“‘Hear! hear!’ screamed the jay from a neighboring tree,
where I had heard a tittering for some time,
‘winter has a concentrated and nutty kernel,
if you know where to look for it.'”

Backwater Fishing — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Time is but the stream I go a-fishing in.
I drink at it; but while I drink I see
the sandy bottom and detect how shallow it is.
Its thin current slides away, but eternity remains.

— Henry David Thoreau

breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit,
and resign yourself to the influences of each.”

Sonoran Sunset-72Catalina Foothills Sunset — Image by kenne

I went to the [desert] because I wished to live deliberately,
to front only the essential facts of life,
and see if I could not learn what it had to teach,
and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived.

— Henry David Thoreau
