First Cousin Once Removed

Alan Berliner's new film, “First Cousin Once Removed,” documents the decline and the death of his cousin, the poet and scholar Edwin Honig.

I was fortunate to see a shorter version of this film a few years ago at The New York Film Festival... and it is moving and brilliant. It is currently available on HBO at On Demand.

The filmmaker Alan Berliner is my friend and he was the inspiration for all of my work at my many blogs. I wrote about my meetings with Alan here:

Picture for a Saturday Afternoon

As I was walking home from the George Billis Gallery, I passed an outstanding wall mural on the corner of West 25th Street and 10th Avenue:

Here's a Google maps street view screen shot of the mural:

I went to this stunning gallery today and the artist was present. I was able to take a photo of Ken Delmar at his exhibit.

The Conclusion

"He hates you because you are doing all he wants to do and is incapable of doing. You cam up and bravely do live broadcasts and are brilliantly funny, your comebacks are hilarious, you make fun of yourself and have excellent self-esteem, you write and express yourself eloquently, you create humorous cartoons... and he would love to do all that and can't. You make him feel inferior and he hates you for those reasons."

Early Childhood Education

My mother taught me from an early age how to deal with bullying. Classy? I think not. But it worked and I am now able to not let any harassment impact me in any way and I have excellent self-esteem. I can walk around thinking I am the "cat's meow" when other's may think I am ineffable.
