It was a most wonderful evening seeing and hearing Booker T Jones and his band which also featured his son Ted. Booker T read from his recently published book and talked about his life as well as playing wonderful music. He is a most interesting man and a wonderful musician. I was not aware of his musical studies at Indiana University early in his career with the MG's.
I've increasingly noticed young women out in the unseasonably cold weather in jeans with huge holes fashionably in them. I can understand that it is trendy to dress this way. I don't fully understand, though, why one would wear such attire in weather with a wind chill of around 10 degrees. I asked one such young woman, standing on the elevated train platform. She confirmed to me that she was cold dressed as she was. I then asked her my question. She told me that she preferred these jeans over her other "thin jeans". I prefer to be warm!
I very much value all the wonderful time I have with my delightful granddaughter! I will always regret that I didn't have as deep a connection with my son as he grew beyond the early times such as this.
I'm very prejudiced, but she is very cute! She is also charming!

BIG GIRLS DON'T CRY My father (Menachem) Imanuel Marx died Friday, November 13, 1964, when I was 13 years old. My mother woke my brother and I up with the news early that morning. We went to the hospital and saw him for the last time. I didn’t cry then. Daniel and I went to school that day. I didn’t tell anyone. Two days later at the funeral, I was still being “a man” (i.e. not crying). Until I was in my second men’s group around age 31, I didn’t allow myself to cry . I rationalized this by saying to myself: “ How does x compare with the death of my father ?”. I am self-identified as a Jewish man . Growing up that meant being intellectual and not emotional . Our Sabbath dinner was the only time in the week, when we couldn’t read at the table. While I was “schooled” on feelings through my men’s work (, most significantly through helping co-found Men Stopping Rape, Inc. in 1983), it was only several months ago that I was able to first
