Rachel Roske

North 7th Street, Brooklyn to Ra's House (3 blocks away)

September 2, 2005


Rachel Roske had proposed a trip up the Newtown Creek into Bushwick, but when I met her in Williamsburg, it seemed a little windy to go that far. Also, I was exhausted from all the rowing I had done that week.


We decided to just paddle out and explore some of the Brooklyn waterfront.


Earlier that day I had seen a friend of mine standing out in front of the trailer where he lives on the East River.


We pulled the boat in at Ra’s place to watch the sun set.


Rachel said that in painting, when you see these rays of light shooting out of the sun like that, they call it “goodlike”.


The whole evening seemed like it came from a painting.
