Drop

[Image description: A single drop of water hangs from a twig of a bare, reddish brown tree branch, against a gray-blue sky.]

From a walk in the park a couple of days ago, a fitting image I thought for the start of a new year when many things still feel impending.

[Image is of a pastel-colored evening sky, from rosy orange near the horizon to deep blue higher up, over the surface of a lake and horizon line of dark trees. Fluffy gray clouds are backlit by the sun so they look tinted orange in places.]

Spent some time back home in the Midwest recently, seeing family again and catching up on views like this.

I want to believe

[Image is of the brick wall of a pedestrian underpass tunnel, lit by warm sunlight, with a pair of shadows roughly forming an ‘X’ shape.]

On a warm day in the park when the snow had started melting, I caught this serendipitous arrangement of shadows on an afternoon walk in the Ravine.

There are so many things I want to believe these days.

Sorry, friend, no snacks today!

Waterways

I went out on a final hike of the year yesterday, since it was supposed to be cold but clear. The inlet of Spuyten Duyvil Creek was mostly a frozen mud flat, but whether due to natural currents or use by water birds, some little rivulets remained free-flowing.

Riverside, November

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , at 6:26 pm by chavisory

I was finally lured onto Instagram, despite not really wanting another social media platform, by a combination of the fact that it’s becoming ever more important in theaters’ publicity and marketing strategies (or at least it was before the shutdown, and I presume it will continue to be afterward) and some artists I really wanted to follow.

This is one of the first photos I was playing with filtering, from a recent evening walk in Riverside Park.

A squirrel and I nearly gave each other a mutual heart attack shortly before I snapped this picture, as I was leaning over this wall to take a breather just as he was coming up over the edge from the woods below.

Mushrooms and minor updates

Posted in Uncategorized tagged , , at 11:37 am by chavisory

IMG_1200I went hiking a little bit upstate last week and saw some beautiful bracket mushrooms. I climbed Sugarloaf Hill in the Hudson Highlands, and it was fascinating to see how much the ecosystem changed along the way even in a relatively small elevation gain. Further up this same trail was cactus.

Also I once again have a couple pieces in the newest issue of Fuckit: A Zine, the “Vote Motherfucker Vote” issue–one poem, one essay about hope in fundamentally unpredictable times, weird dreams, and Game of Thrones.
