Spoke Too Soon


The rain stopped and people emptied out of New York for the long weekend. With a vengeance, the heat and humidity descended, reminding everyone that it was in fact, late May. In a combination of ignorance and arrogance, I wore jeans for the first few 80 degree days. I am always a little late to embrace seasons.

Practicing hand stands on the Great Lawn in Central Park.

Photographing Sean Crowley's things for The Burning House.

Cheddar Cheeseburger and fries. The perfect summer dinner.
I always wonder where planes are heading. This one just left LaGuardia heading west.

I spoke to soon about summer coming last week.

The Roebling Tea Room
Taking the advice of a few well seasoned New Yorkers, I avoided the traffic and stayed in the city for Memorial day weekend. Exactly one year ago, I packed up my things and moved down from Maine. My first year went by in the blink of an eye. I wonder, where will I be next Memorial Day?

Those fries look yummy. I'm back in the U.S. for a week or two and feel inspired to run to McDonald's.

Hey, Foster. Great post, as always! Can't wait to see the pics of Sean Crowley's things on TBH. Also, should it be "Spoke Too Soon"? I don't mean to be the grammar police. It's the english major in me. Cheers.

Hiya Foster,
Great post... I too wonder where planes are going, especially having grown up in Maine where we see a lot of planes at night that are headed to Europe from NYC, Boston, etc. My dad just showed me this site where you can type in the nearest airport to you and see where all planes in the sky around you are headed... http://flightaware.com/

Enjoy!

Near Malick vibe perfuming that tree photo (sans CGI dinosaur). And damned if those fries don't smell like peanut url.
