Picture of the Day
  March 28, 2021

Our temporary home in South Philly comes with one unexpected benefit--we share a wall with
the storefront pentecostal (?) church next door. What you hear here is what comes through clear
as a bell in the stairwell down to our front door. It must be nice to have such strenuous faith, to
gather weekly for shared catharsis in a ritual that lasts for hours. Funny, too, because I dreamt
strange religious processions, ripples from last night's conversations about cooperation versus
  competition with a diverse group that included more than a few lapsed Catholics such as myself.
Other than that, it was a lazy day. Bought produce at co-op where our downstairs neighbor works.
Sarah took a bath as I wiped months of photos off my phone, shadows dancing in memory's cave.
