  1. Rugged and beautiful – a building originally built to last has not lasted.Yet the hint of past life is what we imagine…a peaceful place of history…

  2. I love the “ancient sweetness”….what a glorious landscape you live in.

  3. your photos and haikus are always so stunning.

  4. Hey! We were just there two weeks ago! You had to have driven by my house (well, more or less). Hope you had a great trip and don’t you just love that site? I do. I imagine that field covered in teepees and full of activity.

  5. Ancient and neglected but still it retains that special sweetness. How sweet MMT!


  6. your words are sweet to my ear

    beautifully done
