The image is from a phone camera, taken inside the security barrier at the San Antonio airport. I was headed someplace, west, be my guess, and I saw that as I emerged from the coffee shop, which was conveniently located right next to the book store.
But isn’t that a little weird? “Here, we’ll recycle your book – for free.” What a nice offer. Resell? Donate and take the tax write-off? Not that I’d be suspicious, but I have a number of outlets for used books. Friends, family, cohorts, enemies, and so forth. I tend to try and resell the books, when I can. Either suggest and pass on to avid readers, or possibly repurpose as landfill. Although, I’ve found, just because I don’t like a book, doesn’t mean it’s not good.
Trouble with you is the trouble with me,
Got two good eyes but you still don’t see.
Come round the bend, you know its the end,
The fireman screams and the engine just gleams…
London’s Tower Bridge, pop classic. Katrina y The Waves. The visual background for most of the video, something there. What was I thinking about? I titled it “Flashback Cafe,” but other than images from around the industrial area – places that are now high rent – even to the point of the City of London has a new structure there? All of that, back then, thirty years ago?
What was I thinking about, it was funny. Or pointed, I don’t know. Saw the video in the mall, waiting on a buddy who was looking at running shoes. How that ties to “80’s hair,” and Red Chuck Taylor’s?
This is NOT a photo-op.
