Heading north today. Back next weekend.
Daily Whip Out: "Abstract Ojos"
Gnarly ironwoods in our front yard.
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.”
