The Moon


I normally post once a day. Usually in the morning unless I get very busy or I’m traveling. But. Today is special. So, I’ll post twice. Today is a little sad. But, it’s also a little time for reflection. Where were you in 1969? What were you doing when you heard this?  ““That’s one smallContinue reading “The Moon”

Summer Flowers


In the southwest flowers are delicate and very fine.  They grow in dry, desert conditions.  If you have a wet summer season you see a lot of small, but brightly colored flowers. Before I write further, I should define wet. Desert wet is nothing like wet anywhere else. The so-called rainy season might only yieldContinue reading “Summer Flowers”

That’s not because I’ve lost the will or am not hungry. It’s because they keep feeding me. Breakfast. Lunch. Dinner.Continue reading “Drifting”

Tres Piedras


More from my summer roads series. There is one problem with this picture. I’d forgotten that it’s been around a bit. When I Googled Tres Piedras his picture comes up as number one on Google images and number 9 in general Google search results. That’s okay. It’s part of my editing project so those ofContinue reading “Tres Piedras”

The Loneliest Road In America


They say that US Route 50 is the loneliest road in America. It’s true. I’ve never driven all of it, but I’ve driven it from California to Utah and it can be pretty bleak. One of these days I might drive the whole thing. I guess that’s another thing for my bucket list which hasContinue reading “The Loneliest Road In America”
