Here is a video guide to the show going […]

Comments Off on Times Three

Quite beautiful and thrilling. A dance of lightning strikes three buildings at once on the Chicago skyline and then fractures and crackles the sky in amazing ways. A reminder that though humans think we rule the Earth, Gaia is still in charge. We are just lodgers in her house. Lightning strikes three of the tallest […]

I generally distrust video links e-mailed to me from friends and acquaintances that includes a Web address and message like: “From me to you; have a wonderful day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” The multiple exclamation points are the usual give-away that some well-meaning soul, moved to the ends of their toes by a slideshow of rainbow photos and quotes […]

UNDRUNK Is how I prefer you. I’m just saying. Nothing more than that, my dear. This is no judgment. Nor, god knows, an argument. We, too, after all, were intoxicated with our usual emendation.

Embers

Comments Off on Embers

………………………….. EMBER POEM In the light given all the light this night, iridescence of a bronze shield hair drawn off cheek pulled back to reveal Artemis. Or is it Selene? Crescent moon tumbling like a stone in a roil of black-purple clouds over head. Don’t doubt, although I know you must. A hundred times, the gods […]

Michael Lipton and a host of helpers and backers have done a remarkable job with the West Virginia Music Hall of Fame. Contrary to what you might expect, the state’s now seven-year-old HOF does not exclusively showcase old-time, country and bluegrass musicians, though the Hall’s work obviously spotlights some of the best players in those […]
