you are but a sorry traveler on this earth.”

The mountain seems no more a soulless thing,
But rather as a shape of ancient fear,
In darkness and the winds of Chaos born
Amid the lordless heavens’ thundering–
A Presence crouched, enormous and austere,
Before whose feet the mighty waters mourn.

— from Night On the Mountain By George Sterling

Tom's Nature-up-close Photography and Mindfulness Blog

Silence is not an achievement that is the result of your reaction;  true silence is when conflict ends.  

Lucid, insightful wisdom doesn’t take time… but sequential, symbolic thought does.

Compassion isn’t the left arm hating the right arm and thinking it is separate.

John Lennon was right:   “Living is easy with eyes closed… misunderstanding all you see.”

Each of us is responsible for getting oneself and the world right.  Oneself includes — and is — the world.

Don’t think with a prefabricated mind, with a handmedown, archaic mentality; look at things beyond the ways you were taught.

Patio Sunset-Edit-2-art-blog-2September Sunset — Photo-Artistry by kenne

I wanted a good place in the foothills
To have a drink as the sun goes down.
Light breezes move silver-green olive leaves —
I watch swirling clouds circle the sun.
How did I make it here?
My heart just pushed me here.
If your heart was like mine
You’d put down the book and be here.

SCVN Pima Canyon Hike -- 01-06012_20120106_1192 Hikers In Morning Sun-II-Art-3-blog-2Hikers — Photo-Artistry by kenne

As aging hikers
We walk the trails
Under the desert skies
Where nature welcomes
And challenges us
In our active desire
To remain forever young.

Come with me to Blackett’s Ridge
To hike a rocky switch-back trail.
A deep gorge designates the end
Overlooking converging canyons. 
White clouds hang from a blue sky.
Now we wait for the sun to go down
When we will return to the trailhead
Under the light of the harvest moon.
