superfluous beauty

Of all the grandeur in the world, of all the excess of nature, there is one place that stirs my soul like no other. Perhaps it is because Iknow it well, I feel at home there, part of me lives there and will always. I am obsessed with light on water.

trying to keep life in balance is a little like trying to keep life in balance
a continuous struggle between desire and responsiblity
passion and reason
between a rudder and a sail
but i have to admit--
i love the wind.

Spring Riot

one day I'm half naked soaking up my favorite vitamin, D

its not me, its you

its the truth...

i love the desert

it strips you of all pretention

ancient art

peace and serenity

red rocks and cactus

sand and water

marshmellow world

tahoe in winter, scene

climbing the highway 50

clinging to the side

3000 ft drop

holding breath

watching a skier plunging, extreme

off the side.

wild geese

"you do not have to be good...

whoever you are, no matter how lonely,

the world offers itself to your imagination,

calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting--

over and over announcing your place

in the family of things."

--mary oliver
