fancy reality

denise bellon via afterall

in los angeles, may is a strange month, full of deception. spring bloom, changing seasons, expectations. it's a transitional place.  i am more mindful of the two sides of change on the east coast. spring on the east coast is sunny mornings broken by afternoon thunderstorms.  storms that drop in without warning, tearing at new blooms, clearing just as quickly. they leave behind the smell of fresh earth. los angeles spring is tricky.  the obvious changes are all sunshine and technicolor, the storms are quiet--white mornings, night winds and shifting gazes. they leave behind the smell of dirt.

for the first time, in many years, i am looking forward to june, to it's bright, obvious light, and straightforward behavior.
