Moondance; celebrating creative women
Resembling a nightmarish beast rearing its head from a crimson sea, this monstrous object is actually an innocuous pillar of gas and dust. Called the Cone Nebula (NGC 2264) - so named because, in ground-based images, it has a conical shape - this giant pillar resides in a turbulent star-forming region. ACS made this observation on April 2, 2002. Credit: NASA, H. Ford (JHU), G. Illingworth (USCS/LO), M.Clampin (STScI), G. Hartig (STScI), the ACS Science Team, and ESA

the woman who was almost a woman; by audra jones
It was very crowded when we arrived. Hot. Stuffy. Felt like a cramped rag stuffed in a sweltering mouth. The pews were all taken, filled with crying babies, shushing mothers, restless children, don't-you-think-about-it-eyeing fathers, and elderly people, eyes closed and rocking to a hum that only they could hear. I would have been one of those restless children sitting in the pews--but I wasn't.

the digital visionary art of john vega
"The visionary, transpersonal art of John Vega provides a powerful, illuminating expression both in oil on canvas and pixels in the digital realm. That he can crossover from one medium to the other with such masterly dexterity, and unique vision, is a tribute to his creative expansiveness, as well as being a pleasure to all those who enjoy his art. "

sista, granma, mum; by donald g. carty
This clean and tidy home is furnished with simple useful things, tired and worn from use, old enough to have stories. It is filled with sunlight and the smell of baking, as a tiny God-fearing woman moves through her daily rituals, preparing for another family gathering.
