When I drive home at night the only letters that light up on this sign are “PI”, reminding me of “The Life of Pi”? The Theory of Relativity? The cantankerous nature of neon lights? One of my drive-time pass-times is to note which lights are burned out and how long it takes to fix them. Come November, this one will have been out for almost a year. The sign on the front of the building isn’t much better; it reads “Pia”. Homage to Pia Zadora? I thought the building was abandoned, but when I stopped to shot this photo it was open for business. I didn’t open the door and look inside, so I don’t know for certain they’re still selling pianos!
The rain has abated, but the clouds have not. We got more than 5 inches of rain yesterday and today it’s foggy with signs of more rain to come. Only a day and it seems like an eternity since the sun shone brightly. For now my recollections of blue skies come only from photos.
