When I find a great example of American automotive it’s in my life’s philosophy to take pictures.
I found this 1953 FORD pick-up along Route 22 just north of Brewster.
In sweet shape and all the good stuff still intact.
I noticed myself in the mirror.
See me there?
I was in almost every shot.
I never found an easy way to get out of the picture.
I tried. But it was sunny and the truck was shiny.
So even the closeups turned out to be all about me.

this is from Neal Diamond 1967.
“Girl, you'll be a woman soon
Please come take my hand
Girl, you'll be a woman soon
Soon you'll need a man.”

I’m sitting here listening to Davina and reading about DJ Anita Sarko in the 1980’s.
For most New Yorkers, the 80’s were a well paid party, a runaway train of intoxicant’s and not-so-quiet indescretions.
Anita Sarko was the very best host.
She went to school for child psychology and once said in an interview:
Over time HIV took its awful toll, the clubs closed down
and Anita tried hard to adapt.
For awhile she curated cd’s for shopping music and “keep it cool” is still one of the best captures of the era.
She was so good.
