Calling All Colors

Resa’s tree kissed colorful Dawn

Cracked clouds strangled sun

Cracked clouds covered Corrales

The Rio Grande eats bank crumbles

Clouds collided

Cranes look north anticipation

A final gasp glowing color

Daddy perches tangled arches

Tangle Heart pinches purple



I didn’t see Daddy Owl when I first went out tonight, and Mama Owl’s ear tufts just barely showed in her nest. I walked over to see the cranes. On the way back from the cranes I could hear Mama Owl hooting from her nest, but there was no answer from Daddy Owl. When I got up to our gate, I heard Daddy Owl answering with different hoots than the normal hoots when he answers Mama Owl. It was getting dark, but I walked down to see what was up with Daddy Owl. He had a gopher. He sat on a large branch and continued his hooting. When the dusk was almost darkness, I saw the silhouette of Mama Owl pop up out of the nest. The Bazooka could not focus on her in the darkness. She flew over to Daddy Owl, he gave her the gopher, and she flew back to her nest. I got a blurry shot right after Daddy Owl gave Mama Owl the gopher.

You can see how much bigger Mama Owl is than Daddy Owl.

Almost half-moon tonight


The forecast was for rain between 2:00 am and 5:00 am, clearing after sunrise with winds in the afternoon. They got the clearing after sunrise and winds right. We didn’t get a drop of rain that I could tell. On my way home at 4:15 pm, the dust made clouds that obscured the sun.

The Iron Sign

First off, I rerecorded the vocals on War that I posted on February 27th. If you would like to listen to the song the new vocals go to:

Our Iron “arc” sign was delivered today. I clamped it on to see how everyone likes it now that we are used to the blue sign I put up in November. If we decide to keep the iron sign on the monument, then I will drill it and mount it permanently, and we’ll find another place for the blue sign. If I put the blue sign back on the monument, then I put the iron sign somewhere else.

The sky and clouds were exceptionally beautiful tonight
