Art in the Corner

Ever since we moved to this property in 2002, I have wanted to use one of the old rusted farm implements as an art piece. 17 years later, here is the piece pretty much exactly how I imagined it. The rock slab is a 2500 pound bluestone slab from Pennsylvania. Getting that properly staged was a thing, but it all went surprisingly smoothly.

Busting Ice and Bothering Geese!

With age does not always wisdom come. But, fun it was! We had a crazy-cold week that froze the river, and now a crazy-warm day to test out the water.  Nice.

Mogli leads the way.

The mic on my phone was broken, but just imaging the sound of crunching ice.

Time for a break.

Here, imagine geese honking their displeasure! and ice popping as it melts. Hit ‘play’ and it is not upside down.

Sweet Mogli has captured a hunk of ice to take home! (Video is correct when plays)

Burn Baby Burn: 2017 Winter Solstice Fire

Cerbe meets mogli before dark

Music. Great food. Huge fire. Friends. Boilo. What more could you want?

Early birds get to see the lighting

Mmmmmm. Beer.

The lighting

Put it in perspective: 100 feet of flame.

This year the fairy ring of osage oranges turned into a warning line for fire spread. We had to get water buckets and a hose out for the first time ever.

The fire spreads

View from the field

The two (or three) pods making up the solstice party are always a good mix. Food and cheesy Christmas music in the barn. Fire and live music in the field. This year some of the real music moved into the barn during a brief rain.

It’s River o’Clock

Leave a comment

Years ago, my son Eli and I decided to build an art project underwater in the river. We started with the biggest rock around for hundreds of yards and built a pool around that. Then we began moving the wall of the pool out into the river in search of the late afternoon sun.

Here is what the river looks like.

Ultimately, we ended up with a chronograph. There’s a rock for every hour. Here’s how that ends up looking.

Remember, all of these pictures were taken at 3 o’clock. So sun everywhere. Our trees are damn tall.
