Ocotillo Explosions, Dark Blue Bonnets, And Lions

We have been hard hit this year by an explosive spring flower demonstration. The Ocotillo blooms make it look like Van Gogh went mad with a paintbrush, dotting the landscape with reflective orange and red highlights, matching the color of the desert sunsets. And the Crazy Gaint Bluebonnets add a dark blue, almost purple hue to reflect the morning sky. 

In other news, a couple of days ago, a friend and I spotted a Mountain Lion pacing around in front of its cave, the 2nd lion I have seen out here so far.  

This is certainly the Texas that most people are unfamiliar with.

Domain Change

I am back in Terlingua for a couple of months. I'll be playing lots of shows  and working on the studio a bit. Last night I played at the Starlight Theater to a large and appreciative spring break crowd. I appreciated them right back. 

It has been raining for the last couple of hours (first rainfall in several months) and the smell of creosote is very potent. It smells similar to sage, which happens to be one of favorite smells. All the folks out here who are catching their own water are very satisfied right now. 

For those of you who have bookmarked, I am working on fixing the forwarding. I recently changed domain hosts and so there is a bit of a lag. I also purchased, which will probably become the default domain name for this blog. Feel free to bookmark it. I tried to purchase awhile back, but there is a cybersquatter who owns it and wants $10,000 for it. earthlanguage.NET comparatively was a bargain at only $12.99 .
