Sienna bricks

"...the powdery glow floating
the street with evening—saffron, rose, sienna

bricks, matte gold, to be the good steam
clanking pipes, that warm music glazing the panes,
each fugitive moment the heaven we choose to make."

From "Suite for Emily" by Lynda Hull


It's hard to find the time to stop and look at things, even in the middle of looking at things, especially in the middle of lots of looking at things.

But I did, there, in Sienna.

I am glad you stopped to look too.

Dear Blogger,

We're writing to you from the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University to ask you to help us by joining a panel of bloggers. As an active blogger, your involvement in this panel will help us answer important questions about the practices and opinions of bloggers around the world.

It takes ten minutes to answer our first set of questions. With your permission, we periodically will send you new short surveys on different topics. We promise not to share your personal information with anyone, and we'll do our best to make this as fun and interesting as possible. We'll also give you early access to our results. To complete the survey, please visit the following link:

Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have. You can reach us at or view our FAQ at

Thank you in advance for your time.
