Today I spent the morning organizing and tidying up my desk, and also the goals I need to fulfill before the semester ends. Seems far away, but read the alternative title of today’s post…
And now I am working on my notes in the library, and the light in the street was so perfect I had to take a picture of it. I like my city pretty much, it is like a neverending boring and beautiful postcard.
The Blowing Rock
affords a breathtaking view across the John’s River Gorge to the
distant mountains. Grandfather Mountain is in the background. Warm air
from the gorge sweeps ever upward to the Rock, giving it its name.
This postcard from the World’s Fair collection is probably my favorite. At first glance it looks a bit boring. However, unlike most postcards that are made of paper, this one is wood. The message on the back is my favorite part, if you read closely you’ll notice that it’s full of tree related puns.

Repulses the Indians, then names rocks after their legends.
beautiful scene of sagebrush with its colorful pink blossoms is a
common sight in the southwest. It stretches as far as the eye can see
and besides being beautiful, has practical purposes, as deer and other
wildlife feed on it. Sagebrush blooms only after a heavy rain but will
bloom in any season. It’s referred to as Cenizo by many Anglos as well
as Latin Americans.
