5778 (On Being)

This year Matthew Septimus and I  decided to honor County Route 20 (its fictional name is County Route 22!) a very beautiful road in Greene County  full of life and people and the beauty that is New York.  Imagine the opposite beauty from  Tuscany.  Of course the road has a beginning and an end, but it seems to go on forever.  This country road is larger in so many ways than What Happens. It is held by the earth, and by the sky, and it leads right up,  Our hope is that people everywhere think of the words of Rabbi Ben Yehuda who said “this is the birthday of creation, a tradition that recognizes frailty, freedom of choice, and responsibility, that calls on us to re-create ourselves anew, to come closer to living in accord with our ideals and highest values. L’shana nova to all those who believe and all those who improvise.”

Esther Cohen
Let me tell you why I'm here, and why I hope you'll join me. I am here to poem, to play with words, to tell stories when I can, and to ask you for yours. Words are what I love, how I see, and what I say. Words are how I know my life, and how I find my friends. I'm here to ask you to join me. Right here. To send me your stories, and your poems. And to read mine when you can.
