Sometimes we forget what the weather’s doing….we used to have a handful of small windows but, with the advent of condominium building on the street where we live, even that marginal source of daylight is banished. All that’s left is what appears to be a once a year event; the surrounding architecture on earth lines up with the sun, and in the back of the shop, Tim’s eyeball sees the light.

(Tim’s eyeball)

theme song: “…a tiny light from a windowpane a hundred yards away, is all he ever gets to know about the regular light of the day…” (Zappa)

Edgar Allen Poe-“the Tell Tale Heart”
