the heart‘bleat’ of texas hill country…

nothing like a good contrast of landscape. coming right back from quirky baltimore saturated with color & layered outsider art objects…to the wild, wild west sepia tones of a ranch i randomly found myself on at an event.

sheep bleating, flash mobs of deer leaping, an alien landscape of endless mesquite bushes…and craggly, antiquarian burr oak trees reaching out their spiny offerings of &#39hospitality.&#39

you never know when the Virgin Mary will appear…

in this case, she showed up on the socks of a man with a unicorn head, on Team Super Awesome. A crying Jesus also made a special guest appearance.

my boyfriend races in the mad sport known as Cyclocross; a Belgian specialty which combines road cycling with dismounting and running up insane hills, through mud & sand pits, and jumping and carrying your bike over barriers much like horses jump over in cross-country. All at an epic breakneck pace. Oh, and did i mention, full speed… for an entire hour.

the cyclocross world is rife with characters such as these, and many more. there are wigs. there are copious amounts of cowbells. there are sometimes tutus, and often vuvuzelas. there is heckling. once there was even a full blown mariachi band. it&#39s a mad, mad world – grueling & fun.

to watch, that is.
