This was the Gihon River, in Johnson, Vermont, at about 7:30 pm on April 15th, 2014.
This is what I woke up to today (April 16th!). “I know it’s been a long, hard winter, but I can see the light at the end of the tunnel.” SAID NO ONE EVER IN VERMONT.
I’ve been a fan of Diane Arbus and her work for a long time. This article in the New York Times sheds a bit more information on the particular family relationship in this image.
I live for Stephen King’s sassy recap tweets. [x]
I eyerolled so hard when I saw this set of tweets. Not only does Game of Thrones broadcast in the UK a day after the US, but the whole “the books have been out for x amount of time” thing whenever something is adapted just makes you sound like a dick. You aren’t better than someone who hasn’t read the books. Also, it tells you in the opening sequence of Romeo and Juliet that they’re going to die, so terrible example there.

My friend, Diana Whitney, just posted this on her blog. It captures beautifully her time at the Vermont Studio Center.
Ana Teresa Fernández, Borrando la Frontera, performance, 2011.
The surreal act of erasing a border is documented in the short, Borrando la Frontera. A woman in stilettos and a black cocktail dress scales a 30 ft ladder on the sandy beach of Tijuana, bringing the sky back between Mexico and the US, as she paints the dividing fence blue. The film depicts the peace offering of creating the illusion of a “hole in the wall.” The protagonist becomes more visible as the wall starts to disappear into the blue sky. Her attire, the little black dress reflects the notion of prosperity in the US, moreover the funerary symbol of luto, the Mexican tradition of wearing black for a year after a death. Mourning those who have died in attempts of crossing this border to prosper.
