A Season So Far Removed ...
A Holiday Blanding Out to Nothing...
Went to the local card and gift store here on Piedmont Avenue. Saddened to see so few Christmas cards for sale. People don't buy them much anymore, said the sales girl.
And they don't send them, either, not to me. I've got so few this year.
Mass e-mailings leave me cold, and are starting to push my finger on instant delete or "junk mail."
Just as the Internet is a fantastic instrument for communication, so too for alienation.
At the card store, I found this image, a clever alteration of a classic Edward Hopper painting. I only sent a few to certain friends, it seems a tad subversive. I love it.
Back in the older bolder mood, may I say to everyone who now and then visits this blog, From Baraboo to Brazil, L.A. to London, Sarasota to Shanghi, Hugo to Montreal to Moscow and Rome ... even somewhere down there in South Africa ...
Merry Christmas, perhaps?
