I may have mentioned we can get a little breezy here in the spring? Perhaps I have even mentioned the abandoned white trailer the dogs and I often visit as a place for shade and a seat on the tongue.
I ventured a slightly different route today to show the dogs an as yet un-christened rock. We were up a bit on the hill and I saw a huge metal sculpture above the tree tops. It looked like a two story wad of tin foil. This was of interest because the rolls of foil here in New Mexico are rarely that large.
We walked over to investigate.
Wind had slammed so hard into the old trailer that the entire roof had peeled off, wadded, and dropped to earth 20 feet away. the walls on one side had fallen to the ground. An area the size of a basketball court was covered with 2×4 studs and insulation. Debris was everywhere.
There sitting untouched on a table in the remains and wreckage was a statue of the Virgin Mary.
OK, the wind had blown her skirt up and she was decapitated. I nevertheless took this as a miracle.
This morning Our Lady of Total Annihilation appeared to me. The dogs saw her too.
