from Wild Kingdom
Man, I love the way Kevin draws these suburban skylines. He sent me a great little zine a while back. (You can get his zines here.) His new one, Gloriana, is on my Christmas list.

Trees from 18th-century Russian Maps
(from page 174 of John Krygier and Dennis Wood’s second edition of Making Maps)

I sometimes find myself just admiring the pockets of space between the different branches in a tree and walking and immersing myself in those pockets of space. It is just beautiful. It is a beautiful sensation.

» "The Trees" by Philip Larkin
The trees are coming into leaf
Like something almost being said;
The recent buds relax and spread,
Their greenness is a kind of grief.
Is it that they are born again
And we grow old? No, they die too.
Their yearly trick of looking new
Is written down in rings of grain.
Yet still the unresting castles thresh
In fullgrown thickness every May.
Last year is dead, they seem to say,
Begin afresh, afresh, afresh.
Listen to Larkin read it.
