Contributor Notes

I’ve always enjoyed and been inspired by cities, which I tend to think of as “urban landscapes” when I’m hiking through them.  After having seen an amazing night time photo series entitled “La Ciudad Dormida”, I found myself pondering all the creativity which is alive in urban settings.  Eventually, well after midnight, the thoughts settled into something like a poem which I named after its inspiration.

After having received a little moleskin notebook as a gift, I started trying to arrange ideas previously written on scraps of paper, into poems.  I enjoy trying to sculpt inspired thoughts into words and phrases.  I am thankful to be growing closer to this form of expression.
