72 so far from heaven

Old Jules, pencil, 2 3/8" x 2 9/16"

I’ve started writing a description of Jules’ blog three times now.  I can’t put it into words, so instead, here is his brief bio and a teaser: 69 years old, living in the middle of nowhere in the Texas Hill Country with four cats and a dozen chickens. And the excerpt: “‘Family’ members running alongside government vehicles engaging in every form of engagement except disengagement.”  Also found are gut busting critter mishaps and a discourse on which celestial presence is responsible for cutting the coronal rift in the sun…

You just have to see it for yourself:  So Far From Heaven. I’m sure you’ll be hitting that follow button, just as I did.

This is portrait 72 of 100.
