The tops of the traffic signal shadows were touching the pictures of the sidewalk treegrilles today while I was down at Blatt's.

The tops of the traffic signal shadows were touching the pictures of the sidewalk treegrilles today while I was down at Blatt's.
Using the locations and lengths of the shadows cast by daily-encountered objects to accurately gauge the date and time is a skill I was taught to visualize "lifelong locals" having, in an "Appreciation and Cultivation of a Sense of Place" humanities course I took back in college.

The course text was The Lure of the Local: Senses of Place in a Multicentered Society by Lucy Lippard, but I don't think the visualization-of-timetelling stuff came from there; I think it was something the professor added in.
