I order to live fully,
it is necessary to be in constant movement
only then can each day
be different from the last.

If literature has engaged me as a project, first as a reader,
then as a writer, it is an extension of my sympathies to
other selves, other domains, other dreams, other worlds, other territories.

— Susan Sontag

(I’m currently reading Benjamin Moser’s latest book, “Sontag — Her Life and Work.)

A Fall Hike In Madera Canyon   2 comments

Madera Canyon is always a beautiful canyon in which to hike especially in the fall when the
Arizona Sycamores are in color. This SCVN Friday hike, in the Santa Rita Mountains,
provided a nice contrast to our usual hikes in the Santa Catalina Mountains.

Madera Canyon-6-72This image is looking down on Madera Canyon below some of the higher pikes in the Santa Ritas
(The highest is Mt. Wrightson on the right with an elevation of 9,453 feet.)
Our hike began down near a dried-up creek bed, then taking us up along the canyon’s edge.
What a beautiful day to be hiking with friends and nature lovers.

Don’t walk behind me… I may not lead
Walk beside me… just be my friend”

Nature is not evil. The world occasionally shrugs its shoulders,
and people get knocked off.
The earth, for geological reasons that
are well known,
is a fairly risky place to live. To be evil,
you have to have intent.
Any remarkable natural happening
in which no human will is employed
cannot be regarded as evil.

— Simon Winchester
