Jabberwocky Moon Over the Tumtum Tree — Abstract Art by kenne

Jabberwocky

 
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.
 
“Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
      The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
      The frumious Bandersnatch!”
 
He took his vorpal sword in hand;
      Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree
      And stood awhile in thought.
 
And, as in uffish thought he stood,
      The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
      And burbled as it came!
 
One, two! One, two! And through and through
      The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
      He went galumphing back.
 
“And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
      Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!”
      He chortled in his joy.
 
’Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
      Did gyre and gimble in the wabe:
All mimsy were the borogoves,
      And the mome raths outgrabe.

Potted Lemon Tree   1 comment

Patio Lemon Tree — Image by kenne

We have had a potted Meyer lemon plant on our patio for several years.
We fertilize and water it regularly. The record-setting desert heat this year 
has been rough on our small plant. Some of the lemons formed splits in the surface.
This is the first year we have experienced the splitting. In addition to the hotter
than normal temperatures, we have had a little over two inches of rain,
which is about four inches less than normal for this time of year.

This year we still have 15 lemons on the plant, which is not a lot for this plant.
A couple years back we harvested 55 lemons.

Near Hutch’s Pool in the Santa Catalina Mountains (11/18/11) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

For what is the moon, that it haunts us,
this impudent companion immigrated
from the system’s less fortunate margins,
the realm of dust collected in orbs?

— from the poem Half Moon, Small Cloud by John Updike

“In those vernal seasons of the year when the air is calm and pleasant,
it were an injury and sullenness against nature not to go out and see her riches,
and partake in her rejoicing with heaven and earth.”

Becoming is Superior to Being

My mountains,

Santa Catalina, one

of the Sonoran Desert’s

sky islands, presenting 

a life zone tour

of desert,

grasslands,

oat woodlands,

and pine forest

where climate diversity

is equal to a drive

from Mexico to Canada,

with panorama views

of surrounding Sky Islands —

where less becomes more.

Death On A Sabino Canyon Trail — Image by kenne

We name time when we say:

every thing has its time.

This means:

everything which actually is,

every being comes and goes at the right time

and remains for a time during the time allotted to it.

Every thing has its time.

— Martin Heidegger

What is a fish without a river?

What is a bird without a tree to nest in?

What is an Endangered Species Act without

any enforcement mechanism to ensure

their habitat is protected? It is nothing.

Becoming is Superior to Being

Fritillary Butterfly (1 of 1) Grunge Art blogGrunge Art Butterfly by kenne

All reality
involves the active control
of our point of view,
which we choose as reality.

Thus,
if reality is what we think is actual
can we truly comprehend reality?
Is not all reality virtual?

The Two-tailed Swallowtail is Arizona’s State Butterfly — Image by kenne

“The adult butterfly (also commonly called two-tailed tiger swallowtail) has yellow
to orangish-yellow wings edged thickly with black. Each wing has 4 almost parallel stripes

(the innermost stripe is the longest, while the outermost two may simply be bars).
The hindmost part of each wing has a curved row of blue patches and below the blue
are several bars or spots of orange. Two tails extend from the rear of the hind wing,
with the innermost tail considerably shorter.”

So Far From Heaven

Jack wrote this on November 19, 2005:

Morning blogsters:

Today marks an event I never expected to see.

That old star that’s about to light things up is going to shake its head and shrug when it looks down and sees there I am again, come spang around it one more time.

Back in the late 1970s I had occasion to spend some time looking around nursing homes.  I managed to do it enough times and look them over closely enough to convince myself that we Americans haven’t kept our eye on the ball when it comes to living and being alive.

The people in those nursing homes are alive, but they aren’t overjoyed about it, and the life they’re living only has in common with actual life that the bodies and food are warm.  The caretakers roll them back and forth or they hobble between television sets, meals, games…
