Textures of the Day


A jeweled rainbow underfoot: Boston rain, beaded atop an oil slick on an otherwise monochromatic dusky gray day.

This was among the textures of my days: an impossibly soft puppy; newspapers rolled into cylinders and splayed into tiny roses; sturdy, rigidly bumped skin enrobing autumn fruits; brittle leaves swept onto finely corrugated concrete; a Pangea of a salt pile starting to separate into rough, uneven sections as the sun came out to dry its outer layers; an endless expanse of puffed cotton clouds….and a goose having what appears to be a very bad feather day.

    I’ve never had a dog, but I recently discovered the “impossibly soft” ears of my daughter’s fiance’s dog Jasmine. I could finger those ears for hours….and she’d let me!

    Love the snow flakes and the goose having a very bad feather day, and the rain drops on the oil slick! Have fun and drive carefully,
