Abstract Ojos

July 22, 2018
   Heading north today. Back next weekend.

Daily Whip Out: "Abstract Ojos"

Gnarly ironwoods in our front yard.

Random Notes
   Whenever I finish a sketchbook, like I did this morning, I cull all the random notes to carry forward. Here are a few notes from that culling:
  • The end of things is always painful, but life is a poem, be part of it.
  • We're all standing on a whale fishing for minnows.
  • “You stole a horse to track down a stolen horse?”
  • “The best thing to ever happen to me is all the things I didn’t want.”
  • “An ass you are, an ass you remain and an ass you will still be when you end your days.”—Sancho Panza
  • The highest low. It was 94 degrees at 6 a.m. on Friday setting a record of the highest low, breaking the previous high-low temperature of 93 degrees in 2007.
  • They were the bad boys of Baja
  • “A horse can read your heart from a 100 yards away.” “He’s watching me like a snake.”
  • A Wicked Cross: The offspring from first and second degree matings have a significantly increased risk of suffering from an inherited disorder. It’s called line breeding, the selective breeding of animals for a desired feature by mating them with their immediate family.
  • History has ruined many a good story and this has been one of them.
  • Overheard at the Mexicali customs house: “You have no idea what you are up against.”
  • “This is a story that starts when California was an island.”
  • “Black and white is like a poem.”—Robby Muller, cinematographer ("and it stimulates the Imagination by a reduction of information.”)
  • Up ahead he saw an ash colored fly catcher and all the ravens in the word, gathering it seemed to complain about the heat.
  • The horse is the hero. Remember that.
“Whatever you do is evil to somebody.”
—Joseph Campbell
