Free Tires

pile of old tires

Eternal contradiction of New Mexico »Buy This Photo!«

Moving to New Mexico in ’99 was a good way to escape from America, or so I thought at the time, but it looks like it followed me here. (My self certainly did.) The tires magically appeared in the turnaround circle of the dirt road that no one owns or gives a shit about in the middle of the last big snowstorm. I thought about tossing them into the sagebrush. Leaving them where they are is better, though: I’d like to see how long it takes for more trash to be added to the pile!

Yes, I’m in one of those moods. But I have a plan.

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.
