Greater Roadrunner On A Southwest Day   1 comment

I watch him as he ponders my presence,
only a temporary distraction from
the lizard now locked in step 
blinding into the tree bark
disposing of intricate patterns.
Soon the runner disappears 
into some unknown world,
no known direction, dissolving 
into the brink, yet native lands.

Sunset Layers untitled-0412 blogUntitled Sunset Layers by kenne

Pods and seeds unite
Underneath the circling sun
Waiting for the wind.

Flying high above
Planting seeds for tomorrow
Nature works magic.

I paint with new tools
Brushes, filters, and software
To tell my story.

Sabino Canyon Panorama- blogPanorama of Sabino Canyon Taken From Tram Road Near Stop 9 (February 16, 2010) — Image by kenne

At the time I took this panorama I had no idea the role this beautiful canyon would play in my life for the next seven years. In February of 2010, we drove to Tucson to explore our making a move from The Woodlands Texas to Tucson. Now the rest is history. (Flickr Album)

What has to be given up is not the I,
as most mystics suppose:
this I is indispensable for any relationship,
including the highest,
which always presupposes an I and You.

Seeking The Tao Of Observation   Leave a comment

Sabino Canyon Sunrise II- Art name blogThe Photographer — Image by kenne

THE PHOTOGRAPHER

The photographer (artist)
seeks to connect what
is already connected, the
past, present, and future
in a moment of existence
while being a traveler
in other people’s reality
sharing an awareness 
of the present experience. 

An awareness of the moment
with the whole being, the artist
is of the experience —
the essence of existence.
The artist desires to share
the essence, but the resulting image
is about the experience, not
of the experience — 
the Tao of observation.

In the process
of capturing an event
the photographer feels
and sees in the moment,
the Tao of an event —
the Tao that is projected
is outside the moment
hence is not the
essence of Tao.
