Bob titled this “And so it begins.” It strikes me that this photo is so vivid and stark as to make it appear as a painting. You will note St. Joseph Cathedral in the background, right, as a shadow. As if overlooking the whole downtown. And through the years it did indeed overlook the town.
Downtown La Crosse (my hometown) a couple of nights ago. It seems the wind doesn’t discriminate—the damage of today in Cleveland is a match. Or a challenge. But it doesn’t matter, does it? If you’re in the way of some things, in the path that belongs to someone or something else, you’d best be sure that’s where you’re willing to stand. Or fall.
