Natalie Minewski, 83, sat patiently in the lobby of Woodland Pond retirement community in New Paltz, N.Y.

The lamp light shines too bright through my eyelids, waking me up before morning. I look over expecting my best friend Mike to be walking to the bathroom. Nope. He’s naked and pacing through the two-room studio apartment, talking on the phone. “Hellah! Hellah! Yeah, yeah, what’s good?”  Mike slurs. […]

Do Polaroid pictures come to mind at the mention of the name Andy Warhol? Most likely not; however, Warhol did experiment with this art form, as shown in a recent exhibition at the Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art (SDMA). “[It’s an] interesting element you wouldn’t expect-think Warhol, I thought screen […]

There I was, standing at the starting line with my iPod on pause and a lemon-lime Gatorade clenched in my left hand. Not in a million years did I ever think I would partake in the 5K run, Miles of Hope for Breast Cancer. I was suddenly transported back to […]
