Ceraunics: "a thunderbolt, thunder and lightning [that which branch of physics which deals with heat and electricity, and their phenomena].
Here in the southwestern section of New Mexico there is a long term art installation called, "The Lightning Field". Conceptualized and created by artist, Walter De Maria. I've never seen it, but I know it's pretty darned cool. These rods are all the same size and placed precisely in the ground at precises distances from each other. All meant to maximize their ability to attack lightning. And, those who partake in ceraunics.
To get there, you need to book a trip there. It involves meeting up with the host of a B & B who has been given permission and access to run this form of commerce. From the agreed upon meeting place, the host then takes you to the B & B-I've heard that you are blindfolded so that you do not know how to get thee on your own. I suppose they confiscate your cell phones too since all of the smartphones have GPS trackers in them. Anyway, you stay overnight and they feed you well and then the next day you get taken out to the lightning filed and I think they let you walk around in it. I've met someone who has done this and they said it was well worth the experience. It doesn't cost gobs of money, but you do have to plan ahead.
I say, add this to your 'bucket' list!
No explanation needed for chicken-we all know what that is! But, I thought you'd enjoy something fun and whimsical to look at!
This is more like cloud nine! It's odd to be above the clouds-and on a flight to Hawaii is when I usually get this kind of view since we are high enough (I head out on August 6th and will be on Molokai from the 8th-15th, so although I will post to ABC, it will be later in the day due to the time difference and I'm not sure I'll be able to go visit everyone).
So, stay cool. Stay calm. Chew on cut up cucumbers. Clap crazily and constantly. AND...
C U later!
