Art tries to create
     creates 
many possible futures
     futures
in each moment 
     moments
of existence
     existences
choosing reality
     realities 
from our experience

The Big Squeeze

Often looks are deceiving —

Wedged between two boulders

The saguaro has grown

Over several years

protected by the big squeeze.

My mountains,

Santa Catalina, one

of the Sonoran Desert’s

sky islands, presenting 

a life zone tour

of desert,

grasslands,

oat woodlands,

and pine forest

where climate diversity

is equal to a drive

from Mexico to Canada,

with panorama views

of surrounding Sky Islands —

where less becomes more.
