An Ocean for New Mexico

Reid State Park, Maine

Stood there half an hour, hardly comprehending

Gaze on this, ye dry ones, and despair! There’s plenty of water on the planet, just not in the Rio Grande or falling from the skies upon the land I love. What you see here is the Atlantic Ocean just off Reid State Park near Georgetown, Maine. I had to get away from crushing family vibes and psychic horror yesterday, and this is where I went. Not half bad, muchachos!

Twenty-four hours from now, I’ll be on my way to Baltimore and then back to the frigging desert. Pray for rain and that my sweetie finds her way to Albuquerque, so I don’t have to hitchhike back to Taos.

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.

    Beautiful! Best of both things I love, pine trees and the ocean together!
