I prefer the original name, Boulder Dam. Originally known as Boulder Dam from 1933,
it was officially renamed Hoover Dam for President Herbert Hoover by a joint resolution
of Congress in 1947.

Boulder Dam Viewed from the Arizona Side (November 5, 2020) — Panorama by kenne

Most of the time, when we drive to Las Vegas from Tucson, we pass by the dam.
The last time we stopped, we drove the two-lane road on top of the dam on our way back
to Houston in 2007. The Mike O’Callaghan–Pat Tillman Memorial Bridge was under
construction and was not completed until 2010. The drive across the Boulder Dam
would take quite a while, depending on the volume of traffic.

Currently, the Lake Mead water level is 147.41 feet below the full pool of 1,229.00,
40% of its full capacity. The Colorado River, which supplies Nevada,
Arizona and California, most of its water, has long been chronically overused
and has dwindled during two decades of mostly dry years. The drought has been
worsened by higher temperatures unleashed by climate change.

“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.”

–from Texts for Nothing by Samuel Beckett

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.
