In April of 2011, Grandson Nick, and parents Kate and Matt visited us here in Tucson. At that time Nick was five. Tomorrow, Nick and mom Kate return with Jaxon, grandson number two who will be five in May. Matt will be taking care of things back in Ft. Collins. Last time we saw the boys was two years ago in Ft. Collins. We are looking forward to a great week in the desert.

Mourning doves bathing
Children of stone pour water
For more than drinking.

Bring Me The Sunset In A Cup
— by Emily Dickinson

Bring me the sunset in a cup,
Reckon the morning’s flagons up
And say how many Dew,
Tell me how far the morning leaps—
Tell me what time the weaver sleeps
Who spun the breadth of blue!

Write me how many notes there be
In the new Robin’s ecstasy
Among astonished boughs—
How many trips the Tortoise makes—
How many cups the Bee partakes,
The Debauchee of Dews!

Also, who laid the Rainbow’s piers,
Also, who leads the docile spheres
By withes of supple blue?
Whose fingers string the stalactite—
Who counts the wampum of the night
To see that none is due?

Who built this little Alban House
And shut the windows down so close
My spirit cannot see?
Who’ll let me out some gala day
With implements to fly away,
Passing Pomposity?

Migrating Turkey Vultures   Leave a comment

turkey-vultures-1-of-1-blogMigrating Turkey Vultures — Image by kenne

As turkey vultures migrate south this time of year, many roost overnight near our neighborhood. Each morning they start circling above to catch the current in their journey to Mexico. 

On a recent cloudy morning they were literally circling directly above our house, so I was able to capture several against the light-gray sky. The images were basically silhouettes against the sky. I wanted to share them, but not in the moment I had captured. So, with the help of Photoshop I layered four images together, then gave them a partly cloudy, somewhat dramatic background creating the above image that speaks to me. Maybe it will speak to you.
