A WEEK IN PICTURES AND WORDS





Note that the videos turned into Gifs
Sorry-Ill try to fix it
SUNDAY
7.28.13
Listening to "Ulysses" by James Joyce

MONDAY
7.29.13
At 'The Moving Pen', my weekly writing group,
we used "If I Could Tell You" by Auden as a prompt
then wrote for ten minutes.

IF
by Ms

If I could understand the why, the wherefore,
they wouldn't be much more, or less, than before.

My words, reasons, the distant shore--
all metaphor for landscapes at an angle,
an angle on the puzzles tangle..

I see you have your own.
We write together separately, each entirely at home.

So, here we are behind that door,
precisely as we were before the why, the wherefore.

TUESDAY
7.30.13
Very pleasant young entrepreneurs were giving away $29 credit
while advertising
www.handybook.com 'handybook'
where one might find cleaners, handy persons and plumbers
background checked, and using Eco-friendly products
Supper with two kind friends
.
We chanted our gratitude 


WEDNESDAY
7.31.13
Time for processing raw vegetables, tending the church garden,
and having a nap.  Early evening, I walked over to Stuyvesant-Town Oval
The free film showing was a family affair where kids being kids made my day.
"Moonrise Kingdom"
is a wonderfully twisty-turning tale, charmingly told.
Soon the sun  was sinking

THURSDAY
8.1.13
A bill paying, record keeping, cleaning up day
with an hour of yoga in the early evening,
and a gift in the mail-a bonus delight
THANKS
Nancy Erisman

FRIDAY
8.2.13
Still waiting for the return of cooking gas
(gone since July 22)
Worked on drafts, then took a walk to see
the old mimosa
with her few last 'faerie' flower blooms.
SATURDAY
8.4.13
Dedicated folks at Union Square
Occupying
Gaming
 Chanting for peace
 The farm market was
gorgeous.
I chatted with my elder Irish friend, and the goat lady,
where I got some goat cheese with garlic and rosemary,
then talked with the bee guy about bee health.
His are!
Scored a big juicy tomato, a little hot pepper,
basil and garlic, plus two whole wheat, veggie-stuffed-burritos
1/2 price days end sale from the organic baker.
($12 total)
Strolling home passing outdoor restaurants.
 
SUNDAY
8.4.13
Thai basil, Lemon balm and Sage
to be planted in the church garden.
 That very dark pigeon is Peg-Leg, now at least 3 years old, she is a survivalist.
Then out for a neighborhood walked about, I encountered a group of great folks
having an old fashioned street party!  They invited me in, and I ended up
turning the jumprope for a few people, and jumped a round too.
 Last view of a really, really beautiful day.
MONDAY
August 5. 2013
 I'm looking forward to the first of three session with the Isadora Duncan troupe
One of my writing friends alerted me to the offering from our center.
A BRIEF GLIMPSE
