What fueled her dreams


Imagine her, sitting alone at dinner, observing the couple at the next table.

Imagine her, watching the man, talking without looking at his companion, as he gently cupped the candle with his left hand.

Imagine her, watching the light bounce from his wedding ring.

Seating arrangement


There are a lot of things I like about this handmade bench: the 2×4 legs (one with paint, one without), the way the carpet’s not centered, the scallops on the bottom edge of the carpet, that dead branch guarding the approach.

But what I like best is thinking that someone missed their loved one so much they build it in the first place.

White on white, 16


Here’s the 16th installment in my intermittent White on White series; this one’s from a hotel room.

You can see the rest of them here.

Window Boots


The antique store (or junk store, or collectibles store, depending on your opinion of the merchandise) was organized thematically. In the western room, several pair of worn boots (or used, or vintage, again depending on your opinion) were lined up in front of the window that faced the highway through town.

Possibility of Storms


I arrived in Alpine in the middle of a thunderstorm. Later, I heard that it was the largest one-day total rainfall ever recorded.

The weather conditions were still good the next day for afternoon clouds to pile up, teasing us with the possibility of more rain.
