How We Spent the 4th of July

It was different sort of day for us, with just one trip to town. The noisy neighbors were unaccountably and fortunately gone. The weather was warm and breezy. We had bratwursts and veggies to cook for supper, with caramel butter pecan cream and carrot cake for desert. After dark we walked fifty yards down the road to watch the town fireworks, which seemed a bit tame compared to shows in years past. The spontaneous neighborhood blasts were considerably louder and a few skyrockets almost as colorful.

Enjoy your holidays whenever and how you can—we did!

John Hamilton Farr lives in Taos, New Mexico, U.S.A. with his classical pianist wife. As New York Times best-selling author James C. Moore tells 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. His latest endeavor is the aptly-named GODDAMN BUFFALO at Substack.
