"Neighborhood Watch" (3-21-10 10006v3) was posted here some time ago. I'm re-posting it today in support of our neighboring Isla Vista/UCSB community after the mass shooting there the evening before last. Oddly, the old folder it's from is the one I've been saying for some time that I've been stuck in. It's full of Isla Vista pix I took. This particular corner is right where some of the shooting and car chasing went on. May this version I made of this pic quite some time ago be seen to radiate with a reminder that the vital creative life of the Isla Vista community cannot be taken away from them. No matter how assaulted and challenged. (By the way, it was titled "Neighborhood Watch" back when I first posted it.) And I cannot end this post without putting out my deep hope that we will learn someday how to help those so painfully wounded, before they are compelled to act out in such destructive ways toward both themselves and others.
