kaleidoscope

Chester County Ramblings - 8 hours 41 min ago

Memories are sometimes but little fragments, like looking through a kaleidoscope.

Sometimes a song triggers a memory. You hear a song and you stop and remember where you heard it first. Yesterday I heard Vacation by the Go-Go’s. That song always reminds me of the Jersey shore, my friend Karen and her friend Ellie. I heard that song and in my mind’s eye saw us as our late teenage selves when we didn’t worry about tanning and were spending summer in flip flops with sand on our feet. I swear I could almost smell the Bain de Soleil Orange Gelèe.

Other memories and like shards of glass. Fragments that pop into your head in that stage between sleeping and waking, which fall away when you wake up. I had that happen the other day when I first started thinking about writing this post. But I didn’t write it down, and the memory was fleeting.

This morning is September 1st. I woke up with memory of the many years my friend Pam would leave all of her friends “rabbit, rabbit” messages the day the old month ended to remind us to say rabbit, rabbit the first day of every new month. Saying rabbit, rabbit as your first words of the new month is supposed to bring you luck all month long. I still say it.

Today is also Labor Day. As a kid, in spite of the true origination of the holiday , you knew it was the last “official” day of summer vacation. An in between day when you are packing up and coming home from summer vacation. Maybe at a neighborhood barbecue. You wake up and even the air is different. Change is coming, a fresh start in a new school year. And the dreaded thought of homework.

Labor Day marks our transition of summer towards fall. It will feel like summer a few weeks yet, but soon it will be time for hay rides and corn mazes.

Enjoy the day.

Labor Day in Atlantic City

Heron's Nest - 12 hours 49 min ago
“Everything dies baby that’s a fact

But maybe everything that dies someday comes back.”

‘Atlantic City,’ Bruce Springsteen. *

Nobody expected it to die again, however. The panacea of legalized gambling that was supposed to resurrect a down-on-its luck shore town more than 30 years ago has gone bust.

Other states, including Pennsylvania, introduced casinos, siphoning off the lifeblood of the new Atlantic City - gamblers.

They have had better Labor Days in Atlantic City.

Showboat Hotel and Casino closed its doors over the weekend.

Today, Revel Casino, a $2 billion albatross, shuts down after being in operation for a little more than two years.

The closures, with another one looming at Trump Plaza, will put more than 6,000 people out of work. It is being described as no less than an economic disaster.

Gambling was supposed to save Atlantic City.

Instead, once neighboring states started to lure away its customers, it’s turned into a losing bet. It cost more than $2 billion to build Revel. It was supposed to be the logical extension of the upscale, glitzy Atlantic City symbolized by the success of Borgata, only on the boardwalk.

It didn’t turn out that way.

*

“Put your makeup on, fix your hair up pretty,

and meet me tonight in Atlantic City.”

Didn’t work out that way, Boss. They tried to fix Atlantic City. It worked - for awhile.

Maybe it will come back again.

Or maybe they’ll just meet at the unemployment office.

Marking a milestone

Heron's Nest - 13 hours 14 min ago
I've always had a love-hate relationship with my birthday.

When I was a kid, it was always a harbinger to summer's end.

Now that I'm and adult (allegedly) I'm faced with another dilemma. This is likely the last birthday I will 'celebrate.'

Oh, I guess they will still roll around each year. But this is the last time I really want to blow out any candles. Today I turn 59. I have no interest in being 60. I explain in my print column today.
