Today was a fine day for the first long wander in months. Walked five and a half miles through four neighborhoods. Silvered sun, soft air, and a gentle bewilderment— muscle memory or sense memory awakening in the new light.
On the way home, stopped at the grocery store for a few things and bought a fancy little tree— braided! It’s a Malabar chestnut (Pachira aquatica).
Here are two pages of sketches from last evening:After the jump are a few more sketches and some shots of the very cool mural on Union Street in Gowanus. Saw it last year but had completely forgotten about it!
