Thank god for this well-stocked news and magazine stand right there where I can satisfy my information appetite at the same time I’m taking care of my nutritional needs. One of the Pakistanis who runs this shop never fails to comment in a flirty way on the red color of my hair – a very sweet thing for him to do considering that I am old enough to be his mother and then some.

Until recently, the usable interior was smaller. The walls were moved out to create a private passageway along the right side and a private space in the back of the store. A husband, wife and sister team ran it. The man and his sister ran theplace; his wife was part-time help and was driven to work in a Cadillac. The sister was grizzled before here age, but in spite of her hard exterior, rather roughly friendly. The guy also worked in the store on a part-time basis and go into toback with other guys. Occasionally boxes were brought into, taken out of the back space. Most of the candy store supplies came from the basement. I smoked at that time and the sister always made sure they had my brand and a NYT for me in the morning. But she didn`t always work the mornings.

The original sign still stands in place, well at least the one that I remembered. My father always referred to it as Harry Hockstein`s (sp?). When I was growing up comic books, Spaldings and candy. Musty, dirty and run by two nasty ladies it was a stop on the way back from my grandparent`s on West 4th steet every Sunday after our visit.

    War is the plague that human beings bring upon themselves. It is also a plague we might be able to end. On any given day since you and I were born, some part of the world has been at war–in 2003 the total number of open conflicts was thirty. In the twentieth century at least 108 million people died in wars. Of the 20 largest military budgets on earth, 14 belong to developing countries. The United States spends more on its military than the next 16 countries combined

    "Echolalia" is an interactive installation based on images, sound and expressive typography.

    What I am after is to create a bank of images related to the theme "Echo” .
