This book of poems and song lyrics covers over 20 years of living and creating in New York City. I live in the East Village section of Manhattan. The poem themes are summed up in the sub title - Love. Nature. Song. I write several poems/songs about NYC in particular and gentrification. I have been writing poems since I was a child and then switched to writing songs for many years during my music career. Around 10 years ago I retired from show business and traveled/backpacked the world and upon returning to NYC started to write more classic style poetry. My nickname is Sto and thus Sto-etry! Enjoy!

This poem sums up the feeling one gets when you fall in what I call fantasy love. The person may or may not even be a realistic partner but it does not matter to your mind, which has decided upon an entire future scenario involving you and the the person of your fantasy love projection.
