Cotton Candy Popcorn

"...something I can't afford to be without - not in today's market. (Silly me! I almost said not in today's world, but that would have been inaccurate. A world is something whole, isn't it, something that can be said to have a positive charge and rhythm of its own. A world is also something we can take comfort in being a part of, but that has all been lost. It has all been lost, so that all we have left is a dirty stinking bazaar, a rat race, where everything, including the health and care of one's body is measured in terms of commerce. Now there is no rhythm. Now there is the universal equivalent of giant, legal fingernails being pulled across a blackboard, and the blackboard is owned by an insurance company posing as a long-lost friend."

Someday, maybe, you'll take a little group on a photo safari with you.

Gosh one day you're a Friday Flower guy and today you're a dirty stinking rat race guy. Neat photo here. Green lighting nicely enhances the unappealing call for popcorn.

William has a way of seeing the many truths of day.

Great shot.
