Me and my son Miles early in my being a single parent (the 1970s) in Manhattan.

  Me and Flynn in Jersey early 2000s.

My sons and me several years ago before I left Jersey.

Three generations of graybeards. My son Miles Lally, my dear old friend Peter Case, and me. Hadn't seen Peter in person in years so was delighted when he came through yesterday and Miles got a selfie of us. Deep love all around. Peter brought his latest record album (on vinyl): DOCTOR MOAN, which has a song on it based on a poem of mine "Give Me Five Minutes More" (inspired by a song popular in my 1940s boyhood).

Posted this before. Me and best friend poet and traditional Irish musician and songwriter Terence Winch and Joe Biden (on the cover of Irish America) I guess in the late 1980s or early 1990s. Joe and I were born in the same year, 1942, but didn't look it then.

One of my favorite artists (and friend) Susan Bee's take on a scene from the film "Passion" which caught my eye and continues to.

My youngest child, Flynn, when he was five and his mother and I had just separated and he was splitting his time between us in Jersey, and in his twenties, goofing at the camera in our local Jersey coffee shop as I was beginning to have as yet undiagnosed Parkinson's symptoms and he was beginning to be my part-time caretaker (his mother and others lending a hand too) until I moved to the Berkshires in '21. He still comes up on visits and helps out. I sure have a lot  to be grateful for.
