The Big Questions Game!
Link up the Real Person to the Real Question Really Asked in the Last Couple of Days!
A. Should we go to the ER? B. Do you think she has pneumonia or is it just a cold? C. What are you going to do if you get sick or injured? D. Do you want extra time off for your birthday? E. Where is our house? F. Is your father still alive?
1. G., the Home Attendant 2. Me 3. Former boss 4. Florence 5. Old friend 6. Me
MY PRIVATE CONEY presents IT WAS HER NEW YORK, the short stories that accompany the work-in-progress video and photo collection of the same name (myprivateconey.com - media link - IT WAS HER NEW YORK). The stories and the media explore the tender rubble that holds both my mother, Florence's and New York's soul as one disappears into old age and the other into gentrification. All are real observations and/or experiences with very little tall-tale telling.
Except when it makes the story better.
