Bleeding Edge

Lower slopes of Taos Mountain in the snow

Let me know when you see the head

Once again, the lower slopes of sacred Taos Mountain. That’s all Pueblo land, and I can never go there. You need to sit and gaze at this for several minutes. This isn’t just a pretty doodad, it can cut you.

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. “Possibly the only place I can get away with this,” he says. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore (Bush’s Brain) put it in a review of John’s first book, Buffalo Lights is the work of a man attuned to the world who sees it differently than you and I and writes about it with a language and a vision of life that is impossible to ignore.” John is the author of BUFFALO LIGHTS, TAOS SOUL, ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE, and THE HELEN CHRONICLES. He has been publishing online since 1996 (Zoo Zone, Farr Site, MacFaust, GRACK!, FarrFeed) and blogs regularly here at JHFARR.COM.

      Ain’t it, though! (Do you see the reclining figure?)

    I know a way we can go there and I have. It’s called Google Earth 🙂 A fine way to see many mysteries…

      Oh, yes! I second that. Haven’t tried it in a while, though. Thanks for reminding me. I probably need to update, too.

    Sleeping, hungry giant. Lying on his side, his face, shoulder, arm and hand showing.

      Ding-ding-ding-ding!
