“What counts is to be in the world, the posture is immaterial, so long as one is on earth.
To breathe is all that is required, there is no obligation to ramble, or receive company,
you may even believe yourself dead on condition you make no bones about it,
what more liberal regimen could be imagined, I don’t know, I don’t imagine.
No pomt under such circumstances in saying I am somewhere else, someone else,
such as I am I have all I need to hand, for to do what, I don’t know, all I have to do,
there I am on my own again at last, what a relief that must be. Yes, there are moments,
like this moment, when I seem almost restored to the feasible. Then it goes, all goes,
and I’m far again, with a far story again, I wait for me afar for my story to begin, to end,
and again this voice cannot be mine. That’s where I’d go, if I could go,
that’s who I’d be, if I could be.”

–from Texts for Nothing by Samuel Beckett

Driving

miles of asphalt highway
straight yellow and white lines
seemingly divides the golden range
forming a grid with unseen highways
surrounded by a labyrinth of mountains.

Hotel Nevada Grunge blogHotel Nevada and Gambling Hall in Ely, Nevada — Grunge Art by kenne

Hotel Nevada
and Gambling Hall,

a silver-lining of old
where money and love

were won and loss
and still today

the pain and hurt
remains the same.

You too can drive
the loneliest highway

experiencing the old west
in the place and time of another.

The Loneliest Highway In America — Photo Essay I   4 comments

US Hwy 50 has the reputation of being the “Loneliest Highway in America, especially between the cities Ely and Reno in Nevada. On August 23rd we left Laughlin, Nevada on our way to Great Basin National Park and Ely. Once exiting I-15 north of Las Vegas on to US Hwy 93, we learned that this stretch of highway is also the loneliest highway, which could probably be said of most highways in Nevada. Here are a few of the images taken along one of the loneliest highways.
