We were Summer Kids!

We were Summer Kids!Life is complicated, messy, wonderful, challenging, joyful, an opportunity, a school and it is truly what we make it. Since my beloved brother Kenny passed almost three months ago I have been dealing with my grief. This summer is going by quickly and I have not had any fun. I remember Kenny and I growing up – we were Summer kids!

My brother Ken and I always loved the summer. Our mom worked hard to create a Summer vacation for us when we were kids at Rockaway Beach in Queens, NY. Since our parents worked full time mom would line up friends and family to take care of us at the bungalow just a few blocks from the beach. Mom and dad would then come down on weekends to join us.

It didn’t matter to us who stayed during the week at the bungalow to take care of us as long as they were good cooks and they didn’t cramp our style. The day would begin with a great breakfast like French toast. After breakfast we would race to the beach in our flip flops with our friends to get a good spot close to the water. Blanket, beach umbrella, beach towels, sandwiches, drinks, baby oil with iodine in it and we were good to go. Diving under the waves, body surfing in to shore, keeping our eyes on the jetty, making sure we didn’t see schools of sharks out in the distance, we were fearless because we were Summer kids!We were Summer Kids!

In the Summer we were at our best. We knew we had it good. Raised in the Bronx, New York, a lower middle income family with 5 kids with our hard working parents scraping by financially. Mom sacrificed to save up the money to rent the sparsely furnished, cold water-only bungalow with an outdoor shower for about 10 other families. To us it was heaven – a true oasis from the hot city streets of the Bronx.

After the beach we would race back to the bungalow court. The first one back would get a hot shower from the sun beating down on the water pipes all day. By the time the 2nd kid got in the shower the water would be cold again. The big kids always got there first. How could we complain though? We knew we had it made in the shade! We were Summer kids!

Now my buddy Kenny is gone and it hurts like hell. Yet I am forever blessed to have all these wonderful memories of us together especially in the Summer when we were happy and free. We had each other, we had fun in the sunshine on the beach for we were Summer kids!

Intuitive Readings Saugerties NY – Reiki Saugerties NY – Meditation Saugerties NY

For more than 32 years I have been helping many people from all walks of life and across the world, including India, China and England. Some clients prefer to come see me in person for an Intuitive Reading.

However, the majority of my clients call me for phone sessions. Intuition is unlimited as God is unlimited so it doesn’t matter whether you are in the same room with me or in Hong Kong! My intention is the same – to serve as a channel of clarity and healing to assist you in all areas of your life. Doing this work makes me truly happy and I blessed to be able to help people and do what I love.

When you set up an Intuitive Reading in Saugerties or a phone session with me, it’s best to write down your questions ahead of time. This helps focus your intention on what it you want guidance for in your life.

At the beginning of your Intuitive Reading, I go deep into a meditative state and ask Spirit to allow me to be a clear and pure channel of love, healing and guidance for you. The answer to each question flows through me in words and pictures and the information received is spiritual in nature, yet practical for every day life.
