Moving briskly on the trail
Dewdrops on dried weeds.

Floating Leaves

A light rain falls on leaves
Floating on the shallow water
Above the Sabino Creek dam
On a gray sky January day
Forgetfull of all except the silence.

Life As We Know It Is Only A Little Parenthesis In Eternity   Leave a comment

Stopping along the way . . .

Agua Caliente-9231 blogWhen a saguaro cactus dies and falls, much of it is into the environment. The old woodpecker nest holes remain because of the heavily lignized calous that was produced by the plant in response to the tissue damage. (The white crown in these images by kenne.)

“We are travelers on a cosmic journey,
stardust,swirling and dancing
in the eddies and whirlpools of infinity.
Life is eternal.
We have stopped for a moment
to encounter each other,
to meet,
to love,
to share.
This is a precious moment.
It is a little parenthesis in eternity.” 

― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist

Driving from Kingman, Arizona on old Route 66 will take you on a scenic route through the Black Mountains. Cool Springs is a classic rest stop along the old highway, no longer a gas station, just a flash-back façade to a romanticized time during the mid-20th-century.

Cool Springs owes its existence to Route 66, as old as the highway. “Route 66 is the most celebrated of the old US highways, and the Cool Springs area is perhaps the most spectacular and unique stretch of the Mother Road to be found anywhere between Chicago and Santa Monica; a ‘must-see’ for the adventuresome automobile enthusiast or historian.” Click here to read more about the history of Cool Springs.

It was a pleasant surprise to find Cool Springs — It’s cool!
