There was the trainride and the van ride. Old friends in new settings that were really their native settings. There was the bomb scare, and the concert. The lunch and the revelation. A visit to a building that hadn’t been there 15 years ago, and to one that’s been there for over 100. Reuniting participants in a one-sided crush. Watching behavioral loops ossify and tighten. Crying and singing and SINGING and sending music out in as many directions as possible.
We were going about 45 mph when I snapped this. Maybe you can see the time distortion through the lack of crispness in this image?
I’m kind of surprised there was any definition at all…
Or maybe they just rumble on in a different key.
Seriously. People grumble about weather in the 40s and this is happening down the block:
I should be grateful at least evening looks about right:
There were bees out today. I’m happy for them being able to get a last snack or two, but really. BEES?
Fine. Click through to some hysterical Torch Songs in which the word ‘Me’ has been replaced by “Bees”.
As I drove, I could see the anvil clouds and lightning flashes off to the south of my route. For most of my trip, I kept hoping that the rains would stay down that way, since my path was pretty much due west, and maybe I’d get out of this ridiculous flytrap truck before I had to rely on the windshield wipers again. [It is not so much that the wiperblades were bad, as it was that I’d got sufficient bugs splattered on the windshield as to make lots of translucent smears when the wipers were in operation…]
Ominous signs that this or that 260 acres were available for “development”. The thunk and rattle of the now-empty truck box. Are they called truck boxes? It’s the box part of the truck… Cargo area?
Drive, drive, chase the fading light all the way home….
But we did have an awesome sunset earlier in the week…
