Sail On

Building facade, South Beach, Miami

With yet another end-of-days meme on its way—Hurricane Irene, which I have dubbed Irenegnarok—I thought I’d provide a little calm and stability as a counter-balance to the general elevation of anxiety.

This is another image from the archive, a nautically-themed exterior of an apartment building in South Beach, Miami. I love the monochrome serenity of abstract geometry in this picture. After all, when faced with the much-ballyhooed Watery Wall of Death-Dealing Doom, it’s good to picture oneself sailing steadily through the peril in a seaworthy vessel.

To all my East Coast peops: take sensible precautions, stock up on batteries and drinking water, and enjoy whatever enforced period of relatively inactivity may ensue. Stay safe and sail on!
