Rough Passage

The Llano stirs to life. Her thorny denizens awaken. Stick figures of Cane Cholla on the rolling prairie of Eastern New Mexico prepare for their spring bloom. The chain link structure of their stems and branches thickens. The return of "lifeblood" straightens spine-loaded arms. They implore the Heavens for rain. The renewed vigor of native cacti creates rough passage ways for Cooper on his romps across the prairie. Caution tempers his usual wild abandon. Removing cactus spikes becomes a daily ritual.
