I like skulls. Why? Maybe because it’s interesting to see the anatomy of the skull. Maybe because in the best cases, the muscles and tissue have been consumed by someone or something else and so they’ve served a purpose in nourishing another, the next generation. Maybe because it’s a reminder that death is always there and so we should live our lives to the fullest extent possible. Maybe because I have the ability to reflect on my past and my future, as well as the metaphors of life and death, so I see the poetry of the earth recorded here. Maybe because as a scientist I see immobilized calcium and phosphorus bound in a beautiful structure, an almost mythic structure, that was once alive. Maybe because one of my favorite artists is Georgia O’Keeffe and her desert scenes with skulls freed generations of women artists from floral still life paintings, myself included. Maybe because when I see a sun bleached skull I can smell the desert and childhood adventures. #rangeandlivestock #skulls #cattle #elko #desert #range #stories #georgiaokeeffe #relection

After a full day of learning my camera and shooting I got a night photo with all the stars! (Haven’t learned how to edit yet.) But one step closer to my northern lights trip! ✨
