Wisdom Of The Heart   3 comments

San Carlos -- Joy & kenne Sunset (1 of 2)-72Wisdom Of The Heart (Kenne and Joy On The Beach in San Carlos, Sonora)

“The wisdom of the heart having no concern
with erection or demolition of theories any
more than with the defense of prejudices,
has no random words at its command.
The words it pronounces have the value of
acts of integrity, tolerance, and compassion.”

— from Nostromo by Joseph Conrad

Puerto Penasco Beach--Edit-1-blogPuerto Peñasco Sunrise — Image by kenne

In an October 10th entry, I posted a photo-artistry piece of this image. I thought I would share the original image taken during an early morning walk along the beach near the El Pinacate Biosphere Reserve in Sonora, Mexico five years ago.


Walking takes longer… than any other known form of locomotion except crawling.
Thus it stretches time and prolongs life. Life is already too short to waste on speed.

Beach at Rocky Point blogThe beach along the northern edge of the Sea of Cortez (February 12, 2018) — Panorama by kenne

The sun has dissolved
behind the clouds 
as the wind 
stirs up the sand
and chills the spirit.

We have just arrived
yet it seems
like time to go.
There will be time
tomorrow to watch
morning come,
listening to the
song of sunrise.

In a park somewhere is Sonora, as we were returning to Tucson from several days in Alamos, I captured a photo as Michael, Alex and Petie set in the midday sun waiting for the motorcoach to be gassed up. I later layered in a guitar creating this Photoshop image. These guys were an important part of our trip to Alamoa, Sonora.

Mi Pueblo Alamos — Computer Painting   4 comments

Street (1 of 1)_painting blogMi Pueblo Alamos– Computer Painting by kenne

Swish, swish, swish it’s a steady beat
In the early morn when they sweep the streets
Roosters crow and burros bray
Welcoming you to another day

And the sound of music fills the air
Lifting the spirits of those who dare
To just enjoy being in this place
Where life moves at a slower pace

The days go by with not much worry
You can take life easy or be in a hurry
It’s your choice, it’s your wish
But I like it here just as it is!

The Morning Is Bright   2 comments

Alamos Street (1 of 1)_painting II blogThe Morning is Bright — Computer Painting by kenne

The morning is bright,

listen to soft voices

full of light and gentle.

It is thoughtfulness

of eternal morning

full of secrets captive

in each heart and soul.

With the morning sun

our cares pass as

for a moment we

become more childlike

dripping memories

in the fountain of life.

Cardón Cactus In Shades of Blue   4 comments

Sunset at Guaymas (1 of 1 blog)Cardón Cactus in Shades of Blue (Guaymas, Sonora on the Sea of Cortez, January 24, 2016) — Image by kenne

“[…] it is a strange thing that most of the feeling we call religious, most of the mystical outcrying which is one of the most prized and used and desired reactions of our species, is really the understanding and the attempt to say that man is related to the whole thing, related inextricably to all reality, known and unknowable. This is a simple thing to say, but the profound feeling of it made a Jesus, a St. Augustine, a St. Francis, a Roger Bacon, a Charles Darwin, and an Einstein. Each of them in his own tempo and with his own voice discovered and reaffirmed with astonishment the knowledge that all things are one thing and that one thing is all things—plankton, a shimmering phosphorescence on the sea and the spinning planets and an expanding universe, all bound together by the elastic string of time. It is advisable to look from the tide pool to the stars and then back to the tide pool again.”

― John Steinbeck, The Log from the Sea of Cortez
