Night lights

Just when I wished for someone to put lights up on our street

I turned up the road and saw the crescent moon pinned in the night sky

This bookstore in Oneonta is wonderful 

And my son said the coffee next door was great

Always end on a chicken lamp

Once again, comments are not posting. It seems to be a blogger  issue, not a Google issue. Thank you for remarks, they are appreciated even though I can't post them.

Halloween draws to an end

Spending a morning with about twenty plus wee toddlers not a bad start to the holiday.  Library power!
A poem for the holiday that was published a few years ago by Danse Macabre.
And some bears.

A Connecticut Day

To celebrate a dear friend's birthday. A visit to the Bruce Museum, a delicious lunch at Meli-Melo Creperie, and a walk on the beach. Lovely.

Edwidge Danticat

Was so happy to catch a reading at Manhattanville College by the brilliant writer, Edwidge Danticat. Every word she writes a measured perfection. In person, she is as warm and gracious as she is gifted.
