Couple swinging at Dekalb Air Field
Copyright J Kearns 2006

Wouldn’t exactly call it the dying days of summer yet, but it’s in the air. This couple zipped their car into the parking lot, came running up to the swings, hopped on, swung for a few minutes, then ran back to the car, hopped in and zipped back out. Probably about eighteen. Eighteen-year-olds often have the odd and somewhat awkward physical distinction of looking like they’re about to pop out of their skins.

  1. I love this photo, the energy, spirit, the sky, the airplane, the apparent joy. Also really like the photo of that pond at Fernbank. I’ve sat and looked at that pond before, have thought of returning to draw it because it was so lovely but, like so many things, haven’t gotten around to doing that. I want to reply further to an email you sent me but will have to get to that tomorrow.

  2. Yeah, I liked the couple. They were having a grand exuberant time. Was unable to tell if they were a “couple” or just friends.

    H.o.p. and Marty were out at the UU today for the Bluegrass concert. I imagine you weren’t there or you would have probably noticed them. I didn’t go as I’m not much of a bluegrass fan.

  3. I didn’t go to the Bluegrass concert at the UU church but oddly I was at a blues, bluegrass, and bbq festival yesterday evening. It was in Oakhurst. I don’t usually go to stuff like that, but Steve wanted to go and I thought maybe it would just be good for me to get out and do something. I stood in a long line for a long time waiting to buy bbq. A woman in line in front of me began chatting. She is originally from England, has lived here since 1980, is about to return to England. She was actually good company for that long wait in line. And some of the music was entertaining enough. Funny thing is, I was thinking about you and Marty and H.o.p., for some reason wondering if you might be there!
