From Gerald R. Lucas


So I was in a bit of a mood today. I’m not sure how these things happen. Maybe there is no logic to it? It’s like a garbage truck lost a smelly, used diaper right on my head. I’ve been carrying it around since. I had a student come and take the reading quiz today in my World Literature class, then left right after. I was offended. Perhaps if she had said something to me—like my boyfriend’s having ingrown toenail surgery—I would have been OK. Probably not.

So, here’s a photo of Autumn at Cade’s Cove having fun, exactly four years ago. This was probably taken on Henry’s first visit to the mountains.

I’m pretty sure this was taken with the Jupiter 3 wide-open on the α7R.
