Passing Through Sedona On Way To Monumant Valley   1 comment

Sedona Snapshots (April 22, 2018) by kenne

A week ago today we began a short trip that would take us to several places we have been before, the exception being Monument Valley in the Navajo Nation. Heading north on I-10, we took I-17 north to Flagstaff out of Pheinox with a little detour over to Sedona and the Oak Creek Canyon. After a brief stop in Sedona, we began the beautiful drive on the twisting Oak Creek Canyon 89A highway.

Our next stop was Flagstaff, just long enough to top off the gas tank, before heading on the Tuba City located in the Painted Desert on the Navajo Nation, where we planned to spend the night and check out the old Tuba City Trading Post.

The Chapel at Tlaquepaque is located in the Tlaquepaque Arts and Crafts Village along the tree-lined Oak Creek. The chapel is designed after some Mexican haciendas that provided a private chapel for a visiting priests could offer mass and other services.

Five in the Afternoon

“A boy brought the white sheet
at five in the afternoon.
A frail of lime already prepared
at five in the afternoon.
The rest was death and death alone
at five in the afternoon.”

This island in the sky,

an old copper mining town

between Prescott and Sedona,

today supported by tourism,

run by old hippies —

music festivals,  

art galleries,

craft stores,

coffee houses,

restaurants —

holders

in due course

of timeless moments

in a sky-island vortex.

Capturing The Moment Becomes Sharing The Moment   9 comments

Cathedral Rock

Cathedral Rock in Sedona, Arizona — iPhone image by kenne

In the age of social media,

capturing the moment

allows the parallel universes

of past,

present, and

future

to coexist 

in the moment.

This iPhone image

of Cathedral Rock

was sent via

Facebook,

Twitter and

StumbleUpon —

Capturing the moment

has become

sharing the moment.
