Road Trip: Day 47

Posted: September 10, 2016 by timjollymore in Uncategorized

Dateline: Buffalo, Minnesota – Books, birds, and buffalo.

This morning I’m crossing the middle of Minnesota where I’ll encounter pre-harvest soy beans lying in fields made light golden by their drying leaves. Across the road will be a deeper gold of the corn tassels. By this time next month, the fields will be bare.

Yesterday the black birds reminded me of Annie Dillard and Alfred Hitchcock. Then, as you can see below, likely the very same birds covered County Road 18, flying up as I approached. This time they reminded me of “Crows” from Ari Kirosawa’s DREAMS (a film interview with the artist), and of Vincent Van Gogh’s “Crows” which was the subject of Kirosawa’s film segment.

The country side around Lake Minnewaska is rife with connections to art. What can I say?
