Where Lava Once Flowed 2/23/15

2:23:15 fence far sigWater, water, water….There is no shortage of water in the desert but exactly the right amount , a perfect ratio of water to rock, water to sand, insuring that wide free open, generous spacing among plants and animals, homes and towns and cities, which makes the arid West so different from any other part of the nation. There is no lack of water here unless you try to establish a city where no city should be.”
~Edward Abbey
Flashback – Sunday, February 23, 2014 (the link also has a past photo for 2012 and 2013).
February 23, 2014Monday, February 23, 2015 – I spent my day in good company as I I had the pleasure of visiting with one of my friends who lives far away and her youngest daughter, and met a new friend who is visiting also. I only get to see my long time friend once every few years since she moved away.  We went out into nature and I’ll share a little with you!  She took me to dinner for sushi, but I don’t have any photos for that 🙂

Note this haiku could also be written and celebrated as:
“out in the desert
the winter wind is blowing
we hurray to warmth”
We definitely said, “Hurray!” when we got into the hotsprings!

out in a field
find a dead cow
what a fine meal.

They don’t like spies
with staring eyes
take their leave
black birds flying”
