Script Rud-



"All day all over the city every person
Wanders a different city, sealed intact
And haunted..."

From "City Elegies" by Robert Pinsky

And, since I'm a font geek from way back, something extra.

inspiration, all of it
comme d'habitude
but damn
speed reading in a broom closet
is NOT suited to poetry

best, chica - some of the font treatments are already cooking away in my head :-)

Check out Allison V. Smith, photographer. Particularly check out her Marfa series.

Hi there!

RL: Thankyewverrymuch! Ooh, don't forget to turn down the flame under those fonts lest you have this:

Shelly: Will do, and you know I'll be a short drive from Marfa this weekend...here's hoping my road-trip friend is patient (and that her back holds up for the 7+ hour drive).

A side-note for Shelly:

I went to Carmen's Cafe the last time I was in Marfa. Darn good Tex-Mex, slant light through cheap lace curtains, homely hand-painted murals, a cabal of tough-looking middle-aged ladies dishing over lunch, some old frail gentlemen, and no sign of the foo-foo arts community except for one table's denizen wearing Euro-styled eyeglasses. Oh, and there was the lady with the green parrot...

From back when I was playing with a digital camera for the first time ever:

This one looks like a response to the last one...

Hope your Blue Monday turns into that kind of blue.
