I saw you on my morning walk.

Stopping,

I Thought such a little guy

to have such a big blossom.

Impressed,

I decided to take you with me.

Now,

you are always with me.

The other morning we counted over 250 turkey vultures
leaving the Tanque Verde Wash just south of our community.
This time of year hundreds of turkey vultures spend the night in trees along the wash.

Morning Cactus FlowerCactus Flower — Photo-Artistry by kenne

“I feel that a real living form is the natural result
of the individual’s effort to create the living thing
out of the adventure of his spirit into the unknown —
it has where experienced something — felt something —
it has not understood — and from that experience
comes the desire to make the unknown — known —

Making the unknown — known — in terms of one’s medium
is all-absorbing — if you stop to think of the form — as form
you are lost — The artist’s form must be inevitable —
You mustn’t think you won’t succeed –“

— Georgia O’Keeffe in a letter to Sherwood Anderson, 1923

Seeing an object

Increasing the light

Darkening the background

Changing the color

Distorting the shape

Adjusting the ratio

Introducing a bias

Creating a perception

Making a judgment

Forming a reality

Sharing the existence

 Becoming an illusion

Arizona’s state flower, the saguaro blossom, has a strong overripe melons smell, but I’m not going to get close enough to check it out — will leave that to the experts. Like a lot of cactus flowers, they are short-lived, blooming at night and often closed within 24 hours. During the night the flowers are pollinated by the lesser long-nosed bat and the Mexican long-tongued bat. During the daytime the flowers are pollinated by bees and birds such as the white-winged dove.
