The Bermuda Triangle of Shoes

ruby
Remember the red shoes that were sitting out in front of my building?

Well, this time, in the same spot was a pair of blue sneakers. It’s a very tiny mystery, but still. What is with this spot and shoes?

This year the Fourth of July fireworks are on the west side!! I’m going to try watching them by the river, but depending on how many hundreds of thousands of people are there (and the heat) I may retreat to my roof. But I’m excited about what pictures I might get–of the people and the whole scene, not the fireworks.

We get Fourth of July off at the Census. We didn’t get Memorial Day, but we’re close for Fourth of July. I wonder why that is? We have a bunch of vets at the office so it felt kinda wrong that they had to work that day. Although I think they were glad and happy to have the work, so there’s that.

  1. Performence art. Somebody is upstairs is filming peoples’ reactions to the shoes. In a year or so, you will find yourself in an avante garde film in Soho.
