Ramada Drive Pictures


This is Ramada Drive, running up toward the Rims, only a block long from Rimrock to Mulberry, the streets parallel to the Rims. On the evening of the 4th of July there was a good deal of fireworks set off along the upper part of this street. Must have been visiting grandchildren as we are mostly old folks who live here. They stopped promptly at 10:30 pm when the street reverted to its quiet bucolic ways.


There is a vacant lot or two across from our house. The neighborhood dogs use it frequently. The city put up a sign a few years ago and stopped cutting the grass. So now the neighbors do it about three times a season.


This is the third crop at least this season as we've had an unusual amount of rain. This is what the plains must have looked like back in the 1880s when the first settlers began moving into this area. Waving green seas as far as the eye could see. The rain also brings lots of "no-see-ums" which only get as high as the ankles.

“In beholding old stones we may feel our anxieties about our achievements–and lack of them–slacken . . . Vast landscapes [and seascapes] can have an anxiety–reducing effect similar to ruins, for they are the representatives of infinite space, as ruins are the representatives of infinite time, against which our weak, short-lived bodies seem no less inconsequential than those of moths or spiders.”—Alain de Botton in Status Anxiety
