…We want the spring to come and the winter to pass. We want
whoever to call or not call, a letter, a kiss — we want more and more and then more of it.
But there are moments, walking, when I catch a glimpse of myself in the window glass,
say, the window of the corner video store, and I’m gripped by a cherishing so deep
for my own blowing hair, chapped face, and unbuttoned coat that I’m speechless:
I am living…
~ Marie Howe

the calm that comes
after all the decorations are taken down and put away
and life once again returns to normal
it was a wonderful holiday season
and like every year previous
it just flew by
now it’s time to get back to our regularly scheduled programming
the start of 2015 has brought some exciting news
a new client and a published photo (Frog Pond Skaters) on a brand new website
that was just launched today…
what I thought was probably going to be the size of a postage stamp is so much more and I couldn’t be more pleased. I have to say how extremely nice the marketing people are there, as I’m sure are all their employees.
So if you are heading to Boston, check them out…and please tell them I sent you!

You’ve been living for this for weeks
without knowing it:
the moment the house empties like a city in August
it forgets you exist.
Light withdraws slowly
is almost gone before you notice.
In the stillness, everything becomes itself:
the circle of white plates on the kitchen table
the serious chairs that attend them
even the roses on the papered walls
seem to open a little wider.
It looks simple: the glass vase holding
whatever is offered—
cut flowers, or the thought of them—
simple, though not easy
this waiting without hunger in the near dark
for what you may be about to receive.
