Beautiful Elk

I went on a ride today, and I came across these lovely elk. They were hiding in a grove of trees, and some gentlemen were kind enough to point them out. I'm still using my crappy cell phone camera, but you get the idea.

Green winds and red trees

August 1st and nearly a month since my last post. It doesn't feel like it's been that long, but I live and love among the temporally challenged.

The lazy recap: C's Birthday, C and my anniversary (5 years married, 12 years as a couple), The wedding of two dear friends, a dead and now resuscitated car, the painting of doors and shelves, a bit of cooking, a lot of Dr. Who, Closet Land (great film), Read: A Tree Grows in Brooklyn by Betty Smith, The Bloody Chamber by Angela Carter, The Drowned World by J.G. Ballard.

But...on to the true purpose of my post:

Literary Diversions on the web that make me very happy, indeed:

The Girl Who Circumnavigated Fairlyland in a Ship of Her Own Making

The Red Tree by Caitlín R. Kiernan

Of bloody apples and poisoned orchards
