Though I’ve managed this far in life without one, I now have a TV. It started with the wonderful cartoon by Michael Leuing, a comment on the absurdity of mediated experience, and evolved through an extended wine fueled creative conversation with my room-mate Michelle, into a garden installation. Stephanie joined our little conspiricy, provided the TV and assisted Michelle with the painting. I cut out a space to plant a zucchini in the back, affixed a vinyl sticker of the cartoon I’d had made, secured it to a cedar post, and planted it in the vegetable garden. We can now watch TV while watering, weeding, barbequeing, drinking beers on the deck, or swinging in the hammock. Most excellent.
