These are my 2022 Strava bike stats on my Eddy Merckx Professional. It seems I’m going downhill compared to my 2021 Strava stats and my 2020 Strava stats. It’s definitely connected to age and maybe fewer days of good biking weather.
A Camel, Me and Brooke
In the late 70’s and early 80’s, I worked for Mary Ellen Mark as an assistant for several years. She was one of the most passionate people that I’ve met in my life.
In 1983, she asked me if I wanted help her with a People Magazine cover shoot of Brooke Shields. She said it meant a trip to Israel. I hesitated for about a second and said yes.
You can tell by Brooke’s loving embrace that she and I became close friends, as this photograph attests. No, that’s not what happened.

Since it’s fall, the late afternoon sun now streams in through the windows onto my face. I have to wear my New York Yankees cap like 50 Cent to keep the sun out of my eyes.
I used my Macintrash’s built in camera and Photo Booth to make the piture. I don’t know what’s up with the Warhol effect.
