In Season + Out of Season

January 19, 2010

Several years ago as I drove past a small public park on a snowy day, my eye caught a warmly bundled figure sitting at a picnic table under the trees, having lunch–a curious sight in a provincial little town.

Surprise turned to delight when I recognized an old friend, a fellow artist-musician and certifiable eccentric.  I pulled over, got out of the car and joined the chinese take-out party.  An abundant lunch was shared amidst much laughter, talking and wielding of chopsticks over steaming white cartons while the snowflakes slowly came down all around us.

I hope forthcoming journal entries will reflect that event: random, unusual, humorous, sustaining, delightful–even if odd to some.

    I’ve always loved the word ‘wielding,’ and its especially delightful when applied to the mental image of steaming cartons of chinese food and snow. Crouching chicken, hidden egg foo young. =) Really looking forward to reading more!
