Poetry in unlikely places




I know magazines are folding and newspapers will soon cease to exist, but what will ever replace the little gems of meteorological narrative non-fiction that appear in the upper right-hand corner of the New York Times each day? Here's what the Late Edition told us this morning, and so far it's all come true:

Today, mostly sunny, not as warm
nor as humid, high 76. Tonight,
mostly clear, comfortable, low 58.
Tomorrow
, mostly sunny, nice.

The world is gushing chaos, but somehow gentleness survives.

(The photo was taken on my way home from work today. Tango by the River at sunset.)

I hope you are right...that gentleness does survive. I try, but I'm beginning to think much of the world has forgotten how.
I love words, I love reading them, writing them and seeing my name beneath a title of them.
Can you tell I'm discouraged.
Sorry.
The picture is awesome.
Though I don't live they-ya, I love Nu Yawk too.
I used to live in Jersey, they tawk funny too.
