Sunny today. 100% chance of happiness. (2019)
Today, this child is coloring with chalk on their little section of sidewalk canvas. A neighbor walking down the way notices the artist at work and pauses to discretely observe the doodle forming. If one has retained the imagination of earlier years, one might interpret the chalky depiction as generic form of some familiar animal. A dog perhaps. The child now notices the man and the lull of quiet reflection passes. Our observer smiles, bends to pat the vague creature on its concrete head and continues on toward their home.
Such are the moments that compose life. (2021)
