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.

I’ve had a rough week of plumbing, maintenance, and landlord issues, but the evening sky a couple of nights ago decided to make it up to me.

A friend said a couple days ago that my pictures from New York all make it seem like a blend of beauty and sci-fi apocalypse, and I have to say that’s a pretty accurate distillation of the mood these days. This is another one from my evening walk around the ballfields a few nights ago. West Side skyline, one lamppost, retreating storm clouds.

IMG_0877In order to maintain some kind of routine and sense of time while we’re all isolated and out of work, and also get outside at least a little bit as safely as possible, I’m trying to go for a walk in the park both early in the morning and late in the evening every day. I failed this morning and slept late. But last night I went out and found this whimsical shrine to I don’t know who or what.

Wishing you all a restful, happy new year! I’m hoping to get back to writing a little bit more regularly in the new decade than I’ve been able to recently. In the meantime, enjoy this view from an evening walk in my hometown over Christmas!

And I don’t know a soul who’s not been battered,
I don’t have a friend who feels at ease.
I don’t know a dream that’s not been shattered
Or driven to its knees.

I’m hoping to be able to get some new writing done sooner rather than later. In the meantime, this was my dinner break stroll last weekend–to the remains of the Central Railroad’s 69th St. Transfer Bridge on the Hudson River.
