Sometimes I run into things I don’t remember at all such as this photograph. Oh, I remember doing these two drawings. I liked the old tower, but there wasn’t any room for lifeguards in this old shack. I didn’t like the new cement block tower. It was cold and echoed, but it had plenty of room for lifeguards and their things at the time it was built. I bet there’s no room now.
But where was I? Was this at the newspaper office? Were these copies or originals. Copies probably as they are 8 1/2 x 11. I was drinking heavily…look how thin I was. I was happy about this moment, but I’m still left wondering where I was.
Don’t you have moments like these?
In the photo below, I know exactly where I was, what happened, and where each piece of art is today that was in this photograph. Even the Chair. I’m left wondering why I blanked out the history of that moment with the lifeguard towers.
