violet-green sparrows

THE SKY WAS BIG and blue and the swallows were violet-green. We were smoking on a boulder on top of the world, or so it seemed, getting too much sun, and the swallows were feeding in the skyspace around us, swerving and circling acrobatically.

the opposite of a favor

Yesterday I ordered an apricot tart at the tea house, and the tea lady insisted I eat it warm.

This photograph was taken near my grandparents' home in Catahoula, presumably on Christmas day. The body of water in the background is Catahoula Lake. There's a boat landing behind the children, my first cousins.

Found this last Sunday on my bike ride. I saw the top of the back of his head peeking out from under the lid of a trash bin that was too full to be completely closed. Only about three inches was visible, but the odd flesh color and the way the plastic was stamped (G-10) made me turn my bike around and take a closer look.

The man is a woman, and he relishes the role, showing the audience his boobies. Arms in the air, smiling like a girl, he shakes them side to side. No one isn't happy. Everyone is laughing. A photographer snaps a picture of a ghost.

pictures to hold

I've been spending a lot of time scanning old photographs recently, and it's been odd to see how often those images from the past seem to resonate with what's happening today.
