10-23-14 The Accidental Cootchie Mama Conundrum

Every time I see the ACM and MTM, I have a camera with me as well as my iPhone. I never take a picture…What is that?

We had a lovely dinner tonight at Covo up on 133rd and 12th Avenue. Mama is nearing the end of this leg of her book tour, MTM is ending a convention and I just wrapped up another 12 days in a row of work so while not running on empty we all could use a fill up. Nevertheless a fun evening.

But the question is why do I never pull out my camera when I see them?

Before I met them I spent some time walking the river.

9-09-14 I’ve Stolen Your Words (Western Cloud Tributary)

I’VE STOLEN YOUR WORDS

After Shelomo Ibn Gabiriol

 

I’ve stolen your words, I don’t deny it—
   I ate them and broke teeth on the liberation wall;
did I think I could soar with your songs
   or use them to hide my flaws? I did.

Can a woman scale the tree of life
   and eclipse the application of light in the world?
It’s always, I think, a simple plan of clouds:
   can the East River be drained with a teaspoon?

Melanie Neilson

Travel Theme: Close Up (Far Away)

Close Up

“All photographs are memento mori. To take a photograph is to participate in another person’s (or thing’s) mortality, vulnerability, mutability. Precisely by slicing out this moment and freezing it, all photographs testify to time’s relentless melt.” 
Susan Sontag
