famous people famous places

My new book, Famous People Famous Places, arrived in yesterday’s mail.

I am very pleased with the printing and very moved by the photographs.

Photographs of New York City/Times Square and Hoboken, New Jersey, 1980s.

I had two copies printed at BLURB. Self-published. Now I need to find a publisher.

Here are a few spreads:

Happy New Year

Gene Palma

Wishing you a Happy New Year.
Can I get a drum roll please?
And how about a prayer dears
For Susan and me; we cough and sneeze
All day long this first day of the year.
She sleeps. I sleep. We take turns.
I had to put the brisket in the crock pot.
Will not eat tonight as we have no appetite
But I yearn for a slice on the bread I made
And a side of cole slaw and mashed potatoes.
