Five O'Clock Somewhere

Welcome to Five O'Clock Somewhere, where it doesn't matter what time zone you're in; it's five o'clock somewhere. We'll look at rural life, especially as it happens in Rio Arriba County, New Mexico, cats, sailing (particularly Etchells racing yachts), and bits of grammar and Victorian poetry.

The Black Magic snowflake

Not like any other

I have a colleague, Connie, who has a special talent: She makes snowflakes. She will start with a photo or some other image, and she will create a custom snowflake based on that image. Some of her creations are astonishingly intricate. It's appropriate that the area she lives in is called Tijeras.

Some time ago, I gave her a picture of Black Magic under sail. Today, she gave me her creation based on that picture. Around the perimeter of the snowflake are silhouettes of the sails and hull of the boat, with watery waves beneath, and little fishies swimming below. It's delightful.
