Fire In The Sky

It was the coldest morning of the year and the setting moon’s light brilliantly contrasted the deep blue cloudless sky as I made my way to the Indian Springs.  I’ve been meaning to get some pictures of the “Monster Spring“, as the locals used to call it, in a morning light.

It’s been a great year working out at the Springs and I want to thank Pati, Lindsay, Rich, Mark, John, Sue, Thomas, Chakry, Sriram, Don, Ron, Paul, Anne, Amanda and everyone else who lent a hand or showed support.

The coolest thing that happened to me this past year was my rediscovery of Philosophy thanks to my good friends at Tragedy And Hope.  It’s never too late, nor too early, nor too often to study Philosophy.

Today though, we are interested in Physics.

The conditions were perfect for burning brush piles and I was able to light 34.  In half of those I just poked my torch into the center of the pile instead of doing the usual chainsaw work to create a consolidated pile to ignite.

And the Marl Pit Bridge.

See you at the Springs!
