To Yellow Turtle

I made a comment on your retired blog and then it occurred to me that you may not go back to it to read comments. So amble back to the old homestead and check it out if you're interested.

Word of Day - Pentimento

No, not pimento --

pen·ti·men·to [pen-tuh-men-toh] –noun, plural -ti[-tee]
the presence or emergence of earlier images, forms, or strokes that have been changed and painted over.

From 37Days Blog. Referring to handwritten words on a luggage tag. The distinctiveness of that voice, that person, that way of sense-making is contained not only in the very accumulation of words and their meaning, but in their construction as well, those marks and lines and curves. To have them here is as if people have been reanimated for us, requiring movement to make those words, or at least the pentimento of movement.

I Needed Campus Photos Today ...

... for a project I'm working on. I'd seen this class out my window and did a big circuitous route around them taking photos and this was the best shot. Yep, they really do have class out on the lawn on a pretty day -- just like in the brochures. There was even another class outside at the same time, but not in the same pastoral pose and setting as this one. You know, it's all about the photo op.

Would you like to have class here on a nice spring day?

And while I was at it, fired off a few more shots. Never took a picture of the mall from this angle before.

Cool tree.
