Outside, I walk towards the edge of the parking lot. All around me are cats and dogs, even some chickens. The asphalt is seething with the strays of paradise.

It's not a matter of beauty for them. They collect around their needs; they hover around the promise of food.

 

“The new journalism, Ravva-style, stimulates the nerve endings with its alternately lush and spare renditions of some spectacular settings, William Kentridge or Gauguin or Florine Stettheimer should be in charge of the art direction when the movie, or opera, appears, but in the meantime sit back and enjoy the calm cool stylings of one of America’s finest young writers.”
