Someone's one and only|
Keep it going|
In an assault against the rights of photographers and filmmakers native to and visiting New York, the Office of the Mayor has proposed legislation that would require a Film Permit for any party of two or more using film equipment for more than 30 minutes (including set up and break down time) or a camera on a tripod for more than 10 minutes (including set up and break down time). This severely hinders the efforts of independent filmmakers and photographers, and is a violation of First Amendment rights.

With every goodbye you learn
I didn't say goodbye. I would like to think that I didn't have the chance to do so, but the ugly truth is that I spent my chances carelessly, as if they would continue to greet me in an unending line of opportunities. A very dear friend of mine died last week, and since I failed to put into words what he meant to me when I had the time and chance to do so, I'll do it now, knowing full well that it is too late for these words to reach the person for whom they are intended. An important part of any loss is closure, and this is my way of seeking that closure.
I never met my dad's father, so...
A poetic afternoon snack
Topical musings from the wise Maya Angelou on the silly divisions we create. If only I could express myself with this kind of confidence.
I note the obvious differences
in the human family.
Some of us are serious,
some thrive on comedy.
Some declare their lives are lived
as true profundity,
and others claim they really live
the real reality.
The variety of our skin tones
can confuse, bemuse, delight,
brown and pink and beige and purple,
tan and blue and white.
I've sailed upon the seven seas
and stopped in every land,
I've seen the wonders of the world,
not yet one common man.
