It was a barbed-wire life


Every single thing in this scene points to a life that’s been lived on a hard and unforgiving edge.

and like ghosts, they’re gone

On the far side of a tiny town, if you take the road that looks like it doesn’t go anywhere, you’ll pass by a little church.

The morning sun caught the squares of the window screen’s mesh in  a way that obscured the flowers, making them seem momentary, like if I looked again, they’d be gone.

And here’s the daily Bruce Cockburn, with “Use Me While You Can,” of his spoken word pieces that is just outstanding.

Do you think that, all this time, it’s been just a dream?

This place feels like the end of time.

But it’s nice that the statue can keep her face out of the sun.

Duplex

The road snakes its way back toward Santa Rosa, behind this adobe building, which I have taken the liberty of calling a duplex.

If you would rather go to Fort Sumner and it hasn’t rained in a while and you’re feeling brave, you can take County Road 2P. It’s neither paved nor fenced, giving the occasional traveler a very close look at cows.
