Rain interrupts us.
Slows us down and causes pause.
Plays with perception.


Tire store ambience

The stains run down the front of the garbage can, suggesting a stench. Next to the can sits an untouchable carafe, while on the television, a bear dismembers a salmon.

The "free" wifi doesn't work, and the extension cord is covered in paint.

But the tires smell wonderful. And the marketing images evoke a sense of confidence.

At an auto-body shop we wouldn't have it any other way.

"that's great, it starts with 
an earthquake, birds snakes, airplane
Bruce is not afraid"

"eye of hurricane, 
listen yourself as you churn
world serves its own needs"

"you serve your own needs"

"wire in a fire 
represents a seven gauge 
In government rage"

"end of world as known
it is the end of the world
as we know it is"

R.E.M. said it 
first but being good Christian
heard D.C. Talk's cover

put away old things
then rediscover and take
back what was before

chase truth like water.
