David Rhoden: News

May 24, 2018


I was trying to type the word "kind" but I typed "lind" and my heart sank, I had an instant feeling of sadness and regret. But I know why: I used to walk part of the way home from work on dark, cold New York evenings, and I would walk from my job on 40th and 3rd to the 14th Street L stop. It was a long time to think, and not much to cheer you. There was a depressing-looking restaurant in or near a housing project and the sign read "Cielito Lindo". And I never went in, but every time I passed it I imagined it might be a nice place that the neighborhood people really relied on, even though it looked depressing and half-closed from the outside. (So, "lind" reminded me of "Lindo.")

I'll try not to make any more typos tonight.

Negatory Good Buddy

Have trouble saying no? You won't anymore if you take possession of this companion who can only say no.

update from nature

I looked out the door and there was a blue jay (I think) carrying about two feet of that plastic strapping tape in its beak, bouncing from branch to branch in a backyard tree.

painting I haven't shown here

I sold this when I left New York but I don't think I ever posted it here. I like this one a lot.

It's called "Cloud Creatures."
