I know, I know. The weedwhacker’s in the shop, okay? »Buy This Photo!«

This post was silly and has been removed. Bah!

But I can tell you that I”ve learned a thing or two about being stuck. (Fear will do that to a man.) When it comes to art, you have to let it do what it will do. I had a 350-page pile of selected blog posts from the last five year to make into a book, but after half a year of dithering and re-arranging, no way would it come together as a solid piece of work. You see what’s going on here, right? But I know what we need around this joint.

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.

    “I will not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.” -Dune

      Oh yes, good stuff! One has to watch what one tells oneself. It’s the only game in town.

      You’re welcome! She’s something else. When she wants to go out but we don’t want her to, we say, “Not now!” and she turns away from the door…
