Im Sorry

I'm Sorry

I'm sorry I leave you
something I must find
You have it You hide it
something you deny

Wild love calls your name
Wild love still remains

What held you What holds you
now you let it go
I'm sorry I leave you
will you follow

Wild love calls your name
Wild love still remains

Still it's true the want you stir in me
restlessly, wanting you the way I do

Everything you want
I want it too

I'm sorry

I'm sorry I want you
like you always knew
I'm sorry I'm faithful
only wanting you

I'm sorry

Post #343

There's a war going on. 

Is it interesting tearing apart the spontenaity of art with peices of a carefully crafted image that sells the senses? I'm detached.
Photographs of passion and desire, songs of flames and raging fire hang around the last round fighting myself and my shadows. It became harder to frame time in an interesting way.
Who am I when I have no mirror?

I need a muse.

Preserving Fishtown's Churches

We done well

Fishtown is doing well in preserving its old churches from demolistion. They have been converted into office space, studio, homes and apartments. The trade off was unwelcomed density that has already become unabridgable for Fishtown residents.
On the other hand these churches sat vacant or could no longer support themselves with the sharp decline of parishiners and for other reasons. These churchs are a part of Fishtown history and its development with much honest sentimental feelings, but things change.
Fishtown only lost one church in recent time: Pilgrim Congregational United Church Of Christ at Belgrade and Marlborough.
Preservation can also include the elements of compromise and leverage. An empty church can't stand alone because things change as do the options.

 Second Association of Spiritualists  1891 Thompson St by Frankford Ave (the story)
Episcopal Emmanuel Church on Marlborough St just above Girard Avenue.

 East Montgomery Avenue Methodist Episcopal Church 1875 by Frankford Ave.
Saved from demolition.
 Methodist Siloam Church 1876 on Susquehanna Ave and Livingston St (story)

 East Baptist Church at 1236 E. Columbia Ave. by Moyer St
 Fifth Reformed Dutch Church, Kensington 1863-1886 aka The Church of the Living Word
 St Laurentius RC Church 

 Pilgrim Congregational United Church Of Christ at Belgrade and Marlborough

Fishtown Street Signs pt2

The old and the new old street sign.

There are not many cornerstone street markers left in Fishtown. I found about twelve and wonder what I may have missed. You'll see five other cornerstones here. I also found less than a dozen small blue street signs affixed to a corner store or house. There's only eight different streets that still have the blue sign. It gives Fishtown a nice little touch of changing times.

 A different spelling
