Rocket Stove

A small one, built by Mike Harter at The Foundry before October’s puppet show. Wikipedia says a rocket stove “is an efficient cooking stove using small diameter wood fuel which is burned in a simple high-temperature combustion chamber containing an insulated vertical chimney which ensures complete combustion prior to the flames reaching the cooking surface.”

Live Forever

I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna cross that river
I’m gonna catch tomorrow now

You’re gonna wanna hold me
Just like I’ve always told you
You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone

Nobody here will ever find me
But I will always be around
Just like the songs I leave behind me
I’m gonna live forever now

You fathers and you mothers
Be good to one another
Please try to raise your children right

Don’t let the darkness take ’em
Don’t make ’em feel forsaken
Just lead ’em safely to the light

When this old world is blown asunder
And all the stars fall from the sky
Remember someone really loves you
We’ll live forever you and I

I’m gonna live forever
I’m gonna cross that river
I’m gonna catch tomorrow now

No Formal Training

Local creative person Sarah Bishop, interviewed by Newell in Buffalo Rising: “I have no formal training in photography. In fact, I have no formal training in any number of pursuits that I have undertaken over the years. The recurring lesson through such a methodology is a valuable one: I am able to create and make manifest my truest desires without the persistent need for perfection. And I am best able to explore the vastness that only an untrained mind can produce.”

Sarah’s current show is Metamorphosis, Mundo Images, 500 Franklin Street. Opens during the Greater Allentown First Friday Gallery Walk on November 1.
