Ozark autumn

Just a little roadside scene, somewhere in the middle of Arkansas.

A couple of things here

First of all, it may come in handy to know that you can apparently get a handful of cemetery flowers for a dollar.

Second, this should quiet, forever, those doubters who say that cats do not go to heaven. Obviously they do: why else would this cat have angel wings?

Angel, grounded

And here’s a cemetery angel, helpfully illustrating “dust to dust” for anyone who happens by.

Catenary

“Catenary*” is a word I learned in architecture school and haven’t used since. Obviously that degree was well worth the my time and my parents’ money!

But it was still in my head, all these years later**, and when I looked at the arc of those curtains and the arcs of the power line shadows, it popped up.

*Catenary = a curve formed by a wire, rope, or chain hanging freely from two points and forming a U shape.

**Here are some things from architecture school that didn’t stick around in my head: anything involving calculus or structural design, most of architectural history, the difference between a muntin and a mullion, and whatever the hell hegemony is.

 

 

 

Parking/no parking

Can you park here, or not? This place confused me, so it’s a good thing I was a pedestrian…
