A Secret Whale
As Jeff and I left the highway from our jaunt to Kim Ann's Sandy Valley Film Shorts Night, a flash of blue caught my eye -- I was almost certain that I had spotted a whale. Do you remember the moment in A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius? The moment where they spot the whale?
After we tried driving behind factories and climbing over fences and skirting barbed wire, we stumbled upon a path that took us right there.
Once we were close, we ran like kids with wild abandon.
How lucky could we be? To find a remote, mysterious, secret, abandoned whale. (here I stand triumphantly astride the beast)
Part of me is dying for one of you, dear readers, to explain why and what this whale is doing in the heart of decrepit Canton, Ohio.
The other part of me wants to drive downtown and find out that the whale has disappeared and the whole thing was a kind of Narnian, Door In The Wall experience.
