Distorting Reality   Leave a comment

SCVN Nature Walk 08-08-12Computer Art by kenne

Captured,
what is real
in the mind’s eye.

Distorted,
to better catch
another’s eye.

Created,
a new reality
brought forth.

Changed,
no longer just a
pretty photograph.

Hope On The Move   Leave a comment

HopeComming To Texas blogComputer Art by kenne

In August of 2011, I created this artwork from a photo daughter Kate took the first time they left Ft. Collins. At that time they were moving back to Texas, but the stay didn’t last long before they moved back to Ft. Collins. 

When they made a move back to Texas, I did a blog posting, “Hope is Coming to Texas.” Hope is now on the move again from Ft. Collins but this time to New Hampshire. The journey begins today, and once again they will see wind turbines. 

The wind turbines keep on turning and Kate, like me keep chasing them like Don Quixote — “The truth may be stretched thin, but it never breaks, and it always surfaces above lies, as oil floats on water.” 

In the posting six years ago I shared the following poem. Since I haven’t yet written one on Kate and family’s latest move, this one will have to suffice.

Windmills of Hope

Arriving in Texas 
where pickups are still king

Yellow buses grazing 
under a cotton-ball sky

Extreme traffic on the right
sensible on the left

Just remember
I ain’t your dude

You can’t buy me with
a “Two-Step” lottery card

Make it a beer or two
at the old saloon

Times are different
so continue lying to me

Time has no divisions to mark its passage,
there is never a thunder-storm or blare of trumpets
to announce the beginning of a new month or year.
Even when a new century begins it is only we mortals
who ring bells and fire off pistols.

Fellow Naturalist David Dean pointed out this Aspen Sunflower at Marshell Gulch on Mt. Lemmon last Friday. It can be found in ponderosa pine forests and is best identified by each leaf has five prominent veins. Otherwise, it can easily be mistaken for other yellow mountains wildflowers. 

The monsoon rains are bringing out the best of summer in the desert.
