Sweet Dreams, 2011. Nice to Meet You, 2012.

January 1, 2012

Say goodnight, 2011.

Electric sunset over New Jersey.

It’s been swell.

Hudson River goodnight.

But it’s time for you to go.

Pink water tower sky.

Sweet dreams.

Moon Over Manhattan.

And oh, good morning, 2012!

(Okay, I'm cheating here on my beloved NYC. This photo is from a brief fling with beautiful Virginia.)

Thank you, dear readers, for a wonderful year.

Here’s to the future.


O Riverside Park, O Walks of 2009

December 31, 2009

O Riverside Park

O you long, slim, man-made beauty!

Accept this thank you letter for a year of walks with Esau.

Thank you, Riverside Park, for tepee builders and basket weavers  thank you for sculptors of driftwoodand balancers of stonethank you for cross-country skiers and crazy skateboard boys

Thank you for trees, tree holes and painters of trees

Thank you for fish on stonesfor dogs on hay bales for sports drinks on trees and conspiring red riding hoodsThank you for your long, narrow palm  that holds the living secrets of the Great Retaining Wall on your eastern side and, on the west, the fishy banks of the Hudson Most of all, thank you for holding safe the wild things so they can go about their eternal and mysterious animal business right under our city noses.
