Now Playing Tracks

Well the buzz from the bees is that the leopards are in a bit of a spot. And the baboons are going ape over this. Of course, the giraffes are acting like they’re above it all… The tick birds are pecking on the elephants. I told the elephants to forget it, but they can’t. The cheetahs are hard up, but I always say, cheetahs never prosper…

A new blog…

Hey all! I’ve create a new, specific blog. Below the is description. Please follow it if it sounds interesting to you, help spread the word, and give me suggestions for where to do it next week. Thanks!

Scenes from Sunday began on Easter Sunday, 2011 in the Ravenswood neighborhood in Chicago. With my family far away, in an effort to tap into the sense community Easter Sunday created for me at a young age, I set disposable cameras up on park benches in Lincoln Square and Winnemac Park with a note to neighbors: Please take a picture of your Sunday.

Each Sunday, I will set up a camera in at least one gathering place in Chicago, in the hopes that the spirit and community of the people of one of the greatest cities are able to come through, by way of their own capturing. Sometime in the following week, I will post the pictures that you have taken.

Thanks for joining me in this project to capture OUR Chicago!

I watch your lips moving//
I see the words taking shape//
But love’s like a language//
I cannot translate//
I can’t afford to be careless//
And let you in//
I turn my head for one minute//
And lose everything//
Wish I had someone on whom I could lean//
Cause everybody’s always counting on me//
With my hands held real tight//
Always ready to fight//
For the few pieces of joy I have now//

So don’t let me down//

Why would you think I would recognize//
Something that’s never been mine//
