This was the face I got this morning when we all realized it was a snow day here in the North East, so I went with it…

*Snow poem*

Wet snow

painting on cheeks

like candy coating


and around in a steel barrel

we tumble

to bring out

the shine


church bells before the hour

anticipate a longing

killers shadowplay in the background

house lights hazy behind me

–like no glasses on–

from this twilight storm


Two shorter days remain

until the cold releases



and slighter still

and the light will

grow again

as winter persists

a white orange

unpeeling and

unrolling under my skin.



*Winter year*

I woke up a dozen years older

And when I opened my refrigerator,

Each annual was an egg—





But not in my dress

Not in my looks

Not in my heart


I play the teacher

And cry the teenager

I play the wife

And bleed the daughter

I play the adult

And hear the child


To you it was a cigarette ash

To me it was the forest fire.

It’s nice to take a piece of life and save it for later. I guess that’s why we photograph.

Back in October I picked up this awesome door on the side of the road, not sure what the future held for it. I decided to make it a showcase for some of my favorite photographs I’ve shot. I’m big on painting this aqua–it can generally be the answer to everything. It is hanging from the ceiling in my office now…
