There Are Enough Signs

There Are Enough Signs

"There are enough signs. Of the lack of tenderness in the world. And yet. And yet. All you have to do is ask. Anyone here can extol the virtues of an onion. Where to get barbecue minced, pulled, or chopped. The hour of the day they have known the thorn of love.”

– C.D. Wright, Deepstep Come Shining

On Sunday, I dragged my family to The Sign Museum in downtown Edmonton. In all honesty, they were both pretty interested to take a look at this unique outdoor museum.

I think about now we’re all looking for signs of tenderness. But today, I’ll settle for signs, tenderly restored, carefully displayed.

I hope you enjoy looking at them as much as I did photographing them!
