Sedona Area Panorama (Red Rock Country) — Photo-Artistry by kenne

Our continual mistake is that we do not

concentrate upon the present day, the

actual hour, of our life: we live in the past

or in the future; we are continually expecting

the coming of some special moment when

our life will unfold itself in its full significance.

And we do not notice that life is flowing life

water through our fingers.

— Father Alexander Elchaninov

Capitol Reef National Park Panorama — Image by kenne

“Capitol Reef National Park is in Utah’s south-central desert. It surrounds a long wrinkle in the earth known as the Waterpocket Fold, with layers of golden sandstone, canyons and striking rock formations. Among the park’s sights are the Chimney Rock pillar, the Hickman Bridge arch, and Capitol Reef, known for its white sandstone domes. In the north are the towering monoliths of Cathedral Valley.” ― Google

“What one thinks of any region,
while traveling through,

is the result of at least three things:
what one knows,
what one imagines,
and how one is disposed.”

— Barry Lopez

Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Classes   Leave a comment

“Work Is The Curse Of The Drinking Classes”

Oscar Wilde is credited with the line, ‘Work is the curse of the drinking classes’.
It is a play on the phrase ‘drink is the curse of the working classes’
where the posh people would say that people are poor because they ‘indulge’ too much,
forgetting at the same time that the aristocracy and self-righteous middle classes
drank and ate far too much but of course, had the money to do it.

A November Hike To Hutch’s Pool   2 comments

Fall Colors Along Sabino Creek Hiking to Hutch’s Pool — Panorama by kenne

One of my favorite hikes is to Hutch’s Pool. In the past, the Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN)
would guide a fall and spring hike, each hike having a many as 15 hikers.
However, like so many things, not this fall because of the pandemic.
The trail is open, but not for groups.

I bear many scars,

but I also carry with me moments

that would not have happened

if I had not dared 

to go beyond my limits.

Zion Canyon Panorama — B&W Image by kenne

Mighty and dreadful are your tall columns here,

(through soul and love put you in deep shade)

for you outnumber man and outscore even life itself,

and you are roughly tied with God and, strangely, eyes.
