21 months later and we ain't outa the woods yet.
AUTHOR’S NOTE: When I took this shot of La Crosse's Rivoli Theater marquee on March 22, 2020, I had no idea just how much life as we knew it would change. Perhaps forever. So it seems appropriate to extend what I had originally intended to be a 12-month multimedia web exercise for at least a few more months. You can see more photos in my Shots from the Road collection. Or, go here to read more chapters of the Weird Scenes Inside the Security Line series. -Starling
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Born in a small Wisconsin blue-collar town, Mike Starling ditched the assembly line for a long, sometimes circuitous career working with words, sound and images. His original music is heard on numerous recordings and soundtracks, and his stories and photos have been featured in books, films, mags and other media. Among his other interesting career moves, he has edited a beer magazine, played bass in a reggae band and sold potato chips door-to-door. Inspired by the life-altering events of 2020, he launched a new web-based project called I Remember Travel on 1/1/21.
