Piñon Wind

Here’s about 90 seconds of video from Taos Valley Overlook for you. I was out there today, walked 3.5 miles with my ancient little Kodak Zi6 video thingie, and found all kinds of things to look at. When I put this together in iMovie, I had to turn the volume way down because of the wind noise in all the clips—it’s just as well you can’t make out my spontaneous narration in a couple places—but the movie still gives you a good idea of what it’s like to be alone out there. The first scene is actually from September 28, 2012, but the rest I shot today. It was 60 °F and felt warmer. About time!

In the process of dusting off the Zi6 and turning it on, I discovered some clips from Arizona and elsewhere that I’ve never published before. You can expect some of those to show up next.

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.
