aweekfromnow This drunken bastard has been a consistent reminder over the past 11 years of how I can never let myself become a drunken bastard - and that the lows need not be eradicated, rather embraced because the bottom is just as beautiful as the top and this life's certainly a muted, multi-colored spectrum of both sorrow and grace - a reminder the most poignant realizations are birthed of tears, from which emerges a vehement optimism. So, alongside a few other writers, I owe my sometimes hazy but genuine idealism largely to this man I've never met but am wild about still, who died 45 years ago today from a bastard liver failure. Cheers, mate.

aweekfromnow Camped somewhere along the Trail of the Ancients on our road trip to nowhere and found these pretty things. The whole horse (leg and hoof, skull, femurs, pelvis, and anus bones not pictured), but squint and see the ribs up top. Now this overgrown pony's sittin' pretty on my kitchen table. // #explore #gooutsideanddothings #demsbones #newmexico 1w
