Taking a Pause to Remember and Reflect

(reposting last year’s post, on this anniversary)

As we have done previously:

Try to remember the kind of September

When life was slow and oh, so mellow.

Try to remember the kind of September

When grass was green and grain was yellow.

-“Try to Remember,” from The Fantasticks.

Another photo I had taken a couple of years ago (maybe last year or two ago?).

 

(I took the photo above at the Brooklyn Promenade, a couple of years ago. That framed picture is still there, do check it out if you’re in the neighborhood. — ssw15).

Happy Lunar New Year!

From us at triscribe: happy Chinese New Year! (or Lunar New Year; or whatever you celebrate: it is something to celebrate).

Time Out NY has some listings of the events in town.  Here’s a link to Time Out NY’s Chinatown guide; it’s pretty decent, I daresay.

Museum of Chinese in America (MoCA) had their family festival today.

New York Public Library has a nice tumblr post on the Lunar New Year, and noted that the Chatham Square branch has a unique oral history event for the Chinese New Year.

A lot of stuff going on, including… um, that thing called the Super Bowl.  But, whatever it is, have fun!
