Post-prandial walk down Dublin street. The road surface is a composition of many materials, oyster shells, Portland cement, river gravel, asphalt, crushed rock, sand, tar. The patches are numerous, their levels and texture vary. The street is one continuous speed bump. It works ok for a biped or vehicles moving slowly. The final result is a street where vehicles seem to be aware of pedestrians and bicycle traffic. I haven’t seen anyone driving and texting simultaneously.

{3:1} To every [thing there is] a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:
{3:2} A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up [that which is] planted;
{3:3} A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;
{3:4} A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
{3:5} A time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing;
{3:6} A time to get, and a time to lose; a time to keep, and a time to cast away; {3:7} A time to rend, and a time to sew; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak;
{3:8} A time to love, and a time to hate; a time of war, and a time of peace.-Ecclesiastes

One of my early jobs was stapling placards for “International Productions” in Richmond. There is wisdom in hiring juveniles to do the illegal work.

Sunday 2100 hrs. Moviegoers approach Vinegar Hill Theater, one last time. A very different experience than the multi-screen, acres of asphalt Movieplex.
