Analect 2.305x

8 July 2008. Hazy sun, warm to the north. 108 in the shade. "I came through Sacramento at 7 o'clock, and it was still 102."

Inversion layer--ocean air pulled up into mist, spreading inland along the coast. Artichoke fields in the fog, figure of a man working, pulling weeds out of the earth. Root and clod.

A freeway overpass, seen from the car, years ago, also in the evening. Coastal fog. Shimmery gray concrete mass to the side of the road, apparition of solidity, whooosh, then gone...

Carmen Funes. La Pasto Verde...
