“You say I am repeating
Something I have said before. I shall say it again.
Shall I say it again? In order to arrive there,
To arrive where you are, to get from where you are not,
You must go by a way wherein there is no ecstasy.
In order to arrive at what you do not know
You must go by a way which is the way of ignorance.
In order to possess what you do not possess
You must go by the way of dispossession.
In order to arrive at what you are not
You must go through the way in which you are not.
And what you do not know is the only thing you know
And what you own is what you do not own
And where you are is where you are not.”

— T. S. Eliot

Hiking Ventana Canyon — Four Decembers Ago   Leave a comment

Ventana Canyon--2 blogVentana Canyon, December 12, 2010 — Image by kenne

Today I lead the SCVN Friday hike, almost to the date, my fourth December Ventana Canyon hike. As it was then, another beautiful day in the Catalina Mountains. I like the shadows created by the narrow canyon, about five miles north of where we live in Tucson.

I was able to capture a few photos, but the lead position limits the time I would like to have for taking photos — will share some in a later posting.
