Wild Dreams of a New Beginning

Wild Dreams of a New Beginning

Ruth and Sophia were looking at a train on the railroad, half a mile away and a few hundred feet above us.

Although this image has no real bearing upon the subject of the poem, when I first looked at it on the computer I though of Lawrence Ferlinghetti's Wild Dreams of a New Beginning. Here are a few lines that seems most fitting:

"...
Eyes smell flowers and become them
...
the washed land awakes again to wilderness
the only sound a vast thrumming of crickets"

and here is the full text for those with the inclination to read the entire poem:

Wild Dreams of a New Beginning

June Moon

June Moon

This is one of the biggest, brightest reasons that I love living in the country. There are thousands more in the night sky

Watching the Sunset

Watching the Sunset

It was cold and the sun was down before we got there (we had to set up our tent first). But I think this shot alone made it worthwhile.

Exploring the Casa Grande Ruins

Exploring the Casa Grande Ruins

We went to see the fascinating Casa Grande Ruins (Near Phoenix, AZ), some of the doors were a little too small for Ruth and I, but they were just the right size for Sophia.

Frosty Day

Frosty Day

I took some pictures the other day of the frost in our shelter belt. There must have been a little north wind to cause the frost to form only on the one side, I thought the effect was pretty interesting though.

Ready for a hike

Ready for a hike

Poor Sophia has been cooped up indoors too much this winter. She put on her mommies shoes and was walking around with a water bottle. I think she was hinting that it's time to go for a hike; I'd be happy to oblige were it not for the foot of snow outside.

"These are not the kittens you are looking for."

They grow up so fast

They grow up so fast

That is apple juice in the cup, I swear, just plain old one-hundred percent alcohol free apple juice. Sophia always looks that drunk after a successful nap.

Morning Joe

Morning Joe

The espresso demitasse was the perfect size for Sophia, but--the poor girl--her mom only let her drink cocoa from it.

Sophia Slides

Sophia Slides

I took this a couple of weeks ago. We don't get too many beautiful fall days in Montana, so Ruth and I thought that the playground would be a great way to enjoy the nice weather while it lasted. This was Sophia's first experience with slides--she LOVED it. She'd slide down at a snail's pace, but you could tell that to her it was blazing fast.
