Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving from BillyBlog, live from the bike on the 68th Street
Pier in Bay Ridge.

May your Thanksgiving weather be as lovely as the 58 degrees, breeze, and
sunshine we are experiencing this morning!

Thoreau, Poetry in Motion, Q Train, Manhattan Bridge

"Men Say They Know Many Things"

Men say they know many things;
But lo! They have taken wings,--
The arts and the sciences,
And a thousand appliances;
The wind that blows
Is all that anybody knows.

--Henry David Thoreau

New Poetry in Motion poster(!)

Spied on the N train, 5:47 pm, November 9, 2007:

"If there is something to desire"

If there is something to desire,
there will be something to regret.
If there is something to regret,
there will be something to recall.
If there is something to recall,
there was nothing to regret.
If there was nothing to regret,
there was nothing to desire.

--Vera Pavlova
(b. 1963)
Translated from the Russian by Steven Seymour
