forever young: fox chapel hs class of 2017

May God bless and keep you always
May your wishes all come true
May you always do for others
And let others do for you
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May you grow up to be righteous
May you grow up to be true
May you always know the truth
And see the lights surrounding you
May you always be courageous
Stand upright and be strong
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

May your hands always be busy
May your feet always be swift
May you have a strong foundation
When the winds of changes shift
May your heart always be joyful
And may your song always be sung
May you stay forever young
Forever young, forever young
May you stay forever young.

Bob Dylan (1974)

pittsford sprints

our first race of the season! / 1200 meters on the erie canal \ it was like our channel at washington’s landing / they also have what looks like our railroad bridge \ and instead of residences, there were businesses along the walking|bike path laid out in a touristy fashion / this is pittsford ny, near rochester, really nice place \ worth a visit or stopover if going upstate

art all night 2017

20th art all night \ 4/29-30 / 36th street Pittsburgh

there were a number of issues oriented artworks this year at art all night, such as autism <left of jimi hendrix> / thrilled to see artwork on the tardis & bob ross! \ expected to see some trump protest art & indeed there were six of them

soup for syria

soup nourishes body & soul / it comforts & provides solace \ it provides community & an outstretched helping hand / as in the folktale “stone soup” & the ubiquity of soup kitchens in both good & bad times

“soup for syria” is a fundraising effort / here’s hoping that a peaceful, diplomatic solution is reached & ends the suffering of the Syrian people

korean food

after doing college admission events at stony brook, headed to koreatown in manhattan for some great korean food <kunjip, very close to penn station> / “banchan” the little side dishes that you get before your main meal is like getting many treats \ my companion’s favorite was the pickled radish kimchi <kkadugi> / mine were the seaweed & mung bean sprouts \ the korean bbq was wonderful – tender & perfectly marinated!
