Land in the Sky: Work of a Lifetime


At Poets’ Walk Park along the Hudson River. Watched a magicicada nymph, fresh-emerged from seventeen years underground, climbing up the trunk of a big old tulip-tree. A really good climber. Going at it free solo. Looking for a place to hunker down and molt. Climbing and climbing. Climbing and climbing. It seemed to take forever. The work of a lifetime. And then it was over.
