A second surprise for you this week! Here’s a little Facebook Fiction for what the kids call Hump Day. Hopefully this little morsel by Brian Reid sends you over the hill and down toward Friday in a pleasant manner. We will see you then.
The sun is beginning to slip away, taking its warmth further west where I would rather be. It is growing dark so early these days. A bright bit of cadmium yellow catches my eye and there, in a tiny crevice cutting through a slab of stone, sprouts a profusion of broad green leaves and bright yellow petals. Taraxacum officinale. Lion’s teeth. Weeds. Impossibly, implausibly, flourishing in the midst of all this cold, grey solidity. I snap a picture. And save it.
