  1. A Mix of Life's Ingredients

    Saturday, October 19, 2019

    Hey readers!  I’m on the mend though I received a call from the NYC 
    Dept. of Health who needed to ask many questions because I apparently contracted the legionella bacteria.  It is the bacteria of the Legionnaires disease.  Yes, I was freaked out.  The Dept. of Health woman was reassuring that the strong antibiotic I was on works for both pneumonia and legionella (an atypical form of pneumonia).  I do feel a lot better.

    Until I get the okay from the doctor on October 24th, I am not calm about this.  I am so open to another round of the killer antibiotics if that will make me feel convinced the legionella is gone.  I may join those people who walk around outside with a mask over their mouth and nose.  I’m not contagious.  However, I am susceptible to other people’s germs.

    I have wanted to get back to my normal life and made plans accordingly.  
    Then I realized I was pushing it.  I canceled a number of plans.  However, Saturday morning I did make it to a memoir poetry writing workshop.  It is free.  It is typically very good quality, and it was four blocks away (Poe Park Visitors' Center) on a decent weather day.  The Bronx Council on the Arts provides wonderful services to the artist community.  I am so glad I went.  It was good for my head, heart, and all other parts.  I have homework!  And I am glad I have homework.  I don’t lack stories to write, but I often need a push to write them.  This is perfect for me.  It goes on for 3 more weeks.  I am thrilled.

    For those of you who like to plan in advance, I am putting together 
    another comedy show at The Artist on City Island on December 28, 2019, 8pm.  Put that on your calendar.  I deliver.

    Much love to CGG-M

      Glad you're on the mend. Congrats on another show at The Artist!

    2. Thanks Lisa. I just need to feel sure I'm free of the infection. It would be really great if I could be done with the f'ing cigarettes. Regarding the show, it will be winter, so I have a lot of work to do to fill that place up again. I was thrilled with the turnout last time.

      I'm so glad you are getting better and help ward off the disease with care. Also, glad you can go out and improve writing skills. I need that also but Bronx is far away from Brooklyn Gowanus Canal.

    5. Thank you Craig! So nice to hear from you.

    6. Thanks Susan. Appreciated.
