sweeping wings/mood shifts 

Crows in the field out back of work swoop to get food from the road, dodging a motorcycle. Silver rain falls in my heart on this perfectly blue-skyed morning as memories surface because of the time of year. Back in '01 this time my father lay dying and although good things surround me my heart feels heavy and pained- there's that dark ICU room that doesn't ever seem less cruel. Everyone gets dealt a hand like this at one time or another. Big handfuls of prizes, sand, or sorrows. Tides go in and then recede.
It's difficult to put down bittersweet sentiments. Been listening to Sufjan Stevens lately- his words adeptly describe little sorrows and pleasures so well- and I wonder if this young man has really been through some of these things he writes about, or is he simply a fascile writer? My mind cannot process words for how I feel. Images seem more expressive, and I wish I could share colors and textures on this blog, and transcend the banality of it all. "Girl posts photos of empty beaches on grey days on her LiveJournal"- it's all been done before. Trapped in the tedium of emotions that seem unique, knowing they are simply common.
Carry on.

Reubens a-go-go 

Wow, those guys really have done the research. My favorite reuben is no more, alas. It came from Joe Reuzer's Deli in Fountain Square, and it was so large I would have to split one with Jeep. That was a great little deli there- quality Boarshead meats and cheese, good bread, and the most unusual collection of soft drinks I've seen in Indianapolis. Lots of tiny brands brewed in someone's basement then marketed by some exceptionally hip art goofball using color schemes developed in New Jersey in 1956. Every time I walk by that empty space I scowl. Miss them. RIP.

Humongoid Plastics Fire in Warehouse, Greendale, Indiana

My brother-in-law Rob Schuette and about 150 other fireman were involved in this blaze that caught fire in an old brick warehouse in Greendale, Indiana. The building was once probably used in the whiskey making businesses of Lawrenceburg and Greendale, where once Schenley made liquor and where Seagrams still does make booze.

Click on the slideshow to see just how big this fire was.

Kittens and Cats: We saw this big boy at the Chicago Zoo last summer. And saw this kitten inside my computer tonite.
