Yesterday was the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Jackie Robinson Museum in Lower Manhattan. I started working with the museum in early 2020. We know what happened. Two years of delays. Then I spent much of this spring back at it. As the New York Times wrote this week, the museum is about a lot more than baseball. One of my favorite parts of the exhibit is the fan mail. A line from this letter gets me every time: “If your batting average never gets any higher than .100 and if you make an error every inning, if I can raise my boy to be half the man that you are, I’ll be a happy father.” The museum opens to the public September 5.

On July 27 I’ll be presenting a creative workshop that’s a mashup of personal writing and abstract painting called Autobiograffiti. No experience necessary. It’s all about self-expression and spending a fun evening out. I’ll be running this workshop with an extraordinary artist, Susan Gatti, at Firefly Artist Gallery in Northport. The gallery, incidentally, was named Best on Long Island 2022.

I love brownstone architecture, so I was happy to write about these darlings of the real estate market for Sothebys.com. As one person said, when you walk inside a brownstone, “You feel like you’re walking into the past.”

Back on assignment for the Jackie Robinson Museum, which will be opening in September in New York City. The museum not only chronicles Robinson’s legacy in baseball but his trailblazing achievements in the fight for civil rights.

Feedback from my newest client on our first project together, a copy overhaul of a corporate website. While they’re still putting the finishing touches on the design, the client is already getting mileage out of the copy by repurposing it for social media.
