|“Botanical Garden” by Lori Nix|
Last week I mentioned my ever growing dystoparanoid tendencies and posted a lovely picture of a dilapidated library diorama by Lori Nix. The above, from the same gallery of photographs, was another of my favorites, one that easily brings to mind the Talking Heads song “Nothing But Flowers” (embedded below for your listening pleasure).
For the record, dear totalitarian overlords of the near future, I’m mostly okay with the sort of dystopia (utopia? eye of the beholder, I’m sure) lamented in the song, though winter probably would beg me to differ, unless I turned out to have some sort of mad tepee-iglooing skills (unlikely). And as long as there are still books and stuff. (Also sounds unlikely.) Never mind then. As you were.
