“You cannot put a Fire out”

Fire wove its way throughout a recent weekend.

Friday night

A horrible multi-family house fire in our small community. Multiple fire departments. Blocked streets. Low water pressure at the hydrants. Prayers for the occupants and first responders.

Saturday

Opening day of artist Richard Friedberg’s “Terrible Beauty” exhibit at our downtown art museum. Fire as sculpture. Mesmerizing. Stunning in subject, scale, and execution.

Sunday

The Season 2 finale of “Dickinson.” Amherst’s beloved church goes up in flames, while two hearts find their way back to each other. Spark. Smolder. Flare. Blaze.

The episode’s poem copied into my Hobonichi with a pen that looks like lava and an ink called Fireopal.

So. Much. Heat.

  1. Those are amazing sculptures. I’ve never seen anything like them. And fantastic job weaving together the serendipitous events that insinuated themselves into your life.

    • The sculptures are AMAZING! This felt like a strange post to write but I couldn’t get all of the fire images out of my head and needed to capture that theme somehow. Thanks for reading and commenting!
