Throwback Thursday

Throwback Thursday

My sister reworked this old picture from the VERY early 80’s (possibly even late 70’s) our brother took from our old fire escape on Delancey St in New York City. I know it’s not as clear and perfect as the photos a person can take nowadays with the cheapest camera phone but I still love it. I love all the old cars coming off the bridge, the old stores that no longer exist, and the view of the Williamsburg that is such a part of the New York landscape today as it was back then. We spent so much time on that fire escape, I wonder how we didn’t fall down and die. If anyone saw a kid just hanging out on one today, the cops would be there ordering him or her to get their butt down faster than you can say “Stop & Frisk!” Ahhh…some things change but it’s always fun to get it on film!

Here’s to Throwback Thursday!

Stay inspired!

Dona Marta’s Inchiladas

My sister’s ridiculously funny work about a 30-year old trying to juggle her 70-year old loan shark mom, her posse of leg-breaking biddies, a parade of jaw-dropping blind dates, all while trying to find a decent guy in a city of 8 million people and keeping her mother from making her ‘Inchiladas of Doom.’ Her writing will definitely make you laugh out loud!

This is a work in progress (so not yet completed), but can be read for free on!


Dona Marta's Inchiladas

A cover that I shot for a short story I’m working on for Wattpad. My sister, Wendy Nelson, has inspired me in so many ways and to be honest–its a bit of a humorous look at things.

What happens when you’re in your mid-thirties, single and your mom is one of the biggest, small-time crime bosses on the Lower East Side? Did I mention she’s a senior citizen with her own posse of dangerous old ladies that’ll crochet you a duvet and maybe break your fingers if you can’t pay the Vig on your loan? I invite you to read a little and you might just might get a good laugh 😉

Please note, its uploaded in installments and is NOT yet a completed work (July 31st, 2013)
