Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?

As the clouds started to converge today, the sky slowly darkening, I decided to defer my errands and race up to the Linda Vista trailhead, about two miles from our house, to see if I could get a good shot of Pusch Ridge in its diaphanous state before the rains really started to come down. I didn't go very far up the trail, but did manage to get these lovely barrel cactus blossoms in the foreground to offset the vaporous quality of the mountains in the distance

Somehow you make it look cool and misty, though I know it is not.

Well, it was cool and misty by our standards. I took the photograph around 1:30pm and it was only 77 degrees!

I know! And it was 110 earlier in the week. A welcome change.

Thank you. The green and "ginger" combination is a specialty of yours, so I'm so glad you like this!

ABOUT DE FILE
You're looking at content from my Live Journal, which I have been keeping since 2003. I consider it a personal blog, though it lacks stream-of-consciousness revelations that typify that genre.

That said, if you manage to discern the confessional mode within entries that are superficially tight-lipped, I will reward you handsomely. Or at least pretend to do so.

In addition to reflections, however mediated, on my daily activities, De File features periodic excavations of material from my "files," a revelation sure to disturb anyone who has seen my garage. It's an experiment in integrating past and present, perhaps with a little redemption along the way.

Politics is always on my mind, but rarely explicit here. I’m working on a theory about what personal writing like this does to literary identification and why some people resist its pull so powerfully. But my goal is to make that theory dissolve in my practice, a density in liquid.

You'll note that I have links to blogs not on LiveJournal directly above, as well as assorted websites of note. The blogs I read regularly on LiveJournal itself fall under "FRIENDS" at the top, for those of you unfamiliar with LJ’s workings.

You can write me. I'm "cbertsch" before the circle-a and "comcast.net" after it.
