it's bizarre





lurking in the Nevada desert with a pirate .... who would have thought the desert was so full of life ,.... i knelt to take photos of some tiny desert pansy/violet flowers ...and as i looked up i realised the entire plateau was a carpet of little purple flowers defying the dry dust wind and cold blizzard snows and scorching sun that changes from one hour to the next




yesterday i saw my first real live wild coyote ....
and a few days ago on the way to San Francisco i smelt my first skunk and ate my first bagel dog...weeeeeeeooooowwwwwww nasty

lying on the lawn in a bikini one day watching an american eagle swooping around scanning for ... marmots and chipmunks...? ....and the following day in a blizzard on the same lawn dressed for antarctica .... whuh?????

ahhhhhhh Americana,.... kitsch and squeaky clean perfect front yards ...flags and big big trucks the wild wild west movie continues....

This brings me so back home. I used to have coyotes come into my back yard all the time as a kid.... in the evening of course. My friend had a pet skunk that was de-stinked! :) Although I think it wouldn't be done now due to animal ethics.

Thanks so much for this post.
