“Tides and Chance”

St Marys River Cordgrass

Northeastern Wind Over the St Marys River

Jay Griffiths remembers time “by the sea” at her grandparents’ place as a child:

“We learned about tides and chance, storms and sun, the vicissitudes of what is lost and found, flotsam and jetsam, castaway luck, islands, sea-songs, rings, riddles and pledges. We learned the sense of a clear slate in the renewal of the tide-smoothed sand.”

Tillandsia

An algorithmic walk (and respite from I75 traffic) leads to a man in a tie-dyed shirt selling air plants alongside a young bearded glassblower at the Chattanooga River Market. It’s curious how much the misplaced tropical plants above resemble the tendrils of captive animals living a few hundred yards away inside Tennessee Aquarium tanks.

Hello Falco

Falco peregrinus

The fastest animal on earth perched beside a warm stucco wall soaked with a day’s sunlight grooms himself seven floors above A1A. Barred feathers float slowly.
