England or California in the spring? Another photo of O-town, West Yorkshire, looking suspiciously like a town in Southern California. There are windmills in the upper right corner. The brown, oak-speckled hills give me chills. I am not sure that the Os originated in this town or if its just a coincidence with names but the internet is vague on the subject. Maybe our Native American brethren are right, and we are connected to the land. Or is the land stuck to us?
I was born a few miles from this spot. Notice the brown hills, the windmills (I predate the windmills) and the scrubby oaks in the distance. I spent the first five years of my life there and its vistas are seared into my memory-- from the bottomless sky, the dry, dusty winds, the oaks, the joshua trees, and the apple orchards.
