If everyone all over the world really wants to be free... not under the control or in the power of anyone, to act as one wishes, and no longer to live confined.

Today I am feeling very grateful for everyone and everything I have including my health and happiness because wealth is overrated. 

I also thank Our Lord for a beautiful family, a wonderful career as my world seems full of growing magical options.

Over eight million New Yorkers live, work, and play here.

New York City is where the Hudson River meets the Atlantic Ocean. Manhattan island is densely populated and among the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural centers.

Eight years ago we were married on City Island - A Slice of New York City Paradise. A year earlier I asked Yirong to marry me at the local NYC beach during the annual July Fourth Fireworks celebrations and extravaganza.

Every one of us holds the power to heal. To have a real impact on the health of the people around you. We all do it daily.

This is the real reason why modern medicine is ripe for a change in perspective. Because each of us is a human being in search of kindness and understanding. Our body, mind, and spirits are one and the same.

The world's oldest news organization offers these close-up photos of this pandemic-era Olympic Games, you can imagine the world's most competitive athletes saying to their rivals: “Are you OK?” 

A KISS

Kissing was like cooking, everyone could do it, but only some made it delicious. If you practice you could become a big pastry chef.

Today, will the long sweet kiss be endangered and become a thing of the past with #Covid? Social distancing made the cheek kiss a much rarer greeting, and polling suggests it may stay that way. Some say good riddance, but others miss the warmth of a good kiss.

Last night, I listened, watched, and learned from two lovely ladies who were communicating over #WeChat about applying makeup.

They are both successful, professional, and well-educated mothers in the prime of their lives. One who is my wife has a finance degree and the other, her younger sister holds advanced degrees in public health. The video conversation was also about the time-consuming and expenses that are required in purchasing and storing cosmetics.

This weekend I received yet another residual check for my participation in the major motion picture, BULWORTH. The story of a truly suicidally and disillusioned liberal politician who puts a contract out on himself and takes the opportunity to be bluntly honest with his voters by affecting the rhythms and speech of hip-hop music and culture.

These early Marilyn Monroe images remind me of my cub reporter days. I covered a Miss Nude World Pagent at a Florida nudist camp.

In the news environment, I was seldom exposed to nude photography, films, or videos. Although one of my first assignments happened to be of young ladies baring all.

Marilyn Monroe didn’t agree to this shoot easily, she knew that during a lifestyle and morality of the era, posing for any naked images could ruin her career. She eventually signed the release for the pictures: “Mona Monroe.”
