The hair extensions have been across the street from my house for weeks.
Interestingly, they’ve never blown away or been washed away by rain. By now, I’m having a little experiment to see how long they can withstand the elements.
I’m also wondering how they got there. Did a couple of Moms from Snowden School get into a fight one afternoon, or what?
The view from under the I-40 Mississippi River bridge, an unusual perspective for a Memphian.
You can really get a sense of the size of the bridge from beneath, particularly if you are in a small boat on the water.

This is part of a painting done on 1/1/2000 by my friend and artist Dan Molinda.
Dan’s work of this period largely consisted of swirling colors, merging into haunting faces.

Rhodes is open. I’m at work.
Today’s snow stuck to the bare trees.
I pass this artwork almost every day, walking across campus.
This 1970s-era piece shows people in motion and is located at a nexus of pathways at Rhodes, directly in front of the Rat (cafeteria).
I recently rediscovered a bottle of Fernet-Branca that had been squirreled away years ago, after having been purchased in Prague and brought over by request, possibly by my brother.
According to Wikipedia, FernetÂ “is a type of Amarillo, a bitter, aromatic spirit.” I agree. You can find it in some places in the US, especially in NYC and San Fran.

Just pretty. Just because.
The cold temperatures are keeping the ice intact around Memphis.
I can tell the days are getting longer, as there are occasionally trailing whisps of light in the sky when I get off work.
