  1. Some of the Good Times

    Sunday, May 21, 2023


    The prose reading was fantastico!  A packed room.  Really good readings by the four Prosettas.  The wine and snacks consumed.  Lots of hugs and applause.  One of my surprise guests was Lisa Harmon, a comic.  Sometimes, my poetry pals attend a comedy show I’m in.  But it is rare that a comedy friend attends a poetry or prose reading that I’m in.  Linda San Lucas and Jerry Shack did once, and now Lisa Harmon.  I was very pleasantly surprised.  I enjoy when my worlds come together.  

    Dorothy Cantwell, Mindy Matijasevic, Alys Kremer, and Susan Weiman


    Every seat was filled.  That felt so good.

    I don’t experience the different parts of my life meeting like George Costanza’s “worlds are colliding!”

    One of my long-time friends, Judy, lives in Staten Island, and I live in the Bronx.  She drives, but I don’t.  Typically when getting together, we’d meet in Manhattan.  However, she has driven to the Bronx MANY times. We used to attend a writing group in the Bronx many years ago.  She’s been to almost all of my comedy shows on City Island in the Bronx.  In the last week and a half, she was in the Bronx twice for different walking tours.  Then we got together afterwards.  Twice in a short period of time felt like such a treat.  I wish that were more often the case.


    My feline friend Mustache, who lives and works at the nearby discount store, continues to greet me with much affection and loud meows.  We have our affection sessions, which, for me, is therapeutic.  Sometimes, those moments are the highlight of my day.

    I just heard thunderous noise.  Not sure if it’s the weather or my upstairs pain-in-the-azz neighbor. 


    Please put June 2nd at 7:45pm on your calendar for comedy on City Island in the Bronx at The Artist, 249 City Island Avenue.  It’s going to be a really good show at only $15 cover, no minimum.  A hat gets passed around for contributions for the hilarious comics.  


    You are welcome to BYOB.  Laughter guaranteed.  😁 😂 😃 😄 😅 😆 😊

    Hey peepul!!!  Tuesday the 16th of May is the evening the Prosettas are holding a reading of short prose and memoir pieces at Jefferson Market Library from 6 to 8pm, and it is free!  425 6th Ave, New York, NY 10011.  There will be free refreshments, books for sale, and if you are interested, I will have my divorce t-shirts for sale with me (though not on display, so see me after the reading).



    Readers are (in reverse order of the reading): 

    Susan Weiman

    Dorothy Cantwell

    Alys Kremer

    Mindy Matijasevic

    The small group will deliver diverse voices of very different life experiences.


    What I would absolutely LOVE is if you decide to spend Friday, June 2nd on City Island.  There are wonderful restaurants on the island, and at 7:45, seating begins at THE ARTIST, 249 City Island Avenue for a wonderful comedy show, produced by me.  The terrific line-up:

    Hector Luis 

    TJ Meyers

    Donna Moran

    and me, of course, Mindy Matijasevic

    Laughter is guaranteed.  Cover $15; NO minimum.  You might be tempted by the light fare and delicious desserts by Jenny’s Sweets, but it is not required.

    Had a beautiful Friday with two close friends.  We enjoyed Lenoir Reserve.

     Mainly we enjoyed each other’s company.  That’s the best.  💞



    With so much love to CGG-M ❤❤❤

  3. Updates and Happenings

    Monday, May 1, 2023


        The “Listen to Your Mother” show was a very good experience.  One of my favorite humans attended the afternoon show.  I did not know that she had been there until the next day when she emailed me.  Thanks so much, Jaye. The hardest part for me was saying goodbye to the cast.  They came from all over the United States and Canada.  We all appreciated each other so much.  Not only our stories, but our spirits.


        For those of you in NYC on May 5th, 7pm, I will be sharing my poetry at “Dance of the Word” – an event by Evie Ivy that includes poetry, prose, music, and belly dancing.  Plus there will be wine and light fare.  A beautiful way to spend a Friday evening.  353 W. 48 Street, 2nd floor, Studio 3, NYC. ($15)


        These short videos have lifted my spirits recently and I hope they do it for you, too:


    After being told not to ...

    Men dancing

    If no one taught hate ...


        And on Tuesday, May 16th at 6pm, the “Prosettas,” of which I am a part, will be giving a prose reading at the Jefferson Market Library, 425 6th Ave, New York, NY 10011.  Powerful short prose pieces by a diverse group of voices.  FREE.


        I’d LOVE you to mark your calendars for June 2nd, 8pm, to get your behinds to my comedy show at The Artist on City Island.  It’s the most reasonably priced comedy show in NYC.  ($15 cover; NO minimum; lots of laughter.)  Details to come.


        Thank you for reading.
