I’ve been absent for a while — the Daily Prompt had ceased to prompt AND my mind has been preoccupied with other things, The Brothers Path, of course, but also just doing a lot of thinking. I wish I could express WHAT I’ve been thinking about, but it’s really a cauldron up there right now cooking some kind of exotic stew. Polar Bear Yeti T. Almost-a-Full-Grown-Dog has her official birthday on March 12. She was four months old when I got her which would have put her REAL birthday around then, and it happens to be the anniversary of the day I had to put Lily to sleep. These February days have been strangely warm, so it looks like the City of Monte Vista will open the golf course early — nice for them, unfortunate for us since it’s essentially a large park bordered by a field. Walking around it and through it and out of it has been a real pleasure for Dusty, Bear and me. I’ve also found more hiking trails nearby so if I can find some motion sickness meds for Bear that don’t knock her out, we can just go hiking 🙂
I’ve been busy with the art co-op doing publicity. I have a feeling that will prove to have been good experience for promoting my book.
It’s incredibly beautiful here with particular clouds over the Sangre de Cristos and storms coming up over the San Juans. The Sandhill Cranes are here, flying over the house several times a day, sometimes so close they sound as if they are in the tree beside the garage. They are beautiful and goofy; dinosaur birds and I can’t think of a more intriguing harbinger of spring.
