3 July 2008. Sparkling sun. Gray-pink slumpstone wall, mansard roof with worn shingles, small escutcheon sign, captain's wheel. Wind in the plum.
Dark red leaves, deep velvet, absorbing light as if there were no tomorrow.
Or Corrientes. Single figure on a river--shallow water's edge. Reeds and water grasses, green banks merging with greener stream.
Last week: standing alongside the Brabant--a Belgian draft animal, 19 hands at the withers. Golden brown--a sorrel--gleaming coat and well-trimmed mane. Huge head, patient eyes.
