I am a Jewish convert to Catholicism, blogging on a variety of subjects.
The motto for this blog is:
"Rejoice always, pray constantly,
give thanks in all circumstances;
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you."
1 Thessalonians 5:16-18, Revised Standard Version, Catholic Edition.
I remember going to The Windsor Hotel in South Fallsburg for a week every summer back in the 1960s with my grandparents, Rose and Nathan Rosenthal.
I remember being fascinated by the color tv in the lobby; our sets at home were black and white.
I remember people gathering around the piano in the lobby, singing and dancing
I remember a woman who played that piano. I remember the way she sang "Yankee Doodle." For some reason, I can remember most vividly her singing the line, "I got a Yankee Doodle sweetheart."
I remember how everyone would clear the floor, and my grandparents would dance
