Refraction

When winter first begins to bite
and stones crack in the frosty night,
when pools are black and trees are bare,
’tis evil in the Wild to fare.

10-20-14 ICP Borough Walk – Breakfast In Red Hook

Kristin Holcomb led her “Breakfast in Red Hook” Borough Walk through ICP this past Saturday. We were out for over five hours. If you walk with me you can see a few highlights from the first part of the day…

10-18-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Re-Refraction

The Challenge is here.

Yesterday’s attempt.

I once again borrow Melanie Neilson‘s words to express a feeling:

Verse 8 of

“Bird Coming Through A Super Doorway: The Doris Touch”

Now see what good turns mirrors for reflection have done:
Delights to peep, gaze therein on screwball heroines, screwball heroes
In cave, temple, destroyed boudoir, where-through the sun, endlessly
True and false, light and sound are found. Loving form,
Doris fulfills her intention to make poetry vital in her time
Fierce faith therein, multiple readings do show her art evergreen.

I was thinkin’ out loud
Talking to myself
I was up on a cloud
There was nobody else

10-14-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Dreamy – ICP Borough Walk Edition

Friday night the title of the ICP Borough Walk, led by Angel Franco, was Manhattan Under The Stars. Sadly there were not many stars but midtown, especially Times Square, was jumping. One way or another, no matter the year, there is always something dreamy (or dream-like) going on in Times Square and the surrounding area.

Take a little stroll with me?
