Streaming webcam on the rooftop of
the Surfshop "Good Clean Fun". Swivels back and forth. In the distance:
Busy Tuesday afternoon! Some of the
many passers-by: Joe, who runs the pizza place, busy-bees by several
times. Jim, who saw me the other day with the
balloon. Sally who works at the bank coming back from her lunch
break. A parade of cars: elderly people with dogs in the front seat.
Jason, a local artist, stops to show me his gouache paintings he
pulls out of the back of his truck. The sheriff -twice, each time
a different one. Time and again I explain my message: the symbols
^)^^(^ stand for two faces in profile, two people communicating.
The skater kids: "Awesome!"
The chalk drawing fades quickly due
to the many cars that drive over it. In the night: a light rain
and it's gone.
This one is extremely fun to watch.
I'm a little jealous watching ij in her little t-shirt drawing chalklines
on the pavement, while the dogs and skater kids play beside her.
It's grey and wet outside my studio window, and I haven't seen the
sun in weeks. I get a little nervous when a police car stops by,
but it's all good. This is California after all.
