The sun made a half-hearted appearance at five p.m., shining through the balcony railing. Bad angle, bad shadows, bad girl for being so impatient!
[ ] This is a high tech solar energy experiment, and every delay adds billions to the National Deficit. Or not.
[ ] This is kitchen sink shoestring experiment proceeding at a snail's pace and requiring:
- A seven dollar picture frame from WalMart
- A lazy Susan
- A cutting board of a certain thickness
- An adult beverage
- Toes to turn the lazy Susan
- A bathtub
- Hydrogen peroxide
- A sweater drying rack
[ ] Seated in the old-red-starting-to-rip-soccer-mom chair, turning the lazy Susan with my toe to mitigate the balcony rail exposure on the sun print I contemplated the nature of art, the art of snails, and my personal need to balance practical and creative pursuits while wearing a hat made of aluminum foil. Or not.
