This week was a doozy here in Massachusetts (yep, I think The Onion put it best). Even though I live almost 2 hours from Boston, my town just felt fearful and dark all over.
The picture above is a few of my friends viewing an installation by Charles Stankievech on our trip to the MASS MoCa. It's a video of purple smoke clouds in the arctic titled Loveland. I decided to share an excerpt from it today - instead of the usual weekend song - since I think we could all use a little time in a place like that.
