“If public lands come under greater pressure to be opened for exploitation and use in the twenty-first century, it will be the local people, the watershed people, who will prove to be the last and possibly most effective line of defense.”  — Gary Snyder

By all means marry;
if you get a good wife,

if you get a bad one,
you’ll become a philosopher.

The Laughing Heart

your life is your life
don’t let it be clubbed into dank submission.
be on the watch.
there are ways out.
there is a light somewhere.
it may not be much light but
it beats the darkness.
be on the watch.
the gods will offer you chances.
know them.
take them.
you can’t beat death but
you can beat death in life, sometimes.
and the more often you learn to do it,
the more light there will be.
your life is your life.
know it while you have it.
you are marvelous
the gods wait to delight
in you. 

— Charles Bukowski

I look at the world around me and allow photography to become a record of my living. The process of deciding to take a photograph, what Henri Cartier-Bresson called the ‘decision moment’, the time in which the elements of movement are balanced, has become a continuing process.

As an artist I can modify perspectives before and after the moment. For Cartier-Bresson, “. . . photography is the simultaneous recognition, in a fraction of a second, of the significance of an event as well as of a precise organization of forms which give the event its proper expression.” By making use of today’s digital tools, the ‘decision moment’ becomes fluid, a ‘constant moment’.

I would not sacrifice a single living mesquite tree for
any book ever written. One square mile of living desert is
worth a hundred “great books” — and one brave deed
is worth a thousand.

Wildflowers And Bees — Nature’s Perfect Combination   2 comments

The Flower And The Bee

A beautiful yellow flower 
Resting in the meadows 
Amongst the other flowers. 
A bright yellow daffodil 
At the crest of the hill 
Watching over the roses 
Spellbindingly stole, the eyes 
Of the buzzing bee. 
He liked what he saw 
In this little dainty flower, 
Who took her beauty from the land 
And was as radiant as the sun 
Having its yellow colors too. 
The happy little bee, 
Flying drunkenly to her; 
Started to ponder – 
‘She is a beautiful flower, 
Placed high upon the hill, 
All the other bees see her, 
Would she welcome me, 
To taste of her nectar? ’ 
Then he continued to fly, 
With other bees as passersby.. 
He landed on her petals 
And he danced on her sepals 
And he tasted of her nectar.
