Lincoln art-72Old Town Lincoln, Alabama — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Most streets in Lincoln
were paved in the late ’40s
turning into gravel and clay
just outside Lincoln Station.

I was surprised to see
some of the buildings
still standing fifty years
after leaving this small town.

A place an adventurist kid
could take risks and survive —
a village by any other name
in northeast Alabama.

“There was a young man who said though,
it seems that I know that I know,
but what I would like to see is the I that knows me
when I know that I know that I know.”

Nature is disordered, powerful, and chaotic, and through fear of the chaos, we impose
a system on it. We abhor complexity and seek to simplify things whenever we can by
whatever means we have at hand. We need to have an overall explanation of what the
universe is and how it functions. In order to achieve this overall view, we develop
explanatory theories, that will give structure to natural phenomena: we classify nature
into a coherent system, which appears to do what we say it does.

is constantly being transformed

because the Earth is alive and has a Soul.

— Photo-Artistry by kenne

Here comes the sun
birders listen and watch
as birds chilled by
desert winter night
seek high perches
in the sunlight.

When I take up
my palette (Nikon)
I call on the light
bringing color and
life to the canyon
sometimes blinding.

Solitude with style
with endless silence
where flite interrupts
the viewer’s sight
their gestures
demonstrate the loss.
