"...bed of swollen creeks and theories and coils
bed of eyes and leaky pens..."
From "Floating Trees" by C. D. Wright
Heading out to visit one of my brothers and his family for a few days -- stay well and be happy, all y'all! Posts resume sometime around next Wednesday.

This was one place I saw when we pulled off the road leading back to Fort Davis from McDonald Observatory. The bird-song-spangled quiet stretched so far it exceeded the edges of my horizon. I noticed a slight movement -- cows and calves, far off, grazing.
As I'm pulled back into my work, my home life, the things I do here, I make these notes to myself to remember things to do will include more time spent in places like this.
Thanks to all y'all for tagging along.

...but not time enough.
I got back late Tuesday, took my friend to the airport Wednesday. Half-way back to Austin, I felt like turning the car around.
If you click on the pic, and then imagine it surrounding you in all directions, the air smelling like ponderosa pine and wet creosote, no sound except bird-song and the wind in the grass and trees, you'll know why.
I didn't catch many pics while traveling -- too much chat with an old friend, too much rain (fortunately for all the folks living in Fort Davis, Alpine, and Marfa), too little time.
But I did catch a few. Wish I were there, again.
