“Toward the end of the afternoon all work slacken and all jobs go
Slower as the people feel day closing on them.”
-Carl Sandburg, “Skyscraper” from Chicago Poems.
I took the first hour of my work day today to do something I have been saying I was going to do for years. I hiked down to Shadow Falls and took a picture. Most people who work on campus don’t even know they are a half mile from a waterfall. It was muddy and cold and lonely and I’m glad I went.
Speaking of years going by, this blog is apparently already five years old. To quote Peter Gabriel “but I don’t know how to stop, I don’t know how to stop”.
This last week I sewed a number of buttons on a number of different clothing items (yeah, I’m a complete person full of multitudinous life skills). Buttons remind me of life in the biological sense. There is a subtle and seemingly infinite variation that allows these things to fit different and distinct niches in the world.Embed from Getty Images
