I'm sure most of you reading this heard about the massive flooding along the Front Range here in Colorado. FEMA is even here, and people are still being airlifted out of several towns and cities whose bridges collapsed. Boulder was hit pretty hard in town, but much worse in the mountains, and really bad in places like Lyons, Jamestown, and Longmont. A lot of places are still closed and will be for the foreseeable future, some people still unaccounted for, and pretty much every basement in every city along the Front Range has turned into an impromptu aquarium. It was really astounding. It basically rained hard for four or five days virtually without stopping. All the creeks, sewers, streets, rivers, some dams, just became overwhelmed from the sheer quantity of water. I and my animolecules are fine. Just some water damage in my apartment, and I still haven't been able to get some of my medication because the low-income clinic shut down four days ago. I (and hundreds of other people) went down to the Boulder creek/public library area a couple of days after the peak flooding, to check out the aftermath.
These shoes cracked me up. Don't they look like a bronze sculpture?
Some animolecules are smart and wanted to avoid the mere mention of rain...
...but of course if you have a retriever, they'll drag you out in rain, flood, hail, blizzard...
I'm a painter (and writer and Spanish instructor) living in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. I studied classical art in an ARC (Art Renewal Center) school, Colorado Academy of Art, full-time for two years, in order to benefit from the rigorous atelier-style training. I am currently dedicated to exploring abstract and semi-abstract art, working in oil and also in soft pastel. I firmly believe that all human beings are creative, whether or not they have yet found an outlet for the innate creative urge, and that the creative arts are the highest form of human expression.
