Georges Braque’s poissons. For my soon to be 11-year-old niece, who has the misfortune of celebrating her birthday on the other side of the world, and two days before Xmas, a French picture book called Petit Musee, from which this image comes.
If I’m not mistaken, the dual fish are my “sign.” Although I prefer “Danger Falling Rocks,” and respond that way when the unwary ask me what my "sign" is. Recently, I decided to not buy fish anymore. The ocean is just too depleted, species counts are way, way down, farm-raised is ecologically disastrous, o, it just goes on and on.
I’ll miss smoked bluefish, fillets of stripped bass (king of fish!), and eel most of all.
