As the saying goes: “A jack of all trades is a master of none, but often times better than a master of one.” I like to experiment in many creative forms, professionally as a software engineer and for fun I have experimented with Photography, Pottery, Writing (prose and poetry). My current big experiment is Printmaking. I am the owner of D.M. Penny Press, a printmaking studio in Manchester NH. The studio has been in operation since 2015 and I do offer limited memberships for experienced prinkmakers looking for access to a press and other equipment. If interested see the membership info on the web page.
I’m lying here with windows wide open. A gentle breeze carries in the evening air, Scented, the spring time dogwoods are in bloom. Leaves rustle in the sway of evening breezes. Night noises, lovers sing, hunters stalk their prey. Full moon, silver light, colors distorted, Mosaic patterns fall across the bed. The candle flames protest the invasion, Flickering, the dresser, marred with hot wax. A cooling damp sheet clings to my body. I feel cold, except where you have settled. Holding your body gently in my arms, As I remember the intensity. In this strange light, I watch your peaceful sleep, I listen to the rhythm of your breath. Seeking to continue the connection, Lying next to you, I start to slow down. Sounds begin to fade, following your lead, I begin to breathe in rhythm with you As the gentle breeze steals my consciousness. David Gray
