Waterfall in a box

Today on the dog walk I saw it again... Or rather I heard it and then I saw it. It's a roar, like river rapids, which is a little disorienting when you're standing on a street corner in the city.


It was coming from a big concrete box like this one.  Inside there was a waterfall....


The "boxes" are all around the city and are part of the Salt River Project, that irrigates the region and floods people's yards this time of year....

The Salt River is why people have settled in this region for something like 1,000 years. Phoenix is not just some random spot in the desert where they decided to build a city... That would be Las Vegas.

Anyway, I started another snail but he's in a lot of uninteresting pieces right now, so I'll post some pictures later when he gets more interesting.

Recently Phoebe yelled to me, "Hey Mom! What's red and smells like blue paint?"
"Ummm... what?"
"Red Paint."
"OK."


Yesterday I painted a "Hello Kitty House".  It's monochrome, but then I added red paint.

"People are willing to take these extraordinary chances to become writers, musicians, or painters, and because of them, we have a culture. If this ever stops, our culture will die, because most of our culture, in fact, has been created by people that got paid nothing for it--people like Edgar Allan Poe, Vincent Van Gogh or Mozart."-Kurt Vonnegut
