Project Spectrum June

In an end-of-the-month effort to keep up with Project Spectrum, I rummaged through my photos and came up with a few in blue.

Sugar and spice and everything nice, that's what cables are made of. and these were made with Pleasure. Ah, such a soft and pleasant yarn. Darn you, Berocco for getting rid of it. It kept my brother nice and toasty this winter though.

cayuaga lake A Beautiful day fishing on the lake. It was a fluke day for April in CNY. I remember needing to put on sunscreen, feeling the sun shine on my back and feeling the relaxation of that warmth right to the end's of my toes.

And of course I give you an Arizona sky. Can you see the "little fluffy clouds?"

Burton: "What were the skies like when you were young?"
Jones: "They went on forever – They - When I - We lived in Arizona, and the skies always had little fluffy clouds in 'em, and they were long, clear, and there were lots of stars, at night. And when it would rain, they would all turn - They were beautiful, the most beautiful skies as a matter of fact. Um, the sunsets were purple and red and yellow and on fire, and the clouds would catch the colors everywhere. That's uh, neat cause I used to look at them all the time, when I was little. You don't see that. You might still see it in the desert."

(if you have no idea what I am talking about, it's a "techno" song from the 90's by Orb)

Santa Catalinas

I also have to include one of my favorite plants evah! Hello, Mr. Sauguaro. This guy is more than 50 years old (he has arms). One of the great things about these cacti is that they have so much personality. If you're walking around in the desert forest like I was here, you'll see that some look like they are waving at you. Some look like they are running away from you. Some are posing and looking a little petulant. It's great.


Ah, so long June. I'm glad you're over. I'm looking forward to July, August and the rest of my going-to-be-wonderful life.
