bubble rainbow IMG_9460

it’s an oregon country rainbow today… i am really having fun with bubbles these days. this was taken as i was leaving fair yesterday, as the sun was starting to set.

white: dragon that kept visiting rich and i during the rising appalachia concert, perched on the hat of a guy in front of us to listen to the music. when the band asked us to identify the riff they were playing, and i heard the opening to ani difranco’s anticipate, note for note, but the band claimed it was a tune by alia, i realized i was a decade older than the band. we all borrow from bob dylan, who borrowed from woody guthrie, it’s the way it goes, just keep dancing and stay young at heart, right? “i was so much older then, i’m younger than that now.”

red: quinn gets to have sleepovers with mama when rich is away at country fair. he looks forward to it all year.

orange IMG_9434

orange: the view looking up from where rich and i ate souvlaki for lunch on a beautiful bench. one of my favorite things about the day i go to fair each year is that for one day, there is no effort and no decision-making required of me in the food department.

yellow IMG_9452

yellow: i did not edit this photo, this is just the way it turned out! again, as i was leaving fair, with that magical setting sun making everything glow like angels are descending on earth. which maybe they were.

green: trees everywhere, the canopy of the wonderful fairy forest fair grounds. with a couple of people who were really happy to see each other in the foreground.

blue: one of hundreds of amazing sculptures decorating absolutely everything at the fair. hummingbird with iridescent blue wings

blue: more end of the fair sky/sun magic, with dream catchers and prayer flags

purple IMG_9407

purple: back home, my black raspberry bush is finally producing, after 3 years… time to dig it up and bring it with me to our new home. these berries taste like “home” to me, no matter where i eat them, because they are such a wild food staple back in new york on the farm where i grew up. these are not quite as tasty (must be the soil) but still wonderful, and made my heart feel good to actually get them to grow here. back to work and packing now after a peaceful, relaxing day of sun, fun, music, and walking around hand in hand with my love.

    Saw this post in my email just now and I haven’t even gotten to scroll all the way through (and can’t, probably, until tomorrow) but had to post a reply for two reasons.

    To say that I remember a student worker of mine making a disgusted noise in response to something on the radio in our work area, and when I asked her what was wrong she said it was “Bob Dylan doing a cover of a Jimi Hendrix song, very badly” (it was Dylan’s own recording of All Along The Watchtower!)

    And also to say that I am going to reply to your email as soon as I can!!! Was so glad to hear back from you and wanted to respond more promptly, but haven’t. xo

    • lol! now i am snorting… and in typical synchronicity style, i just put my mp3 player on shuffle to get ready to do some monotonous lab work, and bob is crooning “my back pages” at me as i type this reply. 🙂

    I like the fair through the lens of your camera. Especially since the photos needed to be “safe” for blog viewers. Ha!!!
