31 January 2013


       Yesterday it was sixtysomething degrees in North Carolina, with thick cloud cover, high winds and rain. When I woke up this morning the house was chilly. I looked out the window. There was snow on the ground and the sky was a bluish void. These photos were taken back in October, though. The same exact thing happened then, too.

Not A Black Widow

       I mentioned the black widows. This is not one of them. But see those mountains in the distance? That's Appalachia, baby. An entire ocean of mountains, wave upon wave, and some of the oldest in the world at that.

Looking Westward

       During the late summer, this is what the path along the South-facing side of our house looks like. I have found several black widows here.

Back To It

       We are now connected to the internet once again after a seven month-long hiatus (during which time my family and I relocated to North Carolina and have been slowly settling in.)  My activity on this blog has been pretty minimal - a few posts here and there as time and technology have allowed.
        Anyway, this is the view from my back porch. I took this photo back in August, I think. Since then, I have taken many photos of the view from my back porch. What does any of it mean? Stay tuned & maybe you'll find out.
