These cows were observed from the window of a train as I traveled from Berlin to Sachsen-Anhalt back in July. They appear surreal. The streets of my `hood have a similar quality today; the heat rises from the street in shimmering waves; the air is chokingly thick and the sky shifts color. Now it looks like storms are approaching. This is the hottest weather we have had here since the summer began. I lose my desire to go out, but at the same time I feel stir-crazy staying in. Dilemma. But I am getting work done. Lots.
