full moon in capricorn


the moon in its fullness
at the height
of my fears and doubts

already they begin to wane

from full to gibbous
to half to quarter to new
to the beginning of dreams

a blank sky to write upon
afraid and doubtful no more

Greenbrook Sanctuary


Back in June I went to an awesome writing workshop. It was held at a wonderful woodland preserve in the Palisades cliffs overlooking the Hudson River. It was fun and a great way to commune with nature. My next two posts highlight some of the work I did there (finally getting around to doing that!).

Beautification (street art)


Street art is adorning the walls of more and more buildings in Newark, NJ, lately. I think some of them are being commissioned by Newark mayor Ras Baraka? In any event, these works are increasing the unique character of the city. Just beautiful.

Fluttering a Universe of Air


I was very much fascinated by the sky in 2014 and I took countless pictures of it whenever the spirit hit me. I felt i was rediscovering something I had taken for granted for too long.

So as this year ends, I offer just a few of the photos I took. (Yes, some were taken while I was driving. Distracted driving is dangerous so don’t try this at home!)

May our skies be as beautiful as these in 2015. Happy New Year!
