what is the most beautiful moving poignant etc. etc. thing you have seen or experienced?
i’ve put off answering this questions because i thought i could think of something clever if i gave myself some time but it didn’t really work.
i suppose a “poignant” moment in recent memory is from when i was in hawaii last june..i remember standing barefoot in wet grass the night of the lunar eclipse, big frogs croaking and crawling around the ground, dense jungle on almost all sides…i stood there for a bit just looking up at the moon and stars, breathing the humid air..i felt very..primordial at that moment.
My sister and me at a Mexican restaurant, drinking diet sodas. Strong white male Pasadena police officer tries to impress us by trying to get the transient who has just locked himself in the bathroom, out of the bathroom. He cracks jokes to us as he puts on a rubber glove raising his pointer finger in the air. As we leave, walking down the sidewalk he has finished the job drives past us and revs his engine. Wtf RIGHT?!
