the other half of the year

brussels  

this part of the year adds to my spirit the old stones that tells me of history of this land in my blood! adds the liveliness of people living together, working together, a goal! Even this end of summer 2020, challenged with a world wide pandemic of a virus!

Arrived last evening enforced mask wearers in the bus and lively clusters of unmasked people at sidewalk cafés!

Desert near Tecopa

Of course in my mind the awesome near Death Valley desert . Where a few people live among the daily remembrance of once volcanos, slides of lava now hardened and black, Colors of deep sunset and ochre , a once Great Lake with big fish , now tiny in hidden creeks. Some those, comfortable realize the daily is unimportant !
