Blackbird…

The blackbird whirled in the autumn winds.
It was a small part of the pantomime….

When the blackbird flew out of sight,
It marked the edge
Of one of many circles.

hazy day (Siberian Fire’s Smoke)

It seemed most of the days we traveled about the Joshua Tree/Salton Sea areas, there was a haze in the air. The crisp blue skies were sometimes missing. I then learned that the smoke from massive fires in Siberia was reportedly being carried across the Pacific Ocean into the Western U.S. A bit sobering considering Fukushima Daiichi?

Below is the smoke filtering into the East Lake (Oregon) caldera from a nearby forest fire in 2006. It is not unusual during the Summer forest fire season in Oregon to have smoke drift into areas from the fires to the South/East.

Transitions can be subtle…

The image below doesn’t seem to depict much in the way of being volatile or powerful. Yet, this image was as the weather transitioned from a few gusts of wind to, for the next several hours, sustained forty mile per hour winds with gusts pushing 70 mph in Portland and at 90 mph on the Oregon Coast. The front pushed up the Oregon Coast into Washington, skirting Portland, with nary a raindrop in Portland and temps in the low 60’s. 100,0000 residences were without power; traffic signals went out snarling rush hour/holiday shoppers traffic; and in one tragic moment a tree fell killing an 11 year old boy in a car and injuring his mother. Not a huge weather event, but the transition below was a perfect image of darkness over taking light.

Destiny…ignoring the signs

I  had control of the reflections…I was oblivious to the winds coming my way…the reflections became fractured, broken, confusing…calamity ensued…now what?

Actually, I propped an old mirror up against a fence, outside. Unusually strong East winds hit the area. I had seen the forecast and high wind advisory. The winds came right up against that slatted fence and smash, down went the large mirror. Bad luck, I’d say by the morning light! Now I have a mess to clean up. Typical!

All that sand………….

All that sand, of late, makes me think of water and that, of course, makes me think of fish…big fish, little fish, trout. The strong desert winds are typical of strong winds blowing across the lake or up the river canyons. This parched mind needs to secure ‘the moment’ once again.
