Busy as a one-eyed dog in a smokehouse...

A rammed earth subcontractor bellied up on me and I decided to put together a crew and self-perform it...

All 276,725 pounds of it...

I've been busy with other/life/work type 'o stuff...I think the anniversary of this blog even came and went...

These are the first two of a total of seven walls...

Las nubes, el maíz, el granero, la lluvia y mija

Las nubes, el maíz, el granero ... y la lluvia

This was shot up in Illinois just outside of Chicago, moving my daughter up there a few weeks ago to start Law School. Shot from my iPhone, in a rainstorm, window down, driving 65mph, pulling a UHaul, daughter napping.

It was a dadder-daughter rite of passage weekend aka life milestone event. Five straight days of one-on-one time, perhaps for the last time in our lives. Just being together, talking, laughing, being quiet, thinking.

I miss her.


While I'm very happy for her, and very proud of her, and excited for her embarking on some intensive studies and a career, this photo pretty much reflects my mood with regard to her absence from my life, our lives, our local proximity. We all miss her.

She's not my little girl anymore.

Y'all have a good weekend.
