surface

June 6, 2007

There is an outdoor goods brand called North Face. South of the border, they are known as Sur Face.

The ur-face of humanity is probably not like mine; it is probably that of a young Chinese woman.

Whose face was it? Surface. No, sizface.

Ace furs. What was the first death in the Bible? Some animal either died of natural causes or at the hand of God to provide furs for the fallen Adam and Eve. Genesis 3:21–“And the Lord God made garments of skins for the man and for his wife, and clothed them.”

The adjective of the noun “surface” is “superficial.” American GIs are dopegficial.

    um that first picture is peru, no?

    And it isn’t anymore. He slid off the mountain a couple of years ago, sadly. At least he is memorialized on their state quarter.

    Yeah, it’s kind of incomprehensible when things happen in human history that should happen only in geological eons beyond memory. I guess I should’ve said “was” in New Hampshire.

  4. Little Mary Says:

    oh, yes. i remember. but there is an almost identical thing in peru–outside of cusco. it is a beautiful site there.

    Nice visual and verbal discursion. I saw the NH face a couple of years before it “fell off”.

    Welcome, penstemon! I never saw the Old Man except in photos like this one. But since I was a child, and I assume I share this with most people, I have seen faces in tree bark, rocks, curtain patterns, old water stains, you name it.
