Experiment in Text: Slow Yes

Uh-oh.! Definitely tricky, but it will be very fun (any tips from those of you that are Photoshop experts?). This image above came from a walk I took this week, in the weirdly warm Ohio temperatures (which are now gone again). My neighborhood is bricky.

Happy weekend, everyone! What projects are keeping you occupied these days?


  1. When my husband first got into photoshop years ago, he bought a ton of magazines from the bookstore (a lot of them come with great tutorials and neat tips). He still gets them from time to time to learn new skills...that's all I've got. Love to you!!

  2. This is a fun creation. I'd love to see it on a bricks-and-mortar building.

  3. This photo is perfect for your poem...I am too busy with a proposal to be engaged in anything now..I enjoy your writing...seems like it is how I start the day before I plunge into the chaos and stress...I would like to do sth different though, with the other side of my brain...for example, put to words one day of my trip that my mind keeps going back to for refuge...happy weekend Hannah!

  4. I'd love to see poems on the side of buildings like this, so future generations can puzzle over them like we do old coca-cola logos. This is nostalgic in a burma-shave kinda way. I can see a who series developing in this way (I call the windows of diners!)

  5. Very clever, putting the text of the poem on the dark glass windows of the office building. Love it.

    Thank you for your comment on my latest post. Whenever I write intellectual pieces traffic soars but few people comment.
