Why I Quit My Day Job ~ First November Bike Ride

I love to do chores on my bike. Today, I pedaled to Astor Place to meet two of my guests on tomorrow's Yorkville: Stoops to Nuts radio show ~ Stefanie Demas & Stacey Kahn. Stef, Stacey & Marie Sicari will join me Tuesday night at Giovanna's Restaurant on Lexington Avenue & 100th Street live @ 9m on the Centanni Broadcasting Network. We're talking writing, storytelling, improvisation. Here's the link for live show & the archive:

Here are our guests bios:

Marie Sicari, MD ~ native lover of New York City, it's food, art, history and eccentricity. As a first generation American of European heritage, I have the spirit of a wanderer with a penchant for world travel and adventure. I've delved back into my childhood love of the arts. I consider myself a re-born creative, liberating my true voice through spontaneous painting and writing, song, improvisational theater and laughter. I am a dermatopathologist, New York City trained.

Stefanie Demas graduated Magna cum Laude from Skidmore College in 2009, with a major in English and a membership in Phi Beta Kappa. While at Skidmore, she was editor in chief of Folio, Journal of Arts and Letters, for two years.

Stacey Kahn is a graduate of Skidmore College and currently an MFA student in nonfiction at Sarah Lawrence. She's been published in Epiphany magazine, among other publications. She is the assistant editor at Epiphany and is a contributor to the music site Play Me. She is currently obsessed with Rice Kripsy treats and the band Pavement. Stacey Kahn is not a descendant of Genghis Khan.

This song was playing when I passed a tree on the river exploding with color and releasing it's leaves like a slot machine paying off.
