Jewish Childhood Blog - I Have Always Been a Believer
Wednesday, 16 April 2014 21:58

When I was a kid, I always felt that I was a winner. I mean, contests, to save the most string, to make a ball of aluminum foil for the war effort and when I got older, Publisher's Clearinghouse. In fact I felt this so much that when I sold my house in Los Angeles and was renting an apartment while building my Santa Fe house, I wrote Publisher's Clearing House a letter telling them, "I have moved and I know I will be a winner, so here is my new address for the next 8 months and after that, my Santa Fe Address”.

So what can I say? When I got an email this morning that offered me a chance to meet, Hillary, Bill and Chelsea Clinton in New York on May 1st, I had to send in a donation, small that it was in comparison to the possible categories of $500, $250 and so on. Well suffice it to say, mine was quite a bit smaller but I guess even in my troisiome age, I can still believe in magic and the power of my luck.

So if you happen to live in or near New York, if my luck holds out in this effort, I will be in New York May 1st for a week or so. If not, and I don't win, well, who knows our paths could still cross.

If and when I do get to New York, I would love to see my cousin Martin. We only seem to see each other for funerals and my bat mitzvah and since all of our elders have transitioned and I don't plan to be a Bat Mitzvah again in this lifetime. I do miss him and would love to see him.

At the end of March this year, I went to Los Angeles for my cousin Elizabeth's (Lizzy's) wedding which I wrote about in my last Blog.

So I'll keep you posted on my potential trip to New York and meantime, thanks for reading my Jewish Childhood Blog. Don't forget, I would love to hear from you so write if you wish.
