Marking History

October's mark. 

The allure of a found mark is powerful.  Why is it here?  

What made it?  What preceded this mark?

In this case, the marks were found in front of the abandoned Greenwich Central Fire House.  

 Even with its building in decline
- a landmark being replaced - 
the sidewalk out front is repaired. 
 The stop-gap macadam creates a new mark
one that continues to validate the historic firehouse, 
even as it is erased from our view.

Thank you for sharing my monthly progress as we count down to August 2014.
