Leonard Nimoy captures Martin Espada

I don't usually get to the Arts section of the New York Times in the morning, but today a photo exhibit by Leonard Nimoy caught my eye: he has an exhibit at Mass MoCA in North Adams titles "Secret Selves," and as I scrolled through the photos, there was my favorite living poet, Martin Espada, and his son Clemente!

Martin says that when he was a kid, he wanted to be a gangster when he grew up.  I can't say that was an ambition of mine, but I and my cousins certainly played "Gangsters" a lot as a kid, and my gangster name was Sadie.

Check out the exhibit and also check out Katherine Gilbert-Espada's art page.  What a household!
