GHOST OF THE VISUAL IMAGE

OUR MINDS HOLD MEMORIES IN VERY COMPLEX WAYS

A COLOR

A SUBTLE VARIATION OF A SHADE OR TINT

SHADOWS AND THE GLINT OF THE SUN

SOUNDS AND THE SOFT TREAD OF SHOES ON WOODEN FLOORS

THE FEELING OF OUR BODIES IN SPACE AS WE RELATE

TO THE NARROWNESS OF A HALLWAY THAT MAGNIFIES EVERY SOUND

SMELLS LIKE OLD LEATHER, BOOKS, AND SWEATY GYMN CLOTHES

EVEN THE SLIGHTEST CHANGE IN HUMIDITY CAN TRIGGER A MEMORY

This could be Anytown High School USA.  It happens to be on an Island in the middle of the French Broad River in North Carolina in a little town I have grown to love, Marshall.  This is no longer a high school, it flooded too often so a new high school was built and this wonderful old building sold.  But the good news is the building was sold and bought by an artist who turned it into art studio's for working career artists.
