Past-Present Pas de Deux

Sueva and I went to a Middle Eastern themed SCA event Saturday, which I may post about at some point--what a blast! We ate, we danced, we made merry-- and we got hennaed. The designs are fading but still visible on my far-from pampered hands. Swapping out the scraper blade for the round bale spike on the tractor today, I enjoy the visual interplay between mehndi and machinery. The rust from bolts and cotter pins mixes with snowmelt to enhance the stains and add to Saturday's effects. A little scarlet from a fresh ding adds a dash of color....
