On the water's surface
Today in Hunterdon County
The day is young

*

Traffic light goes red
Green. Red. Green. Red.
The warm belly of the bus

*

Chasing laughter
The sun strikes
Feeling good in New Jersey

*

Leaves on the windshield
Thoughts of home

*

Mountain Avenue
Quite chilly
High up in the trees

*

Water like glass
A vacant lot
Far away

Diorama of Tokyo's back alleyways, sized for a bookshelf. Sculpted by monde." alt="We peer into a narrow alleyway, flanked on both sides by buildings -- windows, potted plants, and balconies. It is no real alleyway, but a diorama that's designed to fit on a bookshelf next to other books.

Crafted by @monde.
"The Tokyo-based artist built and designed intricate, wooden bookshelf inserts that are like miniature dioramas of narrow alleyways you might find in the streets of Tokyo."

...bricks chip and erode, paint fades and flakes from the surface. Inhuman forces — the sun, the rain, the wind — operate in alliance with human action over time, eroding and texturising space. Thus memory writes itself indelibly on the literal surfaces of the city.
