He stepped into the glaring sunlight from the rank darkness of a forgotten alleyway. Alex scrubbed the sweat and grime off his face, slicked back his hair and shoved a Yankees baseball hat low on his forehead. He strode casually along the avenue till he reached Curious Goods, Inc.
Inside he found his grandfather reading a magazine. “It’s done.” Alex stated bluntly, “The problem is neutralized and the balance restored”
“Why the smile?” Alex inquired.
“You are the #1 eligible hottie in all of Haven Falls according to Urbane Magazine. ”
Alex sighed, stalked to his office muttering ‘Karma hates me’.
I find these ‘Top Hottie’ lists very objectifying for both men and women. I can make up my own mind on who is hot or not, thank you very much! So it seems there is a bit of otherworldliness about Alex. This past weekend I took in a fabulous show at Longwood Gardens called Nightscape. The photo attached to the post was taken at the exhibit. The lush gardens become the canvas for a very skilful light and music show. It seems practically out of this world and well worth the visit if you live near this garden. Of course there was a smidgen of inspiration for this installment in the Alex/Lucy series to be found at this event.
I will be creating a future post about the exhibit which will include the photos and video taken during my visit. It still takes my breath away when I view the photos.
