Debbie Reynolds was one of the windows of the world for a small boy who had such a hard time in the world. It’s been a very hard year for Andrew and I. He has been so ill. More surgeries and complications. Then shots to help with the pain from the complications. Some of our beloved pets have left this year. As for me, I’ve had two hand surgeries and elbow surgery and now I must have lower back surgery. With all that, my beloved mother passed three months ago just short of 90. With all of this there is still a good life. Andrew and I on December 27 celebrated our 36th anniversary.
A Memory of long ago I was living with my mom and dad after I had left working for the academy award winning actress and writer Ellen Burstyn. Why I bring this up today is that I remember my mother at this time in my life. My mom surprised me and we went to see Debbie Reynolds at the Sunrise Music Theater. It was right by their home in Tamarac Florida. She waited with me as I got to say hello and got her to sign the program. It’s a sweet special memory of an evening with Debbie and my mom. Some how with all this I just do not feel the same about anything except Love, giving it, getting it and sharing it. For in the end of this life all that is really here is love. Love is what we take with us. Below is a little movie I made of Debbie Reynolds in the film Tammy and The Bachelor. in 2015 for my blog. She has always been one of my favorite entertainers.
I hope you take a moment ot watch my little film through Baumwoll Archives Presents of the movie stills on the set and the film “Tammy And the Bachelor”

Watch the Wonderful Film Homecoming
On a hot summer night in Provincetown, Liza Tillerman abandons her four children, thirteen-year-old Dicey, ten-year-old James, nine-year-old Maybeth, and six-year-old Sammy, in a mall. With only a change of underwear, a map, and nine dollars, Dicey, James, Maybeth, and Sammy take off on foot to Bridgeport where their nearest known relative, Aunt Cilla, lives. Along the way, Dicey struggles to care for and protect her siblings.
After finally arriving at Aunt Cilla’s, Eunice, their cousin, tells them that Aunt Cilla had died last spring. Eunice consults Father Joseph, who decides that the children may stay but only temporarily. Eunice tells Dicey of Abigail Tillerman, their grandmother, who lives in Crisfield, Maryland, and gives them some money. Dicey decides to take her siblings to their grandmother’s house, but upon arriving they realize they do not know where she lives. While stopping at a store, a woman tells them that Abigail doesn’t have a phone and is isolated clear out of town. Dicey decides to meet her alone, so she leaves James in charge of Maybeth and Sammy.
After knocking on the door and getting no answer, Dicey goes around back to see Mrs. Tillerman sitting on the back porch. Dicey asks if she can do anything to help on the farm. Mrs. Tillerman silently marches back into the house before asking Dicey to join her.
Inside, she questions Dicey about her thoughts on death and other such morbid things. Upon realizing she needs to just get up and leave, Abigail tells Dicey that Eunice wrote to warn her the children would be coming, and that she knows who Dicey is. However, she will not let the children stay. Dicey fires back, stating she doesn’t want to stay. In the midst of the fierce conversation that ensues, Abigail begins to laugh and softens Dicey’s mood a little. Abigail and Dicey takes her boat to pick up the other children, and Dicey is scared when she doesn’t see her siblings. Eventually, Dicey and Abigail find Sammy, who says James and Maybeth wanted to meet Abigail themselves and have already left. They return to Abigail’s to find James and Maybeth just arriving.
Over the next few days, the children help their grandmother around the farm and with the cooking, and Abigail begins to warm toward them. However, Abigail tells Dicey she can’t let the children stay with her; she is too old, has no money and fears making the same mistakes she made with her own children. One day while they stay over, Abigail receives a letter from Eunice discovering that Liza is found from the police and is discovered she has gone mentally insane, with a photo for evidence. Liza is put in a mental institution and is suffering from catatonia, closely enough to being schizophrenic. The people of the mental institution deem she will not be cured. Later on during their stay, Abigail insists the children must go back to Bridgeport and arranges for them to take the morning bus. As they wait for the bus, defeated, Abigail realizes she wants the children to stay after all.

My Saturdays At the Strand Movie Palace in Far Rockaway New York 1967
I spent many afternoons in the Strand movie palace on school days and always on Saturday, often alone in the big movie house during the week. I would watch films in chairs that were made for two people to sit in, It was a great old movie Palace. So many families during the 1920 – 1960s would spend a Saturday night walking in town and than catching a movie. Often we would go to our favor places to eat before we would all see the new movie out this week. So many wonderful times.

CONNECT + INTERSECT: HOW ONE DESIGN COMPANY WORKS WITH CLEVELAND ARTISTS AND BRIDGES THE GAP BETWEEN ART AND DESIGN
written by Brittany Mariel Hudak
I’m excited and proud that my spouse, Andrew Reach was featured in an article written by Mariel Hudak, in the CAN Journal (Collective Arts Network) about the company she works in, 4walls, that specializes in large scale digital wall murals featuring artwork from Cleveland based artists,them among Kate Snow and Mark Thomas. an others from all over. Brittany Mariel Hudak first saw Andrew’s work at at the Maria Neil Art Project, a gallery in the Waterloo Arts district in the Collinwood neighborhood in Cleveland. where he had a solo show and approached him to license a couple of his artworks for their Level4 Digital Wall Coverings.
excerpt from article:
“While the marriage of art and design certainly comes with challenges, it doesn’t have to be a rocky relationship. The Cleveland-based wallcovering company, 4walls, regularly sources local art to use in designs for commercial contract wallcoverings. The company’s belief is that making use of local resources can be mutually beneficial. Serving as a liaison between the artists and designers, I see both sides–and that great things can happen when these two fields intersect.”
