“What counts is to be in the world, the posture is immaterial, so long as one is on earth.
To breathe is all that is required, there is no obligation to ramble, or receive company,
you may even believe yourself dead on condition you make no bones about it,
what more liberal regimen could be imagined, I don’t know, I don’t imagine.
No pomt under such circumstances in saying I am somewhere else, someone else,
such as I am I have all I need to hand, for to do what, I don’t know, all I have to do,
there I am on my own again at last, what a relief that must be. Yes, there are moments,
like this moment, when I seem almost restored to the feasible. Then it goes, all goes,
and I’m far again, with a far story again, I wait for me afar for my story to begin, to end,
and again this voice cannot be mine. That’s where I’d go, if I could go,
that’s who I’d be, if I could be.”

Dasein

For the moment
a tolerable relationship
is established
by being there — Dasein.

It is the moment
the camera captures
and actualized in art
through thought and expression.

The form of the image
is empty without
the spirit that lives in it —
art projects the spirit.

Seeking suitable form never ends
with and achievement —
each moment formulates new meaning,
a process not lost in each formation.

What appears in the moment
only asks the questions,
the process provides the answers
by the free spirit seeking form.

The real image
is receptive to reality,
the actualized image
seeks a more suitable form.

Driving

miles of asphalt highway
straight yellow and white lines
seemingly divides the golden range
forming a grid with unseen highways
surrounded by a labyrinth of mountains.

The Loneliest Highway In America — Photo Essay I   4 comments

US Hwy 50 has the reputation of being the “Loneliest Highway in America, especially between the cities Ely and Reno in Nevada. On August 23rd we left Laughlin, Nevada on our way to Great Basin National Park and Ely. Once exiting I-15 north of Las Vegas on to US Hwy 93, we learned that this stretch of highway is also the loneliest highway, which could probably be said of most highways in Nevada. Here are a few of the images taken along one of the loneliest highways.

Escaping From The Vegas Strip   1 comment

I came to the canyon seeking an escape

from the manmade strip of bright lights.

Decade old Scenic wildfire still fenced-off.

Vegas influenced exhibits at the visitors

center providing impressive vistas of

the northern Mojave Desert.

Hiking the rocks and desert floor

ending the day on the 13 mile Scenic Drive.

Collecting my winning in nature’s house

the freeway takes me back 

to where the house rules,

I lose.
