Magnetic poetry (Or: In the public library of The Hague)

When I was in the central library last week in The Hague, I came across a poetry exhibition using magnetic poetry:

I had a few magnetic sets of my own over the years, but they ended up just gathering dust in my closet. I did give instructions to Mom to give them to the neighbor’s kids if they were interested, so maybe the random joy of making (and destroying) poems can come alive again.

  1. I need to get some of those! Also, I am finishing up a book called “My Father’s Gun” by the man named Brian McDonald. It is about 3 generations of NYC cops that got their start in Pearl River. Thought it was pretty neat. 🙂

  2. Cool read! I had no idea – never heard of the book, although I only lived in Pearl River for just over three years. If you’re interested in New York City and cops, I highly recommend “Friends of the Family” ( which is a true story about two cops who helped the Mafia by giving them information leading to eight murders. They were indicted in 2005.
