Crumple the calendar, toss it into recycle, it no longer suffices.
Earth Day, Poetry Month, Gallery Night.
Emails, iPhones. iPads, iPods.
Forest fires, oil spills, mine collapses.
Quakes, tsunamis, tornados.
A moment of silence for the dead, a century of noise for the living.
Everyone on the move.
For me it’s the OPENING RECEPTION for PHOTOSCAPES, (PHOTO-ESCAPES?) featuring Mark Baran, Steven Crossot, Art Elkon, Keith Knox, & me, at ROSENBLATT GALLERY, 181 N. Broadway, Friday, APRIL 15, 6:30-10 PM. I travelled the world with a brownie for years, have since upgraded, and last October found myself snapping up the unexpected beauty of autumn in Harriman State Park (NY).
That’s why I’m in a photography show for the first time. What’s the next event?
For me it’s the 24th ANNUAL EARTH POETS & MUSICIANS PERFORMANCES on April 16 and 22. 24th annual, two performances every April, and I’ve never missed one.
