SUPERIOR ARIZONA AFTER APACHE TEARS SEARCH

 

SUPERIOR ARIZONA

 

One of the most impressive rocks I’ve knocked out of a rock wall? Apache tears.

 

Just another rock until I held it up to the sun for my own solar eclipse.

 

What’s going on in there? See through rocks in Superior Arizona.

 

It may not be the center of the universe like Mesa, but Superior Arizona is happening.

If you’re lucky enough to find Apache Tears, you have many ways to clean them up.

 

Scrub them, tumble them, or soak them in beer.

 

At Porters Cafe there was one choice.

Mix a kickass lunch after sauntering the hills, and a couple of test cleaners, and you may feel like dancing.

 

Is statue dancing allowed? I’m guessing I’m not the first one.

We sat in the after glow of a mining expedition in the furthest reaches of the harsh southwest desert, about three miles from town but seemed further.

 

A woman sang Fleetwood Mac songs in a Stevie Nicks voice.

 

It made me feel like jumping for joy. The statue, too.

Superior Arizona has a feel to it, a familiar vibe, a, a, Roslyn Washington aura.

 

Porters Cafe brought it all together.

 

Here’s a town on the outskirts with history, and a future.

 

It’s a destination.

How can I tell if a town is the right kind of town for my kind? Or, would my wife like it?

 

She loved it.

 

All about the art gallery with her and what is on the local market.

Art is supposed to be fun, and the Wild Cow was all about fun.

 

How did they find Superior: Boonie LeBlanc remembered Superior after spending much time camping at the Oak Flats with his family as a child.  About five years ago, he visited and saw that there was not too much going on but decided to move into the area.  He and his husband Andre LeBlanc are happy to have found a gallery space to show and sell art work of the budding artists who are part of their Cactus Moon Foundation as well as sell donated art.

 

“Farmer” by Debbie Olson. From Wild Cow, now in private collection.

 

More important, how did we find Superior? Very inviting. Did we like the art?

 

Wrapped to go.

Time for another superior statue dance in Superior Arizona.

 

Play Landslide, Stevie, while I look through my Apache tear.
