The Saga of the Hudson River Rock Ascent

A woman is sitting on a Hudson River rock,
She was out for some sun and to take a wee walk, but
While innocently ascending through the weeds and the gravel,
She snagged her yellow sweater and it started to unravel.
She didn’t mind at first, since what was the worst
That could happen to beset her from loss of a sweater.
Well!
Little did she know on her upward climb,
She was creeping through a climate zone that once upon a time
Caused a temperature inversion that reversed the
Immersion that had caused the incursion
Of the balmy interspersion that released her from the weather
That required a sweater!
Well,
She shivered and she shook
And by hook, crook and nook,
She descended from the River Rock
And lived to give her first TED talk!

Beautification of Subway stops: Gates Avenue, Brooklyn

One of 4.5 bathrooms (yes, I know!  It doesn't have a soap dish yet.  But one has to get exactly the Correct Soap Dish!  This bathroom is a beautiful grey and white, although it doesn't look like it here.  It also is a fairly large bathroom--I guess I have to spring for a wide-angle lens like all those other people!

Oh yes.  Indoor plumbing!  What a gift, even without soap dishes and towel
racks!

Mission for the day (should you choose to accept it):

1.  Enter into a bathroom; one with tub or shower.  Avoid gas stations, for
example.
2.  Revel in the beauty and convenience of Tile!  Think what a mess the
average shower might make without it.
3.  Check out the very simplicityof a water repellent floor!  Nothing
fancy, just tile, tile, showers, water, toilets with double flush, maybe a
mirror!!!!  A mirror.  What an amazing thing.

No place is more beautiful at night than the view  from the Williamsburg Bridge.

Night Along the Savanah River


Of course I didn’t see you coming,
Or I would have dodged that silken bullet
hollowing through my cemented door.
I’d be huddled down inside my barrow,
Tossing the apple away with the core.

Light Masses Pulling Closer

Lights pushing, inching closer
Magnetized in the falling rain

From a Brooklyn to Manhattan Bridge, early summer
