Four Sad Words

8 March 2020 – People love messing with the pedestrian crossing signals around here – that little blank face on the mannequin invites all kinds of artistic alternation.

I’d never before seen anybody add text.

A life story, in four words.

And, while I admire the economy and quality of language …

how very sad, the story it tells!

 

  • WALKING… & SEEING

    "Traveller, there is no path. Paths are made by walking" -- Antonio Machado (1875-1939)

    "The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes" -- Marcel Proust (1871-1922)

    "A city is a language, a repository of possibilities, and walking is the act of speaking that language, of selecting from those possibilities" -- Rebecca Solnit, "Wanderlust: A History of Walking"
