The title Entropvisions is in homage to my mother, the poet and art critic, Harriet Zinnes. In 1990 New Directions published a collection of her poems titled Entropisms, a word she made-up combining entropy - the tendency toward disorder - and tropism - the growth towards or away from a stimulus. Similarly, my short reviews combine entropy and tropism by suggesting growth towards a vision of art from the chaos of the art world.

Lawrence Ferlinghetti Dies

Another great is gone. He was clear-thinking until the end, publishing his last book just last year at age 100. I remember watching a recent video of him a few months ago, and was amazed at his youthful energy, clarity, strength and of course his ever-present belief in poetry and art.  Please read the NY Times obituary.
