1. The woman in the film drinks in a bar. She’s in hair curlers, a chiffon headscarf tied over them like a tarp over a log pile. The hollows of the curlers, spaces for hope: something good might happen.

    There was no sign of Sandro. I watched the film to keep myself awake while I waited.

    A man bought the woman a beer. She took dainty sips in her hair curlers, in preparation for no specific occasion. Curler time seemed almost religious, a waiting that was more important than what the waiting was for. Curler time was about living the now with a belief that a future, an occasion for set hair, existed.

Our power is out so I’m spending the day sitting in his office to do my knitting and Antiques Roadshow watching.

Screenshot of a photo booth window so I can document the view from both sides.



I feel it is important to note that it took all of my willpower to not make a bad ‘view from nowhere’ joke, although now I’m cheating by saying that I wanted to do it. I also always want to make “veil of ignorance” jokes because, well, fuck that shit.
