Summer, Night

I was stunned by the shadow cast by a tree onto the sidewalk tonight. A few blocks away I was thinking about the shadows and about movies, and how the movies I enjoy most assume not that this is a world of objects, but that this is a world of light. Those directors and cinematographers and set designers and lighting people seem to understand that light pays objects courtesy by making it possible for them to manifest themselves to us. So I turned around and visited that tree again.
