Day 4 – The Texas Twister

Day 4 - Texas Twister FINAL

One thing I do not miss about Texas – having recently moved back to New Mexico where I grew up – is the annual threat of tornadoes. The tornado is like a villain from an Old West saga:  you know it’s coming, it’s going to be devastating and your best bet is to hide no matter how brave and invulnerable you think you are. I’ve had plenty of close calls with real tornadoes (one almost took the roof off of my house) and this past year has been another test from a tornado of health problems for me. So, I think of this exercise as something of an exorcism:  “just keep on moving and leave me alone, you’ve done enough damage already.” Sometimes all you can do is pick up the broken pieces, rebuild and move on.

Most of my influences come from having traveled the world at a young age, my love of nature, Looney Tunes cartoons, my study of art history and history in general.
