While walking around to meet friend’s friends in London near Stoke Newington area. I wanted these two male earthlings to continue walking towards me and said so but they got scared and ran away!  

“As if you were on fire from within.  The moon lives in the lining of your skin.”  — Pablo Neruda I have always had a thing for June full moon, I tell you. It’s not as wicked as the rest […]

I forgot to post this one from my Princeton trip.    

Dogfish Some kind of relaxed and beautiful thing kept flickering in with the tide and looking around. Black as a fisherman’s boot, with a white belly. If you asked for a picture I would have to draw a smile under […]

It was a pleasure to spend some time with Lucy  ( @fictional100 ) again in Princeton. This time we actually had a chance to walk around the campus since the weather was so beautiful. We discussed my current WIP MS, […]

Just walking around Princeton…snap click snap and was stopped in my tracks at this surreal collection of light and shades…spellbound…  

This is beautiful.  It is not only beautiful but it is aloe vera for my bewilder-burnt writer’s skin. Yet another sign—at this point I am finally admitting to the Universe: I am stuffed! I get it!—for  my WIP MS (work-in-progress […]

June 1st: a cavernous new moon … The Freedom of the Moon I’ve tried the new moon tilted in the air Above a hazy tree-and-farmhouse cluster As you might try a jewel in your hair. I’ve tried it fine with […]

I love the trees in Bryant Park and in the summer time they even have a reading room!   NYC subways are notorious for musicians playing their tunes… The first guy had a nice set of drums I must say. […]

Last night I had to clean the flood of papers in more than one room of my apartment. Usually the paper clutter of notebooks, loose pages and ancient term papers is contained in one area in one room when I […]

Yesterday Meral asked me how was the weather in NYC and I said it has been surreal and lovely, all nice and spring-like and then it started acting like a moron and has been acting so all week. She bragged […]

I often go on a long walk if I miss yoga after I write “Still Sundays”. It’s my way of preparing for a non-still week. Sometimes this doesn’t happen but when it does it is lovely. Now I have a […]

Took this photo while walking home the other night. This boutique flowershop always draws me in…as if there is an unfinished story in the plants and flowers…and if I stayed just long enough I might hear it to the end […]

Since time is one of the themes explored in my “WIP MS” (work in progress manuscript) some research lead me to Ludwig Wittgenstein‘s (1889 – 1951) essays. He was an Austrian philosopher who held the professorship in philosophy at the University of […]

 The Carnival of Venice (Carnevale di Venezia) is an annual festival, held in Venice, Italy. The Carnival starts around two weeks before Ash Wednesday and ends on Shrove Tuesday (Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras), the day before Ash Wednesday.  Carnival […]

…checked out this entire poem today after I saw a woman with a tattoo before going to Marco Rojas yoga class which said “I will wade out…”   Although I am familar with quite a bit of E.E. Cummings’ poetry […]

“Uncontrolled, the hunger and thirst after God may become an obstacle, cutting off the soul from what it desires. If a man would travel far along the mystic road, he must learn to desire God intensely but in stillness, passively […]

“when once you have tasted flight…” ~ Leonardo Da Vinci

“The really important kind of freedom,” said David Foster Wallace, “involves attention and awareness and discipline, and being able truly to care about other people and to sacrifice for them over and over in myriad petty, unsexy ways every day.” […]

The name Etna comes from the Greek Aitne, but it was known as Mongibello in the past, which is a combination of the Latin, Monte for mountain and the Arabic Gibel, which also means mountain, or rather mountain of mountains. […]

Came across a really cool artist and just drooled over her work. I didn’t take many photos. She gave my mother and I a gift just for stopping by: a very unique ceramic key chain. More information about the work […]
