Riding on the Rio Grande


In March. Cool, windy, rocky, blue skies, movie set on the Rio Grande, long drive to get there, long drive back, reading ‘Battle Of Wits’ at night, good food, good friends June and April, wine, carrying hay at night to Buck in a high wind and hay scattered all over the mountains all the way to Stude Butte.

Ares in April, Rain and Girl In The Future City


Lighthouse Island was supposed to be out in July — then August —now Amazon and Barnes and Noble say October — no matter, it will be out sooner or later. Am starting on a sort of sequel which, like Vance’s The Dying Earth series, takes different characters through the same ecological disaster. Foudn this image of Girl In The Future City in Bing images, so there is Nadia, on a rooftop, calculating her escape route. The only incongruous element in this image is the river.

Ares has brought rain and a birthday.
