~amor~

Saturday, May 22nd, 2021

The day’s secret word: Amor. We schvitzed our way from Harlem through the park and eventually to Alice Neel at the MET. I loved the staunchly figurative, gorgeously hued portraits, esp. of her children, lovers, naked friends. Here are some Factory queens—dig those preliminary sketches and unfinished spaces. Everywhere the trees spoke to us, and […]

NYC for the first time in fifteen months. The smell of burnt candied nuts and subterranean subway air as it comes wooshing up the stairs. So. Many. Humans: laughing, shouting, embracing, badly playing full drum kits, on wheels and in the streets, in poet’s revery and tutus. We walked most of the island below 14th […]

This female Black Swallowtail (Papilio Polyxenes) lives in my garden, unhindered by her damaged wing, fluttering and feasting on the self-seeded verbena (planted last year) that pops up every so often in the beds. She keeps me company as I pull weeds, sip coffee, sweat, and sneak in some green time before the heat and to-do […]

On my studio doorstep, in afternoon sun, I found half a luna moth’s wings.  I’ve longed to see this favorite in the wild, and this is as close as I’ve come.   It was left at my feet, like my cat used to leave birds and lizards, in offering.
