And now Marfa

On tuesday morning we drove from Austin to Marfa. Texas is one big state, so it was a seven hour drive. Pretty country though.
We arrived in Marfa in the late afternoon. This is our home away from home and we come here as often as we can. It is a place both geographically remote and individual in spirit, ¬†and it’s never hard to leave the rest of the world behind. And for a few days, I have. No news and virtually no contact with the outside world. Just the long lazy days of a summer that suddenly feels as endless as those of childhood.
