I was re-editing this photo of The Circus Drive-In that was on Route 35 in Wall Township when my friend, the New Jersey writer Thomas Pluck posted this quote from FOC.
Seemed to go not only with the photo, but the times we are living in.
I need to read more Flannery this summer. And Faulkner.
I’ve already read a lot of Thomas Pluck, but you should: Try BAD BOY BOOGIE. Or THE SUMMER OF BLIND JOE DEATH. Look him up.
Please stay safe everyone! Wash Your Hands! Wear A Mask
