RABBIT IN THE SKY

And there he was,
the weekend before
 our total solar eclipse.

A rabbit in the sky!

It is said that the Buddha,
disguised as a rabbit, 
threw himself in a fire
as sacrifice to the god Indra.
His reward was to live as a moon.

Coincidence?
Certainly not.

The rabbit is the totem
for the coming celestial event,
where the moon blocks all of the sun.

BARN AT REST

Weathered old Missouri barn.
Surviving years of service,
storms and storage.

Aging gracefully,
and still in use.

So beautiful.

SWIMMING HOLE

Most country folks
with a spring fed pond,
build a deck
out to the deep part.

Made for running out,
jumping in.

Cools you right down.
