I chose this to pair with Aaron’s poem, only the two just so happen to appear in separate posts. Please imagine proximity.
The writing and art posted on this blog are gleaned primarily from the Internet. This is work that I admire and find beautiful or moving. You could think of Big Window as a commonplace book that has gone
public. Or you might think of it as an inspiration portal. On this blog you can find:
- writings exercises and prompts (the Open series)
- the best in abstract photography
- great poems I discover in my reading
- experimental writing
- video poetry and art
- visual poetry
- mixed genre work
- graphic design
I’m fascinated with the creative process which is why I also post pages from the notebooks and journals of artists and writers on Moleskine Monday.
The purpose of this blog is to amplify the attention given to the amazing writers, artists, and creatives who are responsible for the work posted here.

When the earthquakes throw you and your desk out the window,
the desk above you will protect you. You’ll live on the
sidewalk, not even cut.
Run back upstairs and check your lights.
Call me if they’re all green. I’ll say That can’t be
