Andrew shows us cactus in bloom.


Where dogs were once kept by the previous property owner. Andrew says the feral cat he saw carrying a rabbit lives here now.
Growing all around Andrew’s house.

Greg and his cousin Andrew.

Lizard’s POV.

A gaggle gather roadside waiting to cross. A car already stopped and let one group by. Another 30 minutes went by before another car stops to let them cross. Most speed by or slow down and honk at, as if they are the only beings that have some place they want to get to.

between liquor store and pizza place
This one located between a liquor store and pizza place. Legalized, retailed and marketed. Open until 7pm. The most bizarrely mundane acquisition of obtaining da reefer ever.

Lea and Ed’s new kitten. A frisky little thing developing its pounce and kill techniques on unsuspecting ankles, toes, and hands trying to pet him. Tuka’s cuteness somehow makes it all okay.


Runners, locals, reading, kids, cameras, lunch, tourists breathing heavy in the thin air while they take quick darting looks at red rocks beyond cell phone screens. 3pm adds grills, dreds, beer, music and folding chairs to the mix. Territories are marked as tailgate parties coalesce in PLs. Excited voices fill the air greeting one another and carrying on. All to be followed by Widespread Panic starting in a few hours.

Two eggs, sunny side.

Who does this belong to?

Giant dandelion-looking flower gone to seed.

View of Denver from Red Rocks.

Hello purple flower. I love you.
no fear
Like I wasn’t even there. Or 10-ft away.

Bigger out here. Giant milkweed buds in a16-oz plastic cup. Mmmmm!

Tuka’s cuteness must be shared once again! But in a more menacing way!
