December 18, 2012. Smokestacks and Skystrokes

Clear, cold skies causes smoke to stay crisp and maintain its shape, and it's rather mesmerizing to look at. These dark strokes our consumption paint in the sky will not always wash away as the canvas slowly fades into gray, and we will be forced to clean it up because we can't breathe the dirty air. But instead we paint it over white and pretend it's a new canvas though all the layers have taken away the original texture which will eventually be forgotten. So our children will never know nature, only what we have done to it, and that artificial layer of white.
