the sun has got his tongue out

La Posada, Winslow, as I've noted before, is an extraordinarily good place to stay between Los Angeles and Santa Fe - quite apart from the allure of the restored Harvey House, and the trains that pass through this station all the time, and owner Tina Mion's own quirky and very striking art work, there are always plenty of other things to look at.   I was sitting out in the sunken garden this morning, among the hollyhocks and roses, trying to concentrate on writing graduate reports - and suddenly saw the real sun striking its big bronzed cheerful counterpart, making one wonder whether it was about to speak, or swallow one of the all too numerous (atypically so) flies that were around this morning, or just, simply, mock a passing guest.
