Fog City


I wanted to add this wonderful poem by the inspirational, William Butler Yeats. Probably one of the greatest love poets of any era. Please do listen and think of me or a special loved one because this human connection couldn't be finer!
I'd like this to be live, but I'm confused about how to do it. Colin Farrell recites this poem wonderfully, so I hope you get it.

Fog City

I finally had a chance last week to take the bus downtown, specifically skid row. There is a vacant hotel standing idly on the corner of 6th and Howard. It has been designated for demolition for new development. The interesting thing is for the past 16 years it has been a work of art. A virtual sculpture. There are, miraculously, chairs, TV's, refrigerators, beds, sofas, lamps, any and all types of furniture protruding from the windows on each floor. I've driven by hundreds of times, always marveling. Here are a few photos depicting this unique and doomed work of art.
