When Bodhi was fixated on something in the kitchen window I thought it would turn out to be a pigeon. It was a dragonfly. There were actually around ten of them. I used to see them a lot downtown, when I worked for the Census in the financial district of Manhattan. The most beautiful of insects. And, I just read that they eat mosquitos, so YAY dragonflies!
I've written six non-fiction books, the most recent is Damnation Island: Poor, Sick, Mad, and Criminal in 19th-Century New York.View all posts by Stacy Horn →
