Analect 2.87x

24 April 2007, Tuesday. Billowy white clouds over tops of uphill elms. What kind of day? Gary's talk last night--his narrow face, now gray at the temples. Shades of Dan in the wryness. Davis, 1979, a point to begin. Sunlight and straw bales. California Aqueduct, huge pipelines over the Tehachapis, power from Mt. Shasta. Run of the land. Utilities diagram for Units 1 and 2 ("poetically named"), maze of gas and electric, underground. "New York infrastructure as deep as the Chrysler building." All giving one pause. Beautiful chapel in Houston; every shot a sense of repose, intended that way. Light reflecting from narrow channel of water running along inside of a high concrete wall. "This is in the morning." Ending with the tides, Land's End, Sutro Baths...
