“In this collection, we eavesdrop on two friends slanting their truths toward one another; two partners sharing memories, curiosities, and affections...It’s a conversation—intimate, illuminating, and circuitous. (‘Success in circuit lies,’ says Dickinson). For Alex, it’s an ‘unfinished love poem.’ For Rebecca, ‘A gift, this distance we’ve traveled so far.’ “—Collier Brown, from his book review of Slant Rhymes on Photo-Eye. See link in profile.

We’re so pleased that @radius.books is reprinting our long sold-out 2009 "Violet Isle: A Duet of Photographs from Cuba." Like many small nonprofit publishers, Radius needs your help to cover the book’s printing costs, so please consider supporting Violet Isle by ordering a limited edition of the book (ed. of 100; $200) that comes with a signed and numbered book and two signed 5x7-inch prints—one of Rebecca’s (swipe right), and one of Alex’s (swipe right again)—printed on archival paper. Or please consider pre-buying a trade edition of the book, which comes in a cardboard slipcase (signed $65; unsigned $60) referencing the tradition in Cuba of making books from cardboard, string, or other common materials. See link in profile to order either option. Thanks for helping in any way you can, including sharing this with friends. Photos: Violet Isle cover with slipcase; Rebecca Norris Webb, Havana, 2008 (cover image), and Alex Webb, Havana, all from Violet Isle. #violetisle #alexwebb #rebeccanorriswebb

NIGHT HERON MAYBE
I woke to more rain, and felt in the dark
for how wet the sill was, then rolled back
to my radio, and a midnight preacher
in my earphone teaching about sin.
I learned that punishment would come
like lightning that surprises an innocent shore.
Thunder would follow me all my days,
stern reminder and sharp rebuke.
The long, sleek, and pointed call
that rose, as if in response, out of the estuary
of night and storm, said it knew well
what the given world gave, and wanted more.

As you can see, it’s hard to tell my country doctor father and me apart sometimes. (I’m the one without the tongue depressor in my pocket.)—Rebecca Norris Webb. Photo: Mom, “Look Alikes,” from Night Calls. #nightcalls #rebeccanorriswebb

“In a way I spend my entire life stealing from everything—from the past, from cities I love, from where I grew up—grabbing things, taking not only from architecture but from Italy, art, writing, poetry, music.”—Architect Renzo Piano, who turns 80 today.

"The summer demands and takes away too much. /But night, the reserved, the reticent, gives more than it takes..."--John Ashbery, from "Self-Portrait in a Convex Mirror," b. July 28, 1927, Rochester, NY-d. Sept. 3, 2017, Hudson, NY. Photo: Rebecca Norris Webb, Looking South, August, 2017, from Night Calls. #in_memoriam #nightcalls #rebeccanorriswebb

For the past two months, I feel a curious need to be in the company of swans. Mute swans that, it just so happens, aren’t actually mute; something I love about them. And such an otherworldly call—so hushed you have to lean into the darkness to hear their plaintive, counter-tenor cry. Last light, I watch their seven luminous bodies drift closer. Why are they calling to me? Do they think I will feed them? Perhaps it’s because I know too much about them — that those hauntingly beautiful swan songs before death are nothing but sheer myth. Or is it the fact that two people I love are dying so quietly, that each time they call, I hear between their words that same baroque minor key.—Rebecca Norris Webb, for my dear friend, Debra McGehee, who died August 31, 2017 after battling the pain of rheumatoid arthritis with courage, humor, and grace for nearly 40 years.
