PERSONAL ESSAYS AND VISIONS from 7,000 feet. For some of us who end up in the Terrible High Desert™ and mountains of northern New Mexico, raw Nature is a kind of medicine. There’s something alien and ancient here that doesn’t need us. Subscribe to this and you will have a taste.
From the introduction to ANOTHER DAY IN PARADISE: Notes from Taos:
“You're one of the few who arrived and immediately experienced the spiritual imagination of the place and appreciated it in an articulate and instinctive way. What intrigues me is how many people move here and are tone deaf. I can't figure out why they are here since they might as well live in Colorado: beautiful but soulless...the chthonic spirits are absent. ‘Course sometimes a man needs relief from the resonating spirits. They can drive you mad.”
-Bill Whaley: Taos writer (GRINGO LESSONS), publisher (The Horse Fly)
This isn’t just about New Mexico, though that is where I’ve been for 20 years. Publication will be sporadic and spontaneous until I find the right groove. In the meantime, do what all the big red buttons tell you, watch the things you tell yourself, pay attention, and be true. GODDAMN BUFFALO is entirely free for now. Enjoy!
I have a “real” website, too. Check out JHFARR.COM for 900+ blog posts, photos, & contact info. (All searchable via keywords, dates, categories, and tags.) Ebooks for sale here, here, here, and here. Photos of all kinds at Smugmug make a visual history. I’m on Twitter, of course. You’re already in the right place for new book announcementz,
