Archives, today.

One is not normally at a loss for words, but since the events which played out over the weekend have thoroughly “shivered me timbers,” that is the case. Accordingly, a few archive shots are on offer today, depicting heavenly bodies and stormy weather.

Rumors? You betcha. Utterly disturbing behavior? Yup. The worst yet to come? Probably. What’s next? Amphibians raining from the skies? Alien invasion?

I’ll tell you one thing, every bad thing I’ve ever written about Mayor Bill De Blasio has absolutely been an understatement. His Mayoralty effectively ended this last weekend.

Back tomorrow with some more usual fare, at this, your Newtown Pentacle.

Oh, and NYC Charter Chapter 1, section 9. Pass it on.

Note: I’m writing this and several of the posts you’re going to see for the next week at the beginning of the week of Monday, June 1st. My plan is to continue doing my solo photo walks around LIC and the Newtown Creek in the dead of night as long as that’s feasible. If you continue to see regular updates as we move into April and beyond, that means everything is kosher as far as health and well being. If the blog stops updating, it means that things have gone badly for a humble narrator.

  1. I am not surprised you’re choosing to stay away, far away. The crowds of men and madness aren’t your ken or kin. Stick to regaling us of what you know best, I suppose. The creek will endure, that and the the hidden waterways, though buried they may eventually be.
