“The people feel and look the same,
like they’ve settled here even though
they know there’s something more-
something better-
just beyond where they are.

Through the branches
hesitant,
went a maiden
who was life.
Through the branches
hesitant,
she caught the day’s reflection
in  a little mirror:
the glow of her limpid brow.
Through   the branches
hesitant.
Over the shadows
she went astray,
weeping dewdrops,
the captive of time.
Through the branches
hesitant.

“Captive” by Federico Garcia Lorca

“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

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.
