Time has no divisions to mark its passage,
there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets
to announce the beginning of a new month or year.
Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals
who ring bells and fire off pistols.

— Thomas Mann

Land of extremes. Land of contrasts. Land of surprises. Land of contradictions. A land that is never to be fully understood but always to be loved by sons and daughters sprung from such a diversity of origins, animated by such a diversity of motives and ideals, that generations must pass before they can ever fully understand each other. That is Arizona.

They will grow toward ecological literacy if the soil they are nurtured in is rich with experience, love, and good examples.”

Mount Lemmon Mushrooms
Appear from out of nowhere
Pushing aside leaves —

Sometimes on decaying logs
Sometimes on the sides of trees.
