On the October Full Moon – FullMoonSocial2014


OnOctoberMoonTo celebrate the full moon, Jeff Schwaner, of the fantastic Translations from the English blog, invited poets to post a poem between the rising and setting of the moon tonight (October 8th) and participate in a Full Moon Social. I loved the idea and raced home today after work to participate – here is my contribution – illustrated, of course! Photograph, poem, and composition by me.

Double Original Friday – Evidence


Haiku and collage by me. The “bodies” of the radishes are from the Hubble Space Telescope’s Wide Field and Planetary Camera 2 and are titled “Northern Summer on Mars” – which is fairly poetic all by itself. The rest of the collage is made up of images from other NASA press releases. Happy Friday!

Double Original Friday – To Paul Bäumer, With Love

ToPaulBaumerwithLove copy


Happy Friday! I recently finished reading All Quiet on the Western Front by Erich Maria Remarque (it was on the list of “Classics I never read in high school or college”) and learned why it is considered such a classic. Photos (of the monolithic but unnamed building across the street from the Boston Convention and Exhibit Center), poem, and composition by me.
