The trees are bright with orange and we are looking for sunshine in the last
days of fall at Tea at Tympani Lane Records. I have been working with some new
photographs, for Book Covers and Subterranean Blue Poetry masthead. I was at the
Musee du Beaux Arts for the Faberge Exhibit and have some photos of the small
jewel eggs. (they would make great earrings with a fine gold chain). Poetry is
“sending out an S.O.S.”
