Autumn is here on the Modoc Plateau …

Back under smoke-filled skies … large fires in northern California continue. Had to cancel a fishing trip to Eagle Lake due to the heavy smoke, but had the urge to put my fishing pole in the water one last time for the season. Ash… Continue Reading “Autumn is here on the Modoc Plateau …”

Of Natural Things …

Belly button musing here … Nature is NOT about us, nor is it nonsense. Nature does not “give us fear” nor is it a bully, it is simply sovereign. It is what it is. Wildland fire, floods, hurricanes, drought, volcanic eruptions, earthquakes and disease… Continue Reading “Of Natural Things …”

In Memory of a Friend …

In memory of my friend Russell Medina who passed away in the early morning hours – 1 year ago. Those of us who were together in vigil that night will be coming together once again this evening … I wrote about his passing last… Continue Reading “In Memory of a Friend …”

Another New Year ….

I was out walking in a place of quietness this New Years Day …. No people, no cars, no one but myself for miles around to take it all in. Just me and the merlins, or marsh hawks, out hunting for their supper. Open… Continue Reading “Another New Year ….”
