the future approaches

Here’s our situation, conveniently located within one photograph: an almost-gone farmhouse and so many wind turbines I can’t even count them.

Also – and I won’t divulge how I know this – that field was a lot muddier than it looked.

*Yes, that is the actual name of the place. Apparently the town’s founder named it for his daughter, Wastella. My question is who in the hell would give their child a name like that??!?

Unseen things

It was the foggiest of days and things like deer and feral hogs and towns and other cars kept shifting in and out of sight. And so did all the giant wind turbines.

The place was at a crossroads

This old school – now without either students or a roof – is caught right there between the agricultural past and the wind-energy future.

Yield: this is bigger than all of us

I took a bit of a road trip the other day, down a small farm road. I was surprised by how many wind turbines had sprouted in the fields.

If you can make your mind think these things are a lot smaller than they are, maybe you can also make it believe that it’s just a stack of paisleys. Because that’s a thing, right?
