Friday Five: Oct. 10

1. Mud mural from Yusuke Asai. Yes mud really:

2. Deep Fried Tequila Shots TRUE THING:

3. This Shadow Box… or rather a box that cast shadows from ANILA QUAYYUM AGHA:


4. A dangerous sounding Horchata cocktail:


5. The winding of the  year for a good New Hampshire boy will lead to Robert Frost and as Austin nights get below 85° it’s begun to feel a little like an autumn, so indulge me:

For Once, Then, Something


Others taunt me with having knelt at well-curbs
Always wrong to the light, so never seeing
Deeper down in the well than where the water
Gives me back in a shining surface picture
Me myself in the summer heaven godlike
Looking out of a wreath of fern and cloud puffs.
Once, when trying with chin against a well-curb,
I discerned, as I thought, beyond the picture,
Through the picture, a something white, uncertain,
Something more of the depths—and then I lost it.
Water came to rebuke the too clear water.
One drop fell from a fern, and lo, a ripple
Shook whatever it was lay there at bottom,
Blurred it, blotted it out. What was that whiteness?
Truth? A pebble of quartz? For once, then, something.
