Sitting in the sweltering 108 degree heat smelling the ripening fruit on the delta breeze removes the weight and stress of life’s stark realities as you pass the time with your friends, family. I was watching two friends doing the ritual grooming much like a pack of gorillas in a Discovery channel documentary when I realized how his hand looked as he messaged the shoulders of his girlfriend. How I would imagine an artist sketching it. I took this picture so you could see where I was looking and see what I see.
