    These photographs are just a few I have taken over the last ten years at The Albany Bulb, also known as the Landfill, the Waterfront and just The Bulb. It is a place I feel passionate about. That much is obvious. There are many of us who believe that this piece of the much hyped Eastshore State Park should have been left untouched and unmanaged - because it is a unique example of what happens when a place naturally and organically self regulates. But the dogma of 'preservation' and 'conservation areas' 'resource protection', 'habitats' and 'liability' overrules all individual identity. They cannot leave anything untouched, un-designed. It is as if if they (the park planners) didn't make it, it has no value. Rules, guidelines, regulations, interpretive signage, fences, safety, sanctioned art - it leaves nothing to the imagination. That is what the landfill meant to us - a place of unlimited imagination.

Deb in Minnesota

Your observation about the second night being worse than the first reminds me of June 2006 when my beloved Maggie cat died.

I learned, once again, that it takes time to mourn and I mourned her all summer. I learned that I didn't care if anyone thought I should have gotten over it sooner.

You are you, and we love you for it.


interestingly enough i had a dream about Oscar last night. Oscar and i were walking down a road. i have no idea where we were going but we were definitely walking with intent, no meandering. i was nervous about where i was going or the destination, i'm not sure, but Oscar came with me for moral support. he spoke in a human voice to me, with a big brother-fatherish voice about my ability to do whatever it was i was going to do. i dont remember much of the words he said to me except that at one point when i was wavering, he did say, "whatever you do, just keep walking, thats the key..."

About lying. Its unacceptable. Humans behaving humanly, although can cause much heartbreak and disillusion, always leaves room for forgiveness and rearrangement. But lying about it is the line in the sand for me. Cheat on me, we'll talk. Lie to me, hit the road. My heart freezes over.

I am sorry you had a hard second night. I hope it gives you some comfort that i spent it with Oscar. I have no idea why he chose me, a stranger, but he kept me company and offered up bravery when mine was wavering.

thinking of you jill (ie)
