Albany Bulb

    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.

Jill, reading your memories of your mother stirred me this Sunday morning. Perhaps it is common for women to have these strong remembrance of details like their mothers hands (my mother's had large knuckles and strong nails) or the unique rhythm of her feet as she walked along in her high heels. I think we daughters are so tied to our mothers all our lives, and those complicated women leave complicated wounds.

My own mother died in 1982, when she was 59, after 3 years of cancer and multiple surgeries and their complications ravaging her body. A woman who had once been the strongest most independent role model I could have imagined while growing up, had become small, frail and dependent on others, though she remained feisty to the end.

Thank you very much for sharing this.


no matter how many times i hear or read your stories of charmian i'm still riveted, jill. happy birthday to moms long gone and still here.

love, susie
