Hospice Studio

Poem for Willoughby

Look at me now and here I am
And with it all it is not preparation
They make it never breathless without breath
And sometimes in a little while they wait.
Without its leaving.
It is mine to sit and carefully to be thought thorough
Let it be that it is said let me alone,
You alone have a way to think and swim,
Leave it as well
And noises have no other.
It is in their refrain that they sing me
It just can happen so

Gertrude Stein

January 3, 2008-- Advance copies of my book arrive in a cardboard box. Very thoughtfully, Ed or Roger the mailman leaves the box in the hall way so I don't have to trek to the post office to pick it up on my return from shooting. In totally unrelated but aggravating news, AAH Destruction starts dismantling the Washington Square-soon-to-be-Tisch fountain with hammers and crowbars while a backhoe rips up the pathway surrounding the sitting wall. The gap between the last entry here and today is filled with several scenes shot at the Arch or through the cyclone fencing surrounding the NW quadrant of the park which you can see at until I get around to integrating.
