Versions of times and happiness.

yesterday1 , the remains of a rusting bolt on a coal
pier extending from a bridge, in both directions, in
Providence, probably early 20th century, maybe earlier.
the geometry takes on a life of its own, weathering of
course over decades. ah, such sadness in happiness,
happiness in sadness, a memory and massaged message
towards the future, perhaps from the future as well.

yesterday2 , the intensity and delight of, for us,
the first goldfinch of the season, a reminder of the
beautiful heyday days of Gilbert and George, and how
the minuteness of the world resonates, as if forever,
in a fleeting glance.

yesterday3 , a perfect day for a perfect wedding, at
Grace Church, Providence, still and video cameras in
happy use, a wedding which took our breath away, how
wonderful the community coming together in celebration
that will be remembered for a long long time to come.

not writing satire or disrespect, but in awe at the
beauty of the world, to this silent passer-by, seeing
everything, missing nothing, even hubcaps, beak and
bolts shine with an inner light on an amazing spring
day, a walk through Providence on a cool and sunny
afternoon.
