I went to Iceland to see the northern lights. No luck on seeing the lights -- nature can be fickle like that. But I did get an opportunity to twirl alone in the great vast whiteness that is Iceland in the winter. What's better than that?
It will surprise no one who knows me well that there was a cemetery visit on a recent Texas Road Trip that took us from Austin to Marfa to Big Bend and back to Austin. We saw shooting stars, lots of art (including the Target (Marathon) and Prada Store (Marfa).
The Terlingua Cemetery dates back to 1903 and among those buried there are miners who died in mining accidents or died from mercury poisoning and residents who succumbed to the flu epidemic of 1918-19. Graves are often marked by simple wooden crosses but a number of the later graves reflect the lives -- and loves -- of those who are buried there.
Fitting to stop by in the harsh light of the Texas sun. Rest in peace.
I just did a little back end housekeeping here at Scribbles & Photos -- publishing drafts that were languishing, and deleting one word drafts (hard to figure out what I planned to write about in 2015 from one word!). Oh, and I went through and deleted all my posts related to my Lytro camera -- the manufacturer retired the website where users could post photos so none of the photos were showing up! I guess that camera truly was a flash in the pan.
One might thing that all this cleaning was because I'm going to be posting more here but it started with my thinking I was going to take everything off-line since I'd been on such a long hiatus (my last post was in February 2018 (not including the posts I published today that is)! Now that the back end housekeeping is done, I really can't predict if I'll be posting more. Best I can say is, we'll see.
