Butterflies of Love

Full day of family fun for honoring loved ones and sharing joy to be alive.

    Butterflies of Love
    Neighbors from East Falls, Manayunk, Roxborough - and all over NW Philly - came out for VNA Hospice of Philadelphia's 8th Annual Butterfly Release and Community Celebration of Life. At least 100 people of all ages enjoyed hot dogs, pretzels, water ice, face painting, kid's activities, and local vendors offering everything from free neck massages to caricatures, plus delectable samples from Simon Says Brownies and Fifth of a Farm Creations.

Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge

Imagine all the people, sharing all the world. 

    Buddhist Blessings on the Falls Bridge
    The colorful flags seen recently on the Falls Bridge aren't mere decoration, but an ancient Buddhist tradition for invoking peace, compassion and harmony. While associated today with Tibetan Buddhists, the practice of printing prayers on cloth flags has its roots in India.

Good Access = Good Business

How accessible are we here in the Falls? Daniella Slon’s very personal assessment of local establishments -- and the importance of including everyone.

    How accessible are we here in the Falls? Daniella Slon's very personal assessment of local establishments - and the importance of including everyone. Last fall, I heard about a book club meeting being held at the Wissahickon Brewing Company. I love books and enjoy meeting like-minded people, so I signed up.

Fatherless Father’s Day

Of memories and moving on: how our fathers continue to inspire us even after they've gone. 

    Fatherless Father's Day
    (Original post 6/5/18 on authorlarrybenjamin.blogspot.com) I remember the accident as if it was yesterday. I had been living in Washington, D.C. for three years. That particular morning, a Saturday, I was running late for work. It was a gray, wet morning at the edge of Winter.
