Proterra


Somewhere along the road, west of Winslow, Arizona. June 2009.



Crushed by a million suns 
Here the heart of you lies
(excerpt from "Proterra", by C. & R. MacDonald)



If you have not yet found a good book to read while you're wrapped in a blanket, enjoying a cup of tea and listening to the cracking logs in the fireplace, I'd recommend the following two books. They're set in the kind of places that I passed through to take the pictures you see on this blog, and places I'm gonna visit on my next American road trip...


Cormac McCarthy: "All The Pretty Horses"
One of the greatest American novels of all time.

Annie Proulx: "Close Range: Wyoming Stories"
A collection of short stories covering a broad spectrum of different moods ranging from happy to sad and from satirical to cynical, and last but not least the tale of an unconventional romance that has been dubbed the greatest American love story ever told.

Goodnight everyone!
