Thank you, Cassini

As much as I love spaceships, UFOs, blankets of stars, shooting stars, sparkly planets, the milky way and moons, I am not a true space nerd. I did have a climbing partner who went to work for Space X, have a brother who works on power supplies for rockets that take satellites into space, and my dad has a badass telescope that he brought to Gooseberry Mesa once, carefully cradled in the backseat of his truck. We saw the rings

Weekend Cocktail — Red Geisha variation

Variation on the Red Geisha Cocktails

Y’all! Strawberries are back in the house. I’m not a fan of the super fruity, sweet cocktail and this is not that. There is enough berry to have flavor, but the lime and ginger keep it edgy.

I wasn’t gifted many kiwis, but they always seemed very special.

Holy Shit, Las Vegas

MTB Moses parting the road.

I could see a strip of brilliant orange and pink sunrise through the concrete supports of the airport parking garage. The Lyft driver pulled up in a white chevy Impala. “I drove a limo in Vegas for 18 years. I’ve met celebrities…” he trailed off. Pause. “Do you want to hear about them?” Coffee is the only thing I want to hear about, but sure, let’s hear the claim to fame. He pulled out a picture of him and Stevie
