About Longevity…

4 Apr

I may be fast approaching the prize(?) / as the oldest active RealEstate Broker / A dubious accolade that may speak to the idea of healthy minds contributing to healthy bodies / Running up and down stairs in Brownstones and Subways for 40 plus Years / rushing to appointments / negotiating with toughminded Buyers and Sellers has been great for the heart / In many ways. 

(Having been a Valentine baby gave me an edge admittedly).

Recently, however, I believe I have found the true answer to longevity…. I have become a Jazz Singer!!!  Check out my recent gig on YouTube.  Singing is the answer to breathing deeply and feeling glad and peaceful (also soulful and loving).


Party News from Carolines 75th.
Caroline, Mother of two came to then unknown SOHO in the sixties with her boys.  She’s a true inspiration.  Bought 2500 sq ft loft on wondrous Wooster street for under 50K .  Painted, etched, influentially engaged in NYC’s Avant Garde music scene, Helped initiate and sustain the famous “KITCHEN.”   Still actively playing her keyboard (quite nicely. I might add).  And of course, still gorgeous without any surgery!

Fabulous Tapas restaurant radiated with positivity, as 65 friends arrived bearing gifts and praises.  The food, like the tunes, kept coming one tasty dish after another, 25 in all!  Paul Meyers’ guitar reigned supreme with Brazilian Jazz.  Accompanied by the Jazz vocalists Francine Whitney, and Suzanne Brose.(ME)  🙂 

Songs were sung. Sons and others told sunny stories, funny and amazing.  Parties like this one definitely deserve mentioning.  75 years of living everyday as a Birthday Buffet, la Belle Vie  celebrated with a Brazilian soundtrack.
