Knowing the family who purchased this home, and thus inherited this giant agave, weren't terribly fond of it at first, well, I expected it to be cut down and torn out long before now. The fact they've left it in place to finish out it's natural bloom-to-death cycle makes me very happy.
I drove by recently, expecting it to be gone. Instead I got to take these oddly tinted photos (thanks to the light) to commemorate it with.
I think they're fitting for this day. The day I've finished my year-long labor of love—the book I've been working on for Timber Press—and turned it in. Fini!
Well "fini" for now. There is the editing process ahead, and as with this entire journey I have no idea exactly what that will be like. It's been a huge adventure and learning process every step of the way!
Right now I feel very much like this agave looks. Worn out. Tired. Desiccated. But I did it!
