Fritillary Butterfly (1 of 1) Grunge Art blogMexican Fritillary Butterfly — Photo Artistry by kenne

I’ve watched you now a full half-hour;
Self-poised upon that yellow flower
And, little Butterfly!  Indeed
I know not if you sleep or feed.
How motionless! – not frozen seas
More motionless! and then
What joy awaits you, when the breeze
Hath found you out among the trees,
And calls you forth again!

~William Wordsworth, “To a Butterfly”

Windy Point at the 6,000′ point along the highway up to Mt. Lemmon (9,200′) provides some of best views of the Tucson basin. With the monsoon season finally starting, this image shows how dynamic the clouds can be.

“What I Have Learned So Far”   Leave a comment

Rose-1955 art blogDigital Image by kenne

Meditation is old and honorable, so why should I
not sit, every morning of my life, on the hillside,
looking into the shining world? Because, properly
attended to, delight, as well as havoc, is suggestion.
Can one be passionate about the just, the
ideal, the sublime, and the holy, and yet commit
to no labor in its cause? I don’t think so.

The first of many sunsets I have captured from our Tanuri Ridge patio.

Sunset # ***

How do you describe a sunset

when they’re all beautiful?

Yet, they are all different

and deserving of expression.

Try as I may,

words become redundant,

depleted of feeling,

left only with the silence

of nature’s best

at the end of the day —

Cigar Bar — Digital Painting   Leave a comment

Cigar Bar photo-8_Digital Painting blogCigar Bar — Digital Painting by kenne

Good music,
a good cigar and
good bourbon —
young people
on the edge.

Growing and
changing with
certain weaknesses
boldly seeking love
without responsibilities.
