Neil Reid

Funny, but I heard bare feet. Well, so be it. Your wallpaper is very broad and wide, the invisible river here. Thank you for sharing this Julie.

(Ever play much with chalk and crayons? Wherever that question came from...)

Anthony North

Excellent imagery in this. Conjured up some great scenes in my mind.


Hi Julie,

I agree with Neil that this allows you to roam! 'Bridge to Terabithia' comes into my mind.

Cynthia Short

I enjoyed your travels...and using the "before me" over and over gave me the thought of how there is always much more to experience in life...a nice thought!


This is a very rich wallpaper indeed, appealing to many senses. Thanks for bringing us along on the journey.

This poem really grabs me, Julie. I love the way it insistently opens up new images, seeing without the necessity of a bridge a bridge, urban books and beaches, the call of the honeysuckle...nose flattened against a wall.


Lori Morea

So beautiful! The imagery so vivid, a very happy place indeed!


This poem made consider how we are ever experiencing the world as an outer reflection of our inner states. Its images are varied, crisp, and specific. Beautiful poem. Thank you for it.


I love these urban yearnings. yes, no bridge is necessary…images just flow into each other.

Joseph Harker

A wallpaper of the present that catches your eye and keeps leading it on to new and more beautiful things... wonderful concept and execution of it. And yay for Glen Ridge! A bit far removed from me, but still. :)
