Listen to the Silences

New Mexican Roads

Things have gotten, well, drifty. After all the passings of the past few weeks I finally broke. I caught the good old fashioned flu. The kind the punches you in the face before you knew that you had a face. Luckily, it’s just that. The flu, not CoVid.

These days, any working band carries cases of CoVid tests when we travel. So, I know.

Flu is bad enough as you get older. But, for most part it’s still better than CoVid. I think.

This picture.

Somewhere in my fluish fever dreams this picture came to me. It’s about driving all night and seeing the dawn through grit filled eyes. I had to create this picture from almost full cloth because it only existed in my head. I found something close. Close wasn’t it.

I’m not sure this is it.

I’m not sure it isn’t.

That may not be a bad thing. It’s the process. It’s what I do.

    Sorry to learn that you have the flu. With all the traveling you are going it’s a real drag. My flu led to pneumonia and couple of stays in the hospital. I’m recovering. Don’t let your flu progress as mine did.

      Thank you. We are home on the farm. MIL is a retired surgical nurse. She’s here and won’t let me move without written permission.
