BrooklynBornThis blog started in my head when I listened in the 90's to friends who feared Brooklyn and newcomers who blogged about BK as if it barely existed before they arrived. Brooklyn as Tabula Rasa. My blog satisfies my need to hear and air feelings of B'klyn from the people whose life experience was born here. Also I hope to provide balance to some of the revisionist historical musings I've seen how Brooklyn and her residents used to be, we're still here. If we can all live as best possible while appreciating the past and neighbors we've inherited that would be great too.

Happy New Year Brooklyn (and those with BK Heart)

This was the first thing I witnessed in daylight of the new 2010 decade:

Something about this seemed significant. A peeling paint in the back of my skull suggested memory of feathers and possibility, but certainty on the subject tangents away from my mind.

Discarded feather
former of warmth and lift,
or perhaps the insulation for future endeavors.

I don't know, truly what the feather means. Anyway I'm going to home depot in Bed-Stuy to gather materials for my nest. It's a new year and I'm building.

Best wishes in 2010
