the first snow came
hard
before all the leaves had fallen

no red, orange and yellows
some still cling
lifeless
ghostly green
to the branch

A nice comment from one of my favorite blogs… A Twisted Pair.  http://atwistedpair.wordpress.com/2010/11/19/someone-elses-shoes/   –

Thanks! But will I be able to get rid of the shoes?

I am wondering – now in my fifth decade – how I have acquired so much stuff – and why do I still want it?

Oh, I think, I paid so much for those shoes and the purse to match and I do so love how pretty they are – but what do I need of turquoise kitten heeled sandals when I walk in the gravel and mud?

Maybe if I could let go of those shoes and the purse – which I haven’t used in some years now – then the rest will fall out of my cluttered house like these last leaves of autumn.

Will it leave me a sparse and cold winter or a time of clarity for reflection?

Letting go is painful, but it is the only way to learn anything new – make ready for spring and growth.

I am very excited that the author of A Twisted Pair has quoted me in the post – Be here now – particularly since I hadn’t remembered writing the comment he quoted and it sounded pretty good – I had one of those, gee, did I write that moments?

But as an artist who has been working almost thirty years for a very limited audience I have been delighted to find others out here in a creative and nourishing nexus.

I am reminded of a professor I had in graduate school in the early 1990s – Teachers’ College, Columbia University.  I was improbably working on (but destined not to finish, thankfully) a Phd in math education. He had returned to teaching after working as an experimental mathematician for Bell Labs and he had done a lot of work on multidimensional geometry. He talked a lot about modeling geometric solids that had more than three connections in space from their vertices – any number, n dimensional! It ended up having a big impact on how phone traffic is routed.

This was all before the internet was much – but I suppose it was a vision as to how it works now – a connection, to a connection, to a connection – almost a living network of nerve cells.

And so we blog. But not to boost our ego, but to lose it in our work, in the game, as we are reminded by A Twisted Pair’s post – out here in the vastness of the internet….

I love looking out my window – over seasons, over days, over hours or minutes.
Just now the orange light over the newly green hill paled to soft yellow and the trees got just a shade darker on their way to indigo.
The vista is closing up fast with new leaves and soon the ridge will be out of sight.
I have pink blue-bells transplanted from my mother’s yard, from my childhood, and I’ve watched them spring up and open over the month.
Slowly the reflection of my room, the electric lights, take over the view out the window,
there is a moment when in and out merge.
