From Dust to Dust, And The Devil In The Dust

December 4, 2019
   Back on the dust wagon.

Apaches & Dust Devils

   All the tribes have a healthy respect and dread of dust devils. The Sinagua In-dins called them "sivulogi," and the word was uttered in a hushed whisper, out of respect, because they believed dust devils are evil spirits emerging from the ground.

A Retweak of A Retweak Daily Whip Out:
"Caught In A Dust Devil: The Last Place An Apache Ever Wants to Be"

Daily Whip Out: "On They Rode"

Daily Whip Out:
"Geronimo Approaches Juh's Stronghold"

Daily Sketchbook Whip Out: "Ridin' High"

Daily Whip Out: "Dust Devil Gigantus"

Daily Whip Out:
"Dust Storm In The Peloncillos"

Daily Whip Out: "Dust Storm at Black Hawk"

"Dust Storm In Z's Bathroom"

(full disclosure: I gifted this painting to Ms. Z at Z's Thai Food Restaurant next door to the True West World Headquarters and she put it in her bathroom.)

   And then, who can ever forget Dusty.

Daily Whip Out: "Dusty In Dust"

The Dust Deal
   See, here's the deal on me and dust. I actually hate it. I grew up in it, tasted it daily, and couldn't get it out of my clothes, or, out of my life, until I moved to Cave Creek where the wind rarely blows.

   So now I fondly remember it, at least in pictures. Such is life.

"My dad always said dust devils came up because the devil was moving around underground, causing a commotion."
