Suffering occurs when we want
other people to love us in the way
that we imagine we want to be loved,
and not in the way that love should manifest itself
— free and untrammeled,
guiding us with its force and driving us on.

— Paulo Coelho

One of the things I find myself doing during this pandemic is going through many thousands of photos. My hiking lately has not been in the Canyon, instead at much higher elevations. This image is one of my favorite views looking down through the Canyon.

Maiden Pools HikeTrail To Maiden Pools — Panorama by kenne

Chaste goddess, well indeed thou knowest that I

Desire to be a virgin all my life,

Nor ever wish to be man’s love or wife.

I am, thou know’st, yet of thy company,

A virgin, who loves the hunt and venery,

And to go rambling in the greenwood wild,

And not to be a wife and be with child.

— From The Canterbury Tales

This panorama was composed at one of the vistas along the Catalina Highway, looking
west over the Tucson basin during our home shopping visit to Tucson. We move to
Tucson in late June of 2010, making this image my first panorama over the city.

Patio Sunset Panorama   1 comment

Patio Sunset Panorama-72Patio Sunset Panorama (Tanuri Ridge) by kenne

Foreplay in the Mountains

Living at the edge of the mountains
Watching the clouds push up the slopes
Tangling with the peeks, leaving behind
The milk of its firm, but gentle strokes

So stimulating is the foreplay
The setting sun directs its light
Reflecting off nature’s dramatic act
Fondling each to a new height

I watch, as a distant voyeur
Yet trying to sneak a feel
In the role of a mountain man
Without going against her will

In a moment, the thrill is gone
With the setting sun’s brightness
The clouds losing its excitement
Hastened by the shadows of darkness

Now alone at the mountain’s edge
I dream of stroking the night’s way
Bringing on the demons of darkness
Desiring only to stimulate the play

or the moon goes down,
it looks like the end.
It seems like a sunset,
but really,
it is dawn.”
