Living in downtown NYC, and Long Island NYS

Tuesday, May 5, 2009


It is still raining.  I am reading about Virginia Woolf's second novel, NIGHT and DAY (1919) in the book, 'Virginia Woolf, an Inner Life', by  Julia Briggs* (2005).   VW penned everything in the early days,  allowed only an hour a day because of stringent rest cures imposed upon her by doctors and Leonard.  It was very frustrating!

*Julia Briggs tragically died 16 August 2007.  

This shot from my studio window that also serves as a spare bedroom.   Tomorrow, a DAY shot, if the weather improves!


  1. Your life is certainly urban! My little city seems very paltry by comparison. Your visitors get a fairyland view of NY. I wish I could be one of them! (But read my poem on flying to realise that I wont ever be!)

  2. I am so envious of your magnificent view! Looking out of the window from my studio/spare bedroom is vastly different. And much less exciting! Hope that rain stops :)

About Me

My photo
JANUS - looking backwards and forwards is a Janus trait - for me a way to record the "in between thought", whether in retrospect, or as a notion for the future. I make original prints, currently etchings. I sometimes write and take photographs. I am inspired by what I see and read. Although postings are chronologically recorded by date and time in this protocol, the images exhibited, often seen in different stages of production, are from another time. So, with each new posting, earlier postings can undergo revision or amplification as will be noted, or requested. The addition of a SNAPSHOTS Blog and a VIRGINIA WOOLF Blog are included because my different interests tend to influence what I do as an artist. There will be a Family Blog, too, for the same reason.
