the most peaceful place i have found in my area to watch the sunset.. sounds of insects (but no mosquitos), gentle movement of the water coming up to the shore, and a wide-open view of the southwestern sky.. i want to come here more often !

(yesterday there was no sunset in my city it was totally overcast and kinda rainy ! the day before that, it was a decent sunset but my photos were kinda generic and my phone got messed up so i couldnt post it ! more to come !! # every sunset)

resource for learning cloud types

last nights sunset was the best so far since i’ve committed to seeing them all.. so much happening in the sky .. started with an intense golden glow touchng everything outside, progressed to pink and orange as expected, but the quantity and complexity of the cloud arrangements in the sky provided soo much to look at, and it kept evolving for 20-30 minutes at least, thru these intense forms..

lol throwback video to 2011 when stephen tully dierks interviewd me in my chicago apartment.. this is a really funny clip to me. love to alt lit gossip for reposting it

The prison … functions ideologically as an abstract site into which undesirables are deposited, relieving us of the responsibility of thinking about the real issues afflicting those communities from which prisoners are drawn in such disproportionate numbers … It relieves us of the responsibility of seriously engaging with the problems of our society, especially those produced by racism and, increasingly, global capitalism.

pictured = sunset from yesterday (day 18) ! cool way of having the pink lit-up sky behind the blue clouds, rather than pink clouds on top of the blue sky.. interesting move..
but tonight (day 19) there was nooo visible sunset from what i could tell, it was overcast all the way. that was interesting because i realized like, it just legit gets dark earlier when its overcast… on a clear or partly cloudly day the lingering sunset has such an effect of keeping the sky (and therefore everything else) at least partially lit for quite a whiiile after the sun is gone. tonight in the overcast, however, it was getting DARK by the usual prime sunset time..
