What a beautiful week we are having here in New Jersey. Blue skies are overhead, fluffy pink-blossomed trees are in the park, even the year's first dandelions are popping up on the lawns. Not that you would get that from looking at the photo above! I took this photograph while walking through one of my favourite local parks. There's a grand old stable on the grounds along with the remains of a sheep pen and a chicken coop. In front of the chicken coop is a gnarly old tree, split in two. There's a ghostly, poetic feeling to the place.
Speaking of poetry, my friend, Elizabeth Wix, has recently released her new book, New Roof in October. I love the way Elizabeth sees our world and then puts it into words. She's a visual writer; I never imagined "eyes on airplanes" but those words certainly formed an image in my mind after reading her poem of the book's title. Elizabeth is currently giving away two copies of New Roof in October on her blog. The draw is this Saturday so make sure you visit her today!
