Wherein I (sometimes) post one or more photos I’ve taken, and write about ‘em. Each and every (occasional) Friday. * * *
He played a large part in my childhood.
He be the Ringmaster of the Fisher-Price Circus Train for godsakes!
Memory fascinates me. The sheer power of it, the specificity of it, and the myriad ways in which it can be triggered.
Sometimes it can be overwhelming.
And sometimes I don’t like the feelings it evokes.
What power the Ringmaster wields!
And I like the idea of taking these potent little triggers from my past, and re-styling them somehow. So, instead of just relinquishing myself to the vortex of emotion they inspire, and then just idly tossing them aside, I’d rather grab them, and stick them in a different context, or in a different place, and take their picture.
Yank them into the present with me.
Maybe I’ll Pixel-Fix-Friday them.
And put the Ringmaster back to work.
