Hello! Sorry for the radio silence. I have a lot of articles that’ll be published in the next few weeks, but I’ve just been quietly working on others. Today’s contribution: A profile of Philadelphia artist Michelle Ortiz: http://www.philly.com/philly/living/20121024_Eyes_on_the_big_picture.html
My article about a business owner’s attempts to clean up a city owned lot leads today’s Daily News. You can read it here: http://www.philly.com/philly/news/20120914_Was_spruce-up_of_Point_Breeze_lot_a_trespass_.html?cmpid=124488459

My “reported essay” about the joys of an August baseball game appeared in the Aug. 11 Sportsweek, the Saturday edition of the Daily News. Can’t find a link to it, but the paper is still on news stands.
