The Twisted Trees of Slope Point, New Zealand
Slope Point is at the southernmost point of the South Island of New Zealand. The air streams loop the ocean, unobstructed for 2000 miles, until they reach Slope Point causing incredibly strong winds. In fact, the winds are so strong and persistent here that they perpetually warp and twist the trees into these crooked, wind-swept shapes.
Slope Point is generally uninhabited, except for the herds of sheep that graze the land. There are no roads leading here, however backpackers regularly make the short 20-minute walk to see the fascinating tree formations that only Mother Nature could create. However there is no public access during the lambing season from September to November.
not sure what song is making me cry here, but it’s probably the bed song. happens about 1 out of 4 times.

i want to
sit in a bar, dark,
with poets drinking beer.
lovesad’ll do that it
gets you up gets you movin’ i
haven’t written a word in
six weeks and now my
brain’s reeling in fat ones they’re
written before i can pick up
a pen puts you on a bus like
sending you off to camp and
you wake up in arizona makes you
feel righteous drinking liquor in
a room with no one else like my momma
always warned first sign of an
alcoholic got you poppin’ chocolate too,
you need it, some lovestarved hormone
it’s replacing, this is science.
lovesad’s got you nervous changes
coffee to blood makes you jesus
lovesad’s got you singing
smiths songs got you feeling
ghost lips on your neck got you
tugging at your hair like it’s
hiding all the answers makes you
hate all your friends for being
nice to you it’s twisting all
your insides welding
smoke chains to your lips
making sleep a precious fossil and
three times as rare.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Be careful out there, guys! Depending on where you are, the weather is changing rapidly and it’s been kind of a doozy for riding. In the Pacific Northwest for the last couple weeks you could ride your bike down to meet some friends at a restaurant and it’ll have been sunny and 75° fahrenheit (~23.9° celsius) all day- you’ll walk out an hour and a half later and it’ll be pouring buckets with thunder and lightning!
A 60 y/o motorcyclist was struck by lightning this morning around 9:30a on the I5 freeway in Chehalis, Washington. The amazing part is that the rider is mostly okay. There was some damage to his helmet (pictures following).
