IMG_2008I drove from Idyllwild to Temecula not long ago to take photos at one of our local wineries but, as things turned out, I ended up having much more fun checking out the antique farm equipment I found along the way!

It’s been quiet around here, I know.

In spite of my best intentions (I was going to blog regularly and fully engage in social media this year, really I was), I have withdrawn from the online world in a big way, doing most of my reading and writing on paper rather than screens. I’ve developed a strong and sudden aversion towards my computer, and all that it contains and connects me to, and find myself leaving my laptop closed for days at a time. I’ve even deleted the Facebook app from my phone. I know!

That being said, I have been having a lot of fun over on my Instagram page. If you hang out over there, come find me so we can connect. :-)

As for the photo, I took it a few weeks ago while visiting the Noah Purifoy Outdoor Desert Art Museum of Assemblage Sculpture in Joshua Tree, a remarkable place that is off the beaten path but well worth seeking out if you’re in the area!
