100 Day Art Challenge Began October 1st
As I begin the third month of my 100 Day Art Challenge, the inspiration that I had hoped for continues in a contiguous fashion, swimmingly, like salmon that slide upstream to a sense of home. My home is where creativity can count backwards and forwards simultaneously. Then I can be happy.

You’re invited to the Placitas Solstice Reading on December 21, 2019
I don’t celebrate New Year’s Eve, in the South Valley, we just try to avoid the bullets in the sky.
For the past 10 years, I celebrate the close of the year on Solstice Day at the Presbyterian Church in Placitas, New Mexico.
Each year, the church holds a candlelight poetry reading on the solstice evening, starting at 7:00 PM, where poems about solstice light are read in a darkened room lit by a single candle. I have been reading there each year for a decade I consider this the Superbowl of poetry readings.
Last 2 stanzas of my poem for this year
Flowers pray to their departed cathedral,
demon dancers flicker at her winter throne,
no apologies for the significance of a disappearance,
the dark solitude of envy, her battle cry.
The lower world where all edges are circular,
the upper world where all reflections signify possibility.
Till next year, Richard
