Dear Friends,

The ancients knew how to balance things.

I marvel at the strength, endurance, and stability of the structures they built. They radiate an amazing equanimity.

Today, on the Autumnal Equinox, regardless of our place on the globe, we all experience (approximately) equal hours of light and dark.

May this turning of the season bring you renewed balance and equanimity.


Autumn Equinox - September 23, 2019

Poulnabrone shoulders
summer's final, weighty light
graciously. Not me.









Once handed out on street corners, it seemed right to update the broadside* form for our electronic age's street corner - the web. Welcome to A VISION AND A VERSE, an e-Broadside. Four to six times a year, I'll showcase a featured image and poem of mine, matching them on a seasonal or timely theme.

A seasonal celebration and a sharing of my creative process, I hope you'll want to subscribe to future issues. Click here for a free subscription

*A broadside is a large sheet of paper printed on one side only. Historically, broadsides were posters, announcing events or proclamations, or simply advertisements. Today, broadside printing is done by many smaller printers and publishers as a fine art variant, with poems often being available as broadsides, intended to be framed and hung on the wall.
