the mental monuments under construction

In breaking a seemingly perpetual hiatus from using this platform, it’s curious that there is little that comes to mind when confronted by a blank page and a blinking black line that waits while much circulates in thought. Let’s just say there is a temporary struggle to place one’s thoughts in line to be able to knock them over one by one, word by word, and that an also temporary silent/lonesome greeter is staying long overdue the welcome but that’s not such a shame, and if anyone else is confused by my mire, so am I. There is a new president to be (I voted for the first time in my life, it was anti-climactic but of the monumental sort) and a place to peer out towards after I (eek) graduate… most are surprised to learn I want to leave New York in search of a job– true. This is a place for the media, writers, photographers, aspiring everything-ers, and it’s rich in inspiration and bubbling with ideas, just not the place that makes me that satisfied-unsatisfied. 

Otherwise, there is much too much to find in people to skim over surfaces and my half-arsed attempts at engaging is wont to become a fully fledged bind to a line, word, person, personality, narrative, story. Trust that I am excited and some photos of late are arrived, from Veterans Day in NY, whereupon I get cheek-kissed by a soldier and picked up by a biker, then a sailor… all along 5th Avenue, all while being regaled with tales from the Nam and recollections of Saipan in ’45– images made in the form of spoken word.
