The Newtown Pentacle

Altissima quaeque flumina minimo sono labi

Maritime pursuits call out to your humble narrator this 18th of March, and the mysteries of Barren Island and the greater Jamaica Bay await. Just a short post today, before I head down to the docks.

This whole “mom is sick again”  business is going as well as it can, but has set me off in a tail spin of guilty self recrimination and brutal self examination. A quick walk around Cavalry yesterday helped to clear my head a bit, but I’m all ‘effed up, and even my little dog Zuzu is worried about me at the moment. Tendencies toward maudlin and tiresome self loathing render me a real “ray of sunshine” at moments like this, but from such psychic manure often bloom new and interesting ideas. In the meantime, I’m just snapping photos.

Some good news is apparent-

One of my photos ended up on the Roosevelt Island community newspaper’s front page. Click here for the latest  Main Street Wire

Also, a Newtown Pentacle reader who once worked at Cavalry Cemetery offers some insight on the mysterious knotted cords I observed back around Halloween. I have another update, in the works, observed there yesterday- more on that next week.

Creek Week, which was truncated by “newsworthy” and “strike while the iron is hot” postings about public ceremonies and parades, will continue- I promise.
