Kau — 1 Juli 2018


Aku cinta kau

Setelah sekian lama aku mengenal

Ku temukan kau,

Mohon jangan sakiti aku

Karna suatu saat aku akan menikahi kau


Insensible waters — 30 April 2015

Insensible waters

Little Stories

“We live half our waking lives and all of our sleeping lives in some private, useless, and insensible waters we never mention or recall. Useless, I say. Valueless, I might add—until someone hauls their wealth up to the surface and into the wide-awake city, in a form that people can use.”

— Teaching a Stone to Talk, Annie Dillard

Friday Book Chats: Books Worth Re-Reading —

Friday Book Chats: Books Worth Re-Reading

Such Small Hands

When I was a child I used to reread my favorite books over and over again. In fact, when I asked for specific books for Christmas or my birthday I only chose books I had already read and knew I loved enough to want to own. Of course, as a child I had tons of free time to read and my books weren’t usually very long. As an adult, I rarely reread books, mainly because there are SO many books I want to read that I don’t feel like I have the time to spend on a reread. But every once in a while there’s a book I love enough to reread. These are all books I’ve read more than once, and at least one of those times as an adult.

There is also a list of current kindle deals I am aware of at the end of this post.

Eternal Ephemera

Love in the Spaces



It’s there and it’s gone.  Another few seconds of sunlight and the shape will shift.  A blink of cloud cover and the sparkle will disappear.

A vermillion and lemon ocean froth for just an instant, a stream of reflected sunrise.  Swaths of roiling sea smoke part to reveal an abandoned island before sealing it off again.  Spring sunlight gives the illusion of dancing streamers in pastel hues.  Clouds gather into a perfect arch that just as quickly collapses into a fiery phoenix.

You might glance just so, shifting your peripheral vision so you notice the fleeting presence of a brilliantly camouflaged moth and a jewel-colored fly on a plant’s undulating green and rust hills.  You look again and they’re gone.


Or it’s there and then it’s not . . . but it’s never gone.

“I drove her out to college, drove back to an empty space, thinking…

Blurred Lines

Love in the Spaces


Winter has been a blur of white and glittering gray, and the line between seasons has imperceptibly been crossed.

Driving overnight rain plumped dessicated berries, turning garnet into cherry red.  The sun erupted this morning, transforming the last raindrops into blurred streaks and dots of cottony white.

A single burst of butterscotch and lavender crocuses in my neighborhood has people lumbering like zombies to stand and dot the salt-cracked street pavement.  They stare silently, not quite believing their bleary eyes.

A flash of brilliant color has supplanted the monochromatic blurs which drew our gazes in winter: ashy sea smoke at dawn, stalwart birds’ wings gliding among bare black branches, the seamlessly spinning vortex of snow.

You Monsters Are People of New York PART TWO (Still Not Copying HONY, Totally Original) —

You Monsters Are People of New York PART TWO (Still Not Copying HONY, Totally Original)

You Monsters Are People.

If the internet has taught me anything, it’s that the repetition of a lazy idea is key to its success. Last week’s posting, where I was inspired by (but in no way directly imitating or satirizing) Humans of New York, received a fair amount of attention so I’ve decided to bring it back. It returns not because it’s an easy way to get traffic and reuse old material but because people demand my unique photographic sensibilities and the beautiful humanity they display. However, with the next post we will be returning to business as usual here at the nonexistent offices in my mind.

Sometimes it can backfire though. A few years ago I liked a bunch of articles about ethnic cleansing before I found out…
