Labradoodle with a prancing step

kids , mixed up blond and nappy and brown

reciting Japanese cat names

Yoshi, Miko, Satsuma

Black haired cutie gives up a seat

Bus crowd rolling park side

 

Open bag

warm humidity rising

yes, the travel mug has opened

notebook cover splashed with coffee

 

 

Love enfolds us

Hand in Hand Mural Project

 

Design by Kathy Creutzburg

Your suggestions and feedback are welcomed and invited as we proceed with the mural project.

The Hand in Hand mural project will hold a meeting Weds July 6th at 6:00 PM in the sanctuary. PSUMC 6th Ave and 8th St., Brooklyn, NY 11215

 

We will be discussing the next phases of the project including developing and finalizing the design for the mural,  a timeline for installation and outreach to engage folks interested in drawing, painting and doing the hands-on work of the project over the summer.

What are your responses to the questions:

  1. What do you love about our church?
  2. What do you want to say to our friends and neighbors who are interested in our church?

 

Love, Sarah

 

 

 

Subway Three F train

Standard

 

A certain whiteness of summer in the florescent light

a silent buzzing in between the ears

A tall , dark gentlemen offers me a seat

silent praises, thanks

 

Time is tangible

brightness of 15 minutes early

sadness, fatigue behind heavy eyes

 

smells of morning showers, soapy product sprays

probing, surveying for insight

touching sadness in the sunlight

swampy, soggy

 

last night at the kitchen table

we spoke into each others eyes

the tides of our losses

pushing us together

WIN_20140926_222827Cold legs   cold spring

This May begs a warm lilac scarf

a bowtie and suspenders

 

Sit! sit! no, you sit

friends in camel coats and false eyelashes

flashing golden light over my shoulder

Morning in Brooklyn, moving by

pretty legs, sleepy eyes phones

no newspapers

 

roller curls very much the girl

roll along the car shakes and shudders

rolling the town underground
