Moon child, am I.  Follower of the midnight lantern, with wide-eyed insomnia, I stare at the silver in the trees.  Restless tossing gives way to quiet creativity – a lunar frenzy.

Chris Pureka at The Brown Hotel...
Last night we drove up to Indiana, PA and stopped by The Brown Hotel to check out a performance by singer/songwriter, Chris Pureka .  The venue reminded me a lot of some of the bars back in Brooklyn.  With a cool, neighborhood vibe, the bar had cheap drinks...

Spring-loaded life, bound in the bud. Branches of leaves, tightly coiled in a promise of what's to come. Red to green and green to gold. A quiet sleep, then repeat.

Above the Clouds and Under Every Petal...
When I was little, I used to love the saying that "every cloud has a silver-lining" .  I would imagine clouds with sparkling interiors, that gleamed like polished chrome.  In my mind, the sky was filled with floating Airstream Travel Trailers hiding in plan...

Quick moving storm clouds barrel across the skyline.  They move like a stampede of white-hoofed, wild stallions – a threat in the wind, heavy heavens, soon gone.  Dark chased by light.
