Raked shadow

"...the one-dimensional
belief of enamel in itself,
the furious autonomy
of luster..."

Hola Lori!

Great days in 2008 :)

Many goods pictures, words and wishes.

I signed off on using the word "iconic" for 2008, so I'll have to invent something to get the thrust and impact inherent in this photo. Maybe "semiotic"? Whatever. It is emblematic of modern American culture and should have a place on the dollar bill.

Kids in India and Japan are given their first computers at age five and six. We give our kids their first Chevy at that time.

We are losing the war on science but we know how to hot-wire Chevys.

You're off on a fine new year.
