Picture of the Day
yesterday | today tomorrow

December 14, 2002

earlier in the day, it really rained, and as luck would have it i had to be outside at that moment, gutters overflowing with a rushing like a river. wanna see my typewriter? what does that have to do with anything? well, i took a picture of it today, and that's pretty much the whole ballgame--seeing what's there as opposed to manifesting a preconception.

these are the peaches i put in the wine. 3 lbs of peaches, about 6 liters of carlo rossi rhine. simmer at superlow heat until soft and sweet, which in this case meant about 8 hrs cz the little fuzzies are not in season (on this wedge of planet, at least). did you know that fahrenheit is the temperature scale for alcohol? it freezes at 0 and boils at 100, so stick a finger in and if it feels hotter than your body, lower the temperature. i applied this technique to the making of absinthe, where i warmed the vodka before mixing in wormwood (a.k.a. mugwort) and letting it steep 72 hours in oven and sauna. it worked unbelievably well and put a serene glow on our bonewarmng party.
