me in the piazza

I'm a writer, publishing both as SJ Rozan and, with Carlos Dews, as Sam Cabot. (I'm Sam, he's Cabot.) Here you can find links to my almost-daily blog posts, including the Saturday haiku I've been doing for years. BUT the blog itself has moved to my website. If you go on over there you can subscribe and you'll never miss a post. (Miss a post! A scary thought!) Also, I'll be teaching a writing workshop in Italy this summer -- come join us!

Went out yesterday to the Brooklyn Botanic Garden to see the cherry trees. Springtime cherry blossom viewing, what the Japanese call Hanami and do much more decorously than we do. Lots of boisterousness in the Garden yesterday, lots and lots of people enjoying the trees, the new grass, the sunshine. I shouldn't have gone; have WAY too much to do, no time to be strolling slowly down pathways in Brooklyn in bright cool weather under a perfect azure sky, looking at over 200 cherry trees of different varieties at different stages of blooming, from tight cerise dots to frothy white flowers. On the other hand, why does time exist at all, if not to do this in? Herewith, some highlights. More on Flickr; just click any of these. (Yes, I know one's a crabapple and one's a white magnolia, thank you.)
