evolving solarium.. with slides!08/24/09
after too many hours in front of the screen, edwina and i threw our computers out of the metaphorical window to wander the sunday market. where we had posoles and mole enchiladas, stocked up on groceries (zucchini flowers, prickly pear, nopales, oaxaca cheese, hibiscus flowers and chamomile flowers for tea, 1 liter each of fresh-squeezed carrot juice, tangerine juice, and grapefruit juice — but i digress), and then wandered into the area where antiques and knick-knack- being-sold-as-antiques-and-may-very-well-be-antiques-one-day are sold. where we came upon fifteen boxes of someone else’s personal slides of people’s weddings, trips to acapulco, graduation days, birthdays, just becauses, and bargained for them all for 150 pesos. i can’t stop looking through these slides. a good day for us — perhaps an even better one for solarium.
