A Chair in the Sky

I keep seeing chairs which people have left in odd corners, presumably to enjoy the autumn sunshine. This puts me in mind of Joni Mitchell's adaptation of the Charlie Mingus tune "A Chair in the Sky" on her 1979 Mingus album, which I bought last year in an attempt to catch up with those lost years between Hejira and Night Flight Home. Maybe I'll listen to it this afternoon.

Or maybe I won't. We've got to pack up the son's things ready to drive him to "uni" (as I must learn, reluctantly, to call it) tomorrow and won't need any encouragement to lachrymose retrospection. Later for that.

The top image reminds me of Saul Leiter. This is meant as a compliment of the highest order.

And taken as such -- thanks, Andrew.
