Autumn is here,

and the leaves are changing color. I moved all the way to Brooklyn from Central Florida in September, and I am so happy to be in New York City.  I love the way the trains move, sound. The way the air feels different, grounds you through its thinness. On some days I wake up and cannot believe I am here. Other days I wake up and feel as if I know exactly where I am. On most days, though, I experience a blend of both–the weight of first landing and the movement of adventure, of knowing a certain direction.

Before I left my home in Orlando, I performed “Body, Out + 7 Ways of Unfolding” at The Space. This performance was part of a larger show, I Believe in You. In my previous post, I write about this powerful night.

Watch “Body, Out + 7 Ways of Unfolding” here:

Thank you, Jared Silvia, for filming.

I have a few more exciting announcements:

I’m honored to announce that on November 24th, I will be hosting Poetry Cover Night at The Bowery Poetry Club with Sarah Herrington.  I also have writing forthcoming in The Ampersand Review and Voicemail Poems, and some of my photography is forthcoming in Gulf Stream.

Earlier this year, The Doctor T.J. Eckleburg Review exhibited Energies in their art gallery. Soon, I will be featured as a Spotlight Artist in this journal, which is a privilege. I am grateful.

And last Month, The Ampersand Review published my poem “San Andreas Fault,” which you can read here:

And lastly, I’m happy to announce that Joe Kapitan’s new book, A Pocket Guide to North American Ghosts, is out with Eastern Point Lit House!  I’m thankful that he chose my photograph “Madrid, New Mexico” to be on the cover. You can buy the book here: http://www.easternpointlithouse.com/#!product/prd1/1132467191/a-pocket-guide-to-north-american-ghosts

I am sending you all good energy as we move through autumn and into winter. Thank you for reading.

With gratitude,

Ashley
