I normally only walk across the bridge, Modern Philosophers, to go on disappointing first dates.
Tonight, however, I made an exception for an old friend. I hadn’t seen Bethany aka “my cool boss” (the one who forced us to put up her pathetic purple Charlie Brown Christmas Tree every year) since June when she left (abandoned me) for a “better opportunity” (to abandon me).
Since I was on vacation, I made plans with her to grab dinner and catch up (plead with her to come back). I proposed my favorite failed first date bar since Bethany has always been kind enough to listen to my dating horror stories and offer advice (laugh at me).
It was a beautiful Summer night, so I decided to walk.
And because I’m always thinking of you, Modern Philosophers, I brought along my camera so you could see how gorgeous it was here today…
The clouds really caught my attention tonight. Even though that blazing sun seems to be the focus of this photo, the clouds will be back.
In the screenwriting biz, we refer to that as “foreshadowing”.
Can you believe how blue the Penobscot River is? I guess that’s what happens when the water is trapped under a mile of ice most of the Winter.
There are those clouds again. I told you they’d be back. Why didn’t you believe me?
I believe that particular cloud is how God communicates with that Bangor church.
The sun is much larger in Bangor than it is in Brewer. Maybe that has something to do with Stephen King living there…
More clouds. Isn’t this an awesome shot? I really like this one.
Bethany was late. Surprise! (Was that sarcastic enough?) Luckily, I was able to dive into this giant bin of balls and swim around until she arrived.
The sun is setting, but the clouds remain.
Some old train cars down on the track. I used the x-ray lens on my camera to allow you to see right through them!
The sun was almost gone for my short walk home.
As I was walking home, this branch fell off a passing truck. And that, Modern Philosophers, is how you get rush hour traffic in Bangor, Maine!
I wasn’t able to convince Bethany to come back to work, but I did have a very good time catching up with her.
It was nice to finally leave that bar without being totally confused by the opposite sex.
Hope you enjoyed this walk across the bridge!
