I’m hoping that my letters to god will pay off soon and make any last sign of Winter disappear, but until I hit that jackpot I will be satisfied collecting images that make me think Spring is right around the corner (yeah — I know about the calendar thing).
This is the stream which runs behind my house and over to OWASA on Jones Ferry Road. I pass this outlet every time I walk to the J bus stop. There is always a wide variety of items cast into the creek, but this was the first time I saw parts for a bedframe. Some majorly disappointed futon customer was like “Fuck it! I’m drownin’ this mutha today.” I love this about my neighborhood.
On the left is the Japanese Maple that lives out in front of R.B. House Library on UNC-Chapel Hill’s campus. I had to do some work in Wilson Library on my first day back from being sick for over a week and this recovering red soldier was sharing my vibe. It looked as if we had both weathered a difficult winter and were both looking forward to Spring. At least that’s how I felt.
(The other photo is Wilson Library, of course.)
