“Old Story” poem published in Eunoia Review

“…Just the feeling, in the suburbs, over coffee, over pavement,
that I didn’t know him at all,
and that I would cease to exist if I left him now.
Just the same old banal love story,
older than Europe and concrete and cuneiform,
that makes every country song a prophecy.”

Girders, abstract sculpture and Philly Jesus in LOVE Park: A run through the ‘Museum Without Walls’ (part two)

IMG_3642_2

You’ve brought tourist friends to PAFA’s giant paintbrush, giggled when Kid Hazo decorated it as a poop emoji, and dodged tourists taking photos in front of the Love sculpture. That’s enough, right?

In the second part of Billy Penn’s effort to get up close and personal with public art (read part one here), I did the Association for Public Art’s Museum Without Walls tour, which is pretty much what it sounds like.

For this issue of Boston Weddings, I wrote about unconventional honeymoon/travel destinations that are an easy direct-flight from Logan airport. Now can I just visit all of them? No proposal required.

I’ve had amazing experiences this past year working for all the incredibly talented people at Boston Magazine in various capacities, from writer to research editor for the Home and Weddings Magazine, to researcher and contributing editor for the March 2013 issue. I’ve had a particularly great relationship with the Home magazine, edited by Rachel Slade. (You can take a look at this issue and past issues at http://www.bostonmagazine.com/home-design/) and read my articles under my Clips page.

 

 

 

I’ve learned a lot from magazine publishing, and with the summer Boston Home issue on its way, I wanted to post my gratitude for being a featured contributor in the spring 2013 issue, alongside many talented writers and photographers. Boston Home is an absolutely top-notch publication, and it was gratifying to participate in putting together an issue dedicated to some of the best art, architecture, and design this area and the nation has to offer.
