carvings at midnight

I did my first wood carving since art studio days with the help of Leila. She is turning this into a necklace.

Bird girls can fly

I am a bird girl now
I've got my heart
Here in my hands now
I've been searching
For my wings some time
I'm gonna be born
Into soon the sky
'Cause I'm a bird girl
And the bird girls go to heaven
I'm a bird girl
And the bird girls can fly
Bird girls can fly

Drawing for Antony, who wrote this song. Sometimes, (all the time) a full appropriation of your identity is a struggle. I'm gonna miss the sea; I'm gonna miss the snow. I know.

What if?

The bright tarnish of
his grass-smoked green eyes
made me wait, and think
"What if?"

For a faraway boy

Night Flight

What big eyes you have
that will be an advantage
for watching me undress

You are a high note

I drew this for my best girlfriends. Because they uplift me every day.

Her smile says it all

Jasmine McCray, 15, jumps for joy with Charles LaVallee of Variety the Children’s Charity as she learns that she’s the owner of a new bright-green bike. Five Allegheny County children with disabilities received adaptive bikes Monday in Pioneer Education Center in Brookline through the charity’s “My Bike” program. Since the program’s inception in 2012, Variety has given away more than 700 bikes in 26 counties in Western Pennsylvania and West Virginia. Variety has 250 bikes available for eligible kids.
