Graffiti 1989

Back in the 1980s and 90s local graffiti artists were asked to do murals in the playground. These murals were respected and not marked up with others’ graffiti or tags. This artist, Victor (I forget his last name) did a beautiful one called Summer Scene, which unfortunately I didn’t photograph. It was blue – cool blue. The playground is Mathews-Palmer, mid-block between 9th and 10th Avenues, on West 45th and 46th Streets, in Manhattan, New York City. I lived in that neighborhood for more than 20 years. More photos

Changes Are Coming

I’ll be changing my blog in the New Year. There will be shorter pieces: poems and musings, and new things: more photos and videos, and links to articles with short comments on why I find them interesting, and some reblogs. Like the sun coming out after a good soaking rain, I hope there will be new flowers, fruit and seeds.
