“. . . I now find the most marvelous things in
the everyday,
the ordinary,
the common,
the simple and tangible.
For example:
one cloud floating over one mountain.”

Black Swallowtail Photo Essay– Signs of Spring by kenne (Tohono Chul, Tucson AZ, February 24, 2018) 

Desert springtime, with flowers popping up all over the place, trees leafing out, streams gushing down from the mountains. Great time of year for hiking, camping, exploring, sleeping under the new moon and the old stars. At dawn and at evening we hear the coyotes howling with excitement—mating season.

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome,
dangerous, leading to most amazing view.
May your mountains rise into and above the clouds.

But it’s all still there in my heart and soul.

The walk, the hills, the sky, the solitary pain and pleasure —

they will grow larger, sweeter, lovelier in the days to come,

like a treasure found and then, voluntarily, surrendered.

Returned to the mountains with my blessing.

It leaves a golden glowing on the mind.”
