Picture of the Day
August 11, 2021

Everything moves so fast! Yesterday we flew through decades and generations encapsulated in a torrent of documents, time like floodwaters rising, the last few stepping stones poking above the surface form an irregular path into the past. Today the route was far more linear and speedy in its own right, 80 mph across the broad flat spaces between Minnesota and Montana. It started in Minneapolis, where I hoped for forecasted thunderheads and lightning but settled for the subtler shifting light and play of shadow across the facades of these temporary structures, "skyscrapers feigning permanence."
