonary dysplasia,” she said casually, in between bites of a shared nacho plate. “Basically, my lungs kind of suck,” she shrugged. “It’s not a big deal. …

A New Chapter

Six days into 2021, allow me to be among the last to wish you, happy new year.

I do sincerely wish you a happy year, even if my Wednesday schedule has me a bit belated, and I wish you a safe, healthy, secure, and prosperous year, too. …

Opportunities

It’s always nice when I can find some opportunities to write about sports.

As of last night, NBA basketball is officially back, with my Brooklyn Nets facing the Golden State Warriors, and an all-L.A. battle late last night with the Los Angeles Clippers facing the defending champion Los Angeles Lakers. The other 26 teams play their respective opening games tonight, and we are off to the races. …

Hey, folks. I hope you are reading this with your power intact, wherever you are.

The biggest winter storm of the season so far has been hitting a big chunk of the country the last couple of days and today into tomorrow is supposed to be the worst of it in the northeast, from PA to NJ to NY and New England. …

Endurance

This Thursday at sundown is the beginning of Hanukkah, the annual eight-night-and-day Jewish festival of lights (that seems to have nearly as many English-language spellings as it does candles on the Menorah/Hanukkiah).

In a normal year, (without a raging viral pandemic that continues to get worse by the day), I would be spending part of Hanukkah with my parents, who are currently in the final stages of selling their house and retiring (mazel tov!). …

Happy

If you’re reading this on Wednesday morning, I may still be covered in flour.

Otherwise, I’m probably cleaned up by now. That’s because today is a big day. Today is my lovely partner’s birthday. Part of our celebration plans today involve baking my hit banana bread (as featured in Issue #8 of The Good Press).

So hopefully, by the time most people read this, the banana bread is already in the bag. Or the oven, as it were. …

Gratitude

However you’re spending Thanksgiving and the rest of the holiday season this year, I hope your holiday season is a safe, warm, healthy, and happy one.

As I wrote last week, my partner and I will not be traveling for Thanksgiving weekend this year; we’re having a much more scaled-down Turkey Day here at her parents’ Poconos country home, in a four-person pod with her parents. We’ll eat well, even if we’re not eating with everyone we normally eat with on Thanksgiving weekend. …

Shelter

Like many, I’d like to live my life unencumbered by the restrictions of a global pandemic and public safety response protocols that have made America feel a little less vibrant, a little more distant, a little more muted than ever before.

But what I’d like isn’t important. …
