Eve’s ashes at rest in Rockaway

April 1, 2018 by

From son Peter –

At Beach 99 street, there is a path to the beach. At the end of the path, turn left.

 There is a ‘wire and sticks’ fence at the top edge of the beach.  About 20 feet down the fence, one stick is broken off. Eve’s ashes are buried there.

 Three pictures (below) that guide to the spot:

  • Beach-99-street.  Shows the location on the boardwalk
  • Broken-stick.  Shows the broken stick in the fence.
  • The-site.  The sand at the exact spot.

 The ashes were carefully spooned into a hole dug in the sand, using a big serving spoon from the kitchen at 2931.  A small amount was placed in a shell and dropped in the water.  Another small amount was raised up and caught by the wind, likeDonny.

 All done with respect.  Peter.

 

To Eve’s friends

February 14, 2018 by

This will likely be the last post on this blog.

The author, unlike the other posts here, is not Eve Winer, it’s her son, Dave Winer.

I’ve spoken with a few of mom’s friends on the phone, one, Florence Sisenwein, at first said “Eve!” probably seeing the caller id and confusing Dave for Eve. Then she asked, with some fear, why are you calling me? I’d guess by that point she probably knew.

It was one of many real moments in the last week and a half.

She’s gone

Eve Winer died. It happened on Monday February 5. She didn’t linger in decline. This was important. Her heart, a weakness shared by pretty much everyone in her parents’ family, failed.

We miss her.

Her peeves will remain here as long as WordPress keeps this site running. We hope that’s a long time. Her memory, and the sadness, that will linger as long as we’re alive.

As new documents and photos are uploaded I’ll link to them here.

My email address is dave.winer@gmail.com, if you’re a friend of hers and would like to talk please get in touch.

Photos from Eve’s memorial service

February 14, 2018 by

We had a memorial service for mom, Eve K. Winer, in Flushing on Saturday February 10.

We put together a slideshow of pictures that were displayed on a large screen. These are those photos, in no special order (WordPress did a really nice job!).

The pictures were assembled from a huge number of photos Eve and Leon left behind by daughter-in-law Alice, and son David.

 

Doing Research Thinking outside the box.

If one could live anywhere in the US That is safe from natural disaster, Or industrial disaster has a liberal citizenry. decent climate, is safe, dog friendly, where there are jobs for almost everyone, no guns, adequate health care, good hospitals and whatever else is needed to live the good and healthy life.
I’m doing a survey to find the best place to live in the continental US.
What comes to my mind is Portland Oregon and Seattle Washington.

God!

September 8, 2017 by

I still don’t believe in God. During the stress people were feeling from the hurricane. A woman was filmed screaming "There is a god,Thank you god!". She apparently had survived unexpectedly. I still do not believe in god. We are all responsible for our own destiny. But is there a higher power. We the people are doing something causing the natural disasters, hurricanes Irma and major earthquakes Mexico.
We need to stop disturbing and distroying this earth, Our only home. in the galaxy as of now.

Contempating Peace of Mind

September 3, 2017 by

My father used to say "What’s it all about trying to figure out the end of life issues. He apparently was aware of his deterioration. He died in his 90’s with dementia. Which was inherited, his many siblings also had it. He was the youngest of 10 children. And he never figured it all out. My mother was content with having a bad heart in her 60’s . And seemed to know that her time had come. She had rhumatic fever as a young woman. Was not alive to witness her one son Ken die. We his progeny did but miss him to this day. I think he most likely had an idea what to do at the end of his life. Which he brought on by himself. He was a serious smoker of tobacco as well as marajuana. I don’t think he was happy in his later years.
I myself do not seem to have any peace of mind and do not feel safe completing my life. Nor do I feel happy. Being seriously depressed I am seeking out stronger anti depressants. from a local psychiatrist. Will that give me peace of mind.
On NPR this morning I heard aTED talk about the Art of Stillness. And I am a great admirer of Pablo Neruda who wrote Keeping quiet. A poem introduced to me by John Kabat-Zinn.(MBSR)
It starts with "Now we will count to 12 and we will all keep still. and ends with "Now I will count up to 12 and you keep quiet and I will go.

Missing pieces

September 2, 2017 by

I left out some significant pieces of Leon’s impact upon our nuclear family in the first draft which was lost by being hacked.
Leon taught us all how to manage careers and money. I was left with a good nest egg for my retirement. He taught me how to manage investments and money. He guided our sons career wise. He worked in the early development of computers at IBM and thus encouraged our sons to become software developers. They are earning good salaries in this field and seem to enjoy their work.
What was missing was compassion, kindness and mindfulness and love.
As I think of him as a father, husband etc. I’ll will most likely add to these impressions.

Steve Bannon

Does anybody remember Bannon saying to the American people "And don’t think you are getting your country back. I’m going to check on Google now for the quote.
I also remember George Bush saying "This is a Christian country.
we are governed by a bunch of racists etc.

He has something on Trump and is threatening to go to the Mueller grand jury or the press and out him and his finances. So Bannon is fire proof. That is why he cannot be dismissed and fired.

Namaste!

Great New Yorkers

April 15, 2017 by

One of us left our wallet in a garage yesterday and there was great anguish. We contact them when we got home. And they had already dispatched it to near our home by one of the employees who lives in our neighborhood. Gave us the contact and we retrieved the wallet. Good work and caring. We love you Rudy. Everything was intact. And peace was again achieved.
That’s New York for you!
