Cut Saguaro Ten Years Out   3 comments

I took this image in September 2011 while on my first Sabino Canyon Volunteer Naturalists (SCVN) nature walk. 
I was so appalled that someone cut off the top of this young (probably 35-40 years old) saguaro cactus.

Sadly, over the years, I have frequently seen this type of vandalism.

the organization of the entire tapestry.

Little Cactus On Mt. Lemmon   Leave a comment

Little Cactus On Mt. Lemmon — Photo-Artistry by kenne

The most visible creators I know of are
those artists whose medium is life itself.
The ones who express the inexpressible —
without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar.
They neither paint nor sculpt — their
medium is being. Whatever their presence
touches has increased life. They see and
don’t have to draw. They are the artists of
being alive.

— J. Stone
