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.

This grave marker doesn’t have any names or dates on it. It’s small, only about a foot high. Unlike markers in fancier cemeteries, it’s made from concrete. Time has been hard on it, and now there’s a crack that runs from the base nearly all the way to the arms. A loop of wire, twisted a few times, does what it can to hold the little monument together. For now, anyway.

If you manage to find Puerto de Luna, keep going until you cross the Pecos River, then take the first turn to the right. After a bit, you’ll see a tiny church on the right side of the road. The sign over the door says Santa Inez.

It was closed up the day we were there.

But I shot this through one of the windows, looking straight across the tiny sanctuary and out the other side.
