My cousin the travel writer has a brilliant article about “The Quietest Place on Earth” in the current edition of National Geographic Traveler. It’s a beautiful piece about the Canary Islands off the coast of Africa.
It’s a really good article. Hope you read it.
Here’s another article he did that I can still find online:

Meanwhile Back at the Ranch
I got home really late Saturday night – out with BFF and posse for her 51st birthday. I was almost home when I had to just about stand my car on its nose to avoid hitting a fox that ran across the road.
We also have a pair of owls that hoot really LOUD in a tree outside the bedroom window late at night. I pretty much levitated off the bed the first time I heard them. Now I’m used to it.
I was pretty much diggin’ the wildlife Saturday night – seeing the fox, hearing the owl. I got up at about 4am to get a glass of water glanced out the front door window on my way to the kitchen.
There he stood – big old deer, eating my huge pot of prized double bloom, pink striped impatients. He ate them down to the dirt. All gone.
I’m gonna shoot me some Bambi.
