Sundry Wonders recounts what I saw and thought about during my walks with Ollie over the past week. Photos taken with a Fujifilm X-T4 (very much a beginner) or my Pixel 5 phone (if we walked in the middle of the day, or I was in a bit of a rush). I’d love to hear about and see what you experienced on your walks. Let me know in the comments.

Black-and-white movie

On Saturday, I saw a magnolia tree in bloom. The sky had darkened before the promised rain. The white blossoms looked like they fell through time from a black-and-white movie. Only the faint pink and subtle green from the buds told me that it was now.

This spring feels a bit like a time loop. Has it really been two years since I’ve gone to see live music? I asked myself on Saturday, when I went to a benefit chamber concert. I bought a ticket to another show, a livelier one, but I wonder if I’m still living in a black and white movie.

It’s not over.

And there’s a war that I can do nothing about except attend benefit concerts and send money and worry and feel guilty.

It’s not a black and white movie. Spring has burst out in technicolor and life is returning, and life is ending and this is the world we live in.
