Circle in the Clouds

Rio Pueblo gorge

Looking south out of the Rio Pueblo gorge to the canyon of the Rio Grande. Rio Grande del Norte National Monument.

A few years back I had a vision in a dream. We were standing outside in the night. A glowing ring shot down from a storm cloud at UFO-speed, hovered, checked us out on all sides, and zoomed silently away. I took this as a benediction. Later there was a storm and dark gray water overflowing from a flagstone-lined ditch, but we were safe inside. The house was Mexican or Mediterranean with stone floors. Rain that did blow in through open windows ran harmlessly away.

The other day I took this picture high above the Rio Pueblo. (That’s the Rio Grande is in the distance.) When I opened the file later on my laptop, the thing jumped out immediately. It kind of shimmers and you don’t quite see it but it registers.

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 totally believe! Did you see the article in the news today about the American Airlines pilot who reported seeing something over Phoenix? He called it in to the Albuquerque airport – so they were close!
