4th of July (Video)

Aother one of “those” videos. Forgive me, I was into Andy Warhol once—but this one’s only half a minute long! (Be sure to set this thing to play at 720p, by the way.) It should be titled “Wind and Trees,” but since today is the 4th of July, that’s what you get. It very much portrays the kind of day we had, in which I seem inclined to just be quiet.

My wife was at her studio. I pulled a few weeds and raked some sticks. The town is full of tourists and all the restaurants are packed, so after she came home, we split a solitary leftover Guinness from the back of the fridge and made a couple of killer bacon-lettuce-tomato sandwiches. The town is going ahead with its fireworks display (never mind the fires), and when that starts we’ll walk 100 yards down the gravel road where we can look down into town and watch a few ka-booms!

    John, thank you. Your postings lately are really moving and exceptionally well written. I’m hoping that my health allows me to fly out to NM for a month in September. That was like a preview…all your pictures are, now.
