Skeletons and Wildfire

 That just about puts a fine point on life, right there.
Fire and the end.
Life is the great mystery and well, the other end of it, not much to say but it's fair obvious how that goes, to our limited perspective...

Late Summer

Kids spending time together by the sultry glow of the iPad and hops ripening under the late summer sun.
It's still good, and that's how it goes sometimes when I can pool the resources to notice.

Wedding twenty six years before today...

Anniversary number twenty-six.
Geeze, but this is the best thing to every happen to me. And that's the rock-bottom truth of the matter.
Went up and east, first plans didn't pan out, but good times and talks were had the whole damn time, I'll tell ya. Nothing out of the ordinary there, with this pretty grrl.

Kids sure made a dessert reward to die for, as well. Good, good kids, ours.

Eclipse of the Sun

Eclipse in Spring City. Not total, but odd and full of wonder, nevertheless.
Not a lot of parties- sad, that. Gotta work!

Sky and Concrete

Been getting ready to head to works this week, and it's a frack-ton of change for me. I hope it calms down and becomes manageable within the slippery parameters of my slim mind and marginal abilities.

Another Drive to the Yellowstone Plateau

Yep. It happened again.
I was given permission to head up to Idaho, Wyoming, and Montana to spend a bit of time on the road and next to big waters and under a huge sky. This time I took Sigmund the H√ľnd and tasted the sweet scents of freedom and the road as I ran from weirdened responsibilities and climates down home and at my works. It was good and so much too short.

Summer Vegetables, Festivals, and Reptiles.

The erstwhile Spring City Bluegrass and Folk Festival changed management and venue this year, and over the couple of days it ran this year, it really got to the business of entertaining people. We'll see how things go next year.
Meanwhile, we're starting to see some squash and beans come out of the garden, and along with the flora, Ianto's got some fauna to report, too...

Smoke and Knives

Mitch has been offering the kids some lessons and practicum in making knives, and we were able to take him up on that, finally, this week. He's a great teacher and a patient demonstrator, so the visits go well and with good palpable results.
We've had good sunsets lately, made even better by smoke from wildfires. This is a beautiful world, despite the troubles.

Work and Reverie on the Mountain

We're having fun with the occasional monsoon rains and cool air these days. There's some time and space for trips to the creek and cabin, and for getting things done with the family this summer. Not enough time or energy, but there's some time and space.
