The Stories They Tell
Each Card A Unique Voice
Eight of Spades
Ashland and 4th, Santa Monica, CA, 7.11.22
A walk uphill, not even 8am, and this eight whispered "she wants you to keep playing". A coo and ca, a baby's song.
Three of Spades
Albright & Herbert, Los Angeles, CA, 4.09.15
"Remnants from a bonfire or maybe just a s'mores roast, or maybe, just a roast. The tenants here are known to be funny. A story jam and a spade found this afternoon."
Seven of Spades
Mount Princeton, Buena Vista, CO, 9.20.14
"Her best friend's wedding, a magician, maybe named Jack, and what could only be interpreted as a blessing from her father."
Witness to "I do"
Two of Spades
"Science supports strolling," she would remind the team, "step away from the screen." Step down the sidewalk, do a duet with a dearly departed
Walk the Dog
Eight of Hearts
Electric & Marco, Venice, 08.03.17
"An eight piece of hearts packed and placed on the corner of Marco & Electric. My delight at finding it -- a happy, minion meal -- a Golden Arch dealing gone to the gutter."
Two of Diamonds
Rose & 5th, Venice, CA, 7.10.17
"Folded and flipped, this two was left a captive to the curb, bent to the whim of the dealer who penned and circled "20" on her middle."
Ace of Hearts
Main Street & Mills, Santa Monica, CA, 3.03.19
"Heartily found, hidden behind worn wood and wet from weeks of rain. She was hiding, much like the heart that beats within the jaded, like the diamond that shines in the rough, like the club with a secret entrance around back.."
