I grew up in Huntington, West Virginia in the United States. I don't try to go back there very often. But once, when I did: I was in my car, parked, and it was raining. I was under a giant neon sign, a grocery store that hadn't had all it's letters since I was a kid. The battery in my camera was still good, so I pointed it out the windshield and began taping. It lasted long enough to watch the sky turning dark, and the sign turning to gibberish as its un:lit letters faded away, and a most unusual song playing on the radio. The whole thing felt like a funeral.
