Bobcat 9_29_20

Two more fleetings shots of our resident bobcat. He likes to swing by in the late afternoon.

O. M. G.

So how are we all feeling this morning. Fresh and dewy eyed with abundant optimism? Or exhausted from a heaping pile of PTSD after an evening of abuse? Trump’s debate tactic was supposed to be a strategy of “coming out swinging”, but instead was a display of barking mad dementia. Biden will take away our cows? Forest countries? Stand back and stand by? The Logan Act? So much cray packed into a 90 minute zee.

Debates don’t really change minds. Polls change very little after them. It isn’t important who “won” this debacle. The next ones won’t go any better (although I do like the suggestion that anyone who speaks out of turn… has his voice digitally raised several octaves).

Negativism tends to instill apathy and even fear. Who wants to vote if its gonna be a war zone? There is also the silly “both sides do it” refrain that should now be laid to rest. Trump has lost his mind and the support of most American voters. Now he has to go all terror, all the time and turn off voters.

He will fail. The sham he has built is crumbling. And the final stake through it will be our vote. Make sure you are registered and vote early if possible. Make sure you fill out your ballot fully and properly. Make sure everyone you know is doing the same.

Use vote.org to check your polling place if you intend to vote in person, use iwillvote.com to find your registration status and early voting info or check out votingworks.us if you don’t think your vote counts.

Remember it’s the little things in life that can lead to a full and happy mental recovery.

Eldo Odds 9_20

A nice tribute to RBG on the rail trail, a mystery plant (wolfberry?) I’m seeing all over the greenbelt and interesting rain cloud over the hood.

Bobcat 9_22_20

This old feller was drinking out of our bird bath this afternoon. My first sighting of a bobcat in Eldo. Just managed to get a shot of him sauntering off.

RBG 9_18_20

Anytime we lose a pillar of strength and an unwavering measure of what is right… we lose a giant hole in the fabric of who we are. These people have left far more than a memory or a page in history. They have left a mark on everything we are. That should remind us to fight the fight and never despair.

One of my new favorite songs (and an anthem for 2020), now lives on after the artist is gone. And there are many, many more songs. And as long as we remember, those songs will live on…

Rainbow cloud and sunset virga 9_15_20

Interesting “cloudbow” from the rain over the mountains. The sunset was graced by a passing cloud and a virga burst falling from it.
