Ripple

Yes She Does © Catherine Rutgers 2019

On Saturday, June 7, 2014, sometime in the vicinity of 3 o’clock in the afternoon, I finished scouring my stove. I had used a toothbrush, a knife, a sponge, paper towels, powdered cleanser, and vigorous elbow grease. It was as clean as clean could be. Astonishingly clean. Very ready for a portrait of domestic bliss.

That August, I published the soundless video Space Rangers. You can watch it here: https://vimeo.com/104451876. Eight minutes, forty-three seconds of very much strangeness. It’s one of the oddest things I’ve ever seen.

Four years later, the “ripple” post got started. And now it’s done.
