A Day Late, But Who Cares?

The re-roof of my house begins today. But the rains came torrents.

Two new leaks joined to former leaks in pooling on floor and furniture. I knew that I was cutting it close. But the leaks are welcome since they are the result of wonderful rain. I don't know quite how to describe what rain feels like and how it gives even an emotional, mental relief after a long desert drought. It is so welcome.

It's a Bob Dylan Day!

Concert tonight at 8 PM at the Pavilion. Holding tickets in my hand and eagerly waiting. Makes it difficult to type and work.

It's a dog. Sorry, Odette. Even if you are toilet-trained.

Hope to have pics soon.

Smoke is Returning

Arizona is better (west of me).

So is Carlsbad, NM (south of me).

And the same is true for the Raton fire in NM (north of me...east we are blocked by the Sandia Mts. Anyone have a helicopter to loan?).

Now there is a new fire blowing smoke our way. Just slightly northwest of Albuquerque, between Jemez and Los Alamos.

Mix in our near 100 degree weather and you can imagine why I just lied around all day yesterday. Though, in a strange sort of way, I am sort of getting used to the evening skies.

Smoke is Clearing

The view that I returned to in ABQ after my vacation. Smoke settled in the valley from the Arizona fires. This is pretty much what I saw for a few days.

It has cleared now, after an additional week of clear days with winds bringing the smoke back each evening. May be some of the contributing factor to my disorientation last week.

While I Was Away

Tried to post here from Thailand during the month of May, but couldn't get through the overseas security passwords. Am back now in Albuquerque and plan to do some back posting of my wonderful adventure being in southeast Asia!

This is some really cool sheep herding!

I am finishing the book trilogy.

Have you seen the movies, that are based on the Swedish television series, that are based on the books?

Did you know that Hollywood plans to remake the movie that is based on the series that are based on the books. Seriously.

What a corporate franchise, based on the disenfranchised and anti-corporate world!

Maybe it's because of the spring in time. Maybe it's because I've been cleaning my house, or because I've got a bit of my life back. (The huge Albuquerque Heading Home initiative has subsided. Just a bit.)

Maybe it's Lent. I love Lent.

Maybe it's because Andy flew through Albuquerque recently and commented that I hadn't been writing for awhile. I was surprised to know anyone still checked.

Maybe it's because I'm in prep mode for a trip to Thailand. Travel always inspires writing.

Or, maybe, I'm procrastinating at work!
