those of you who suffered through my posts from this time last year, know that i get a little surly when the darkness sets in. the lack of sunlight comes close to doing my head in.
today i stood outside my job at about 2:30, as the sun was going down, straining to steal the last faint rays of yellow life on my face. the sun doesn't emit any warmth. it's all in my head. when i went back inside KUAC was repeating a weather warning:
"severe weather warning on the Dalton Highway. mile 90 to 130, 50 mile/hr winds and zero visibility."
ugh. i know that the time spent in the car up there would be miserable and dangerous, but the light once it did break the next day had the potential to be something special. another time.
i walked home at 4:00 in total darkness. made a cup of tea. walked the dog. checked some blogs. Kevin Sisemore posted an interview by Richard Misrach at the Art Institute that interested me. as i sat here, sinking in a self imposed Monday stooper Misrach spoke:
"for this period, for 2 years i didn't make a single photograph during the day time."

or, you know, it's really cold out too.. maybe i'll just sit here and get lost in his On the Beach series...
