Does anyone remember those side by side cartoon panels where you were asked to find 5 differences between the 2 panels?
Captured between the reach and the touch.

From the time it took to walk downstairs and wheel the bell out to the sidewalk, the sky went from a sliver of red glow to complete white out. Just like that.

August 4, 2020. Sunset 8:14 PM.

Our neighbor must have finished his project with the power tools. All the birds took the night off or were celebrating elsewhere. So, it was just us ringing on the sidewalk. Thanks Elisabeth and Norman!

Day 135 Something Ordinary

August 3, 2020. Sunset 8:15 PM.
San Francisco, CA.


Tonight was the first time this felt like a mundane necessity- like getting the mail or putting out the trash. Our nearest neighbors nod or wave as they go about their own business - silently incorporating our routine into theirs. It felt very comfortable. Ordinary.

Ironwood, MI.


“The pink in the trees is the reflection from the sunset. It was only for a moment as the sun was setting and it was the reflection from the lake. The brightness was so much inside the house it stopped me. The I looked outside in the woods. It was only by accident I saw this. It was gone in a moment.”
