Greater Roadrunner On A Southwest Day   1 comment

I watch him as he ponders my presence,
only a temporary distraction from
the lizard now locked in step 
blinding into the tree bark
disposing of intricate patterns.
Soon the runner disappears 
into some unknown world,
no known direction, dissolving 
into the brink, yet native lands.

Sabino Canyon Panorama- blogPanorama of Sabino Canyon Taken From Tram Road Near Stop 9 (February 16, 2010) — Image by kenne

At the time I took this panorama I had no idea the role this beautiful canyon would play in my life for the next seven years. In February of 2010, we drove to Tucson to explore our making a move from The Woodlands Texas to Tucson. Now the rest is history. (Flickr Album)

Here’s Looking At You   4 comments

What has to be given up is not the I,
as most mystics suppose:
this I is indispensable for any relationship,
including the highest,
which always presupposes an I and You.

Seeking The Tao Of Observation   Leave a comment

Sabino Canyon Sunrise II- Art name blogThe Photographer — Image by kenne

THE PHOTOGRAPHER

The photographer (artist)
seeks to connect what
is already connected, the
past, present, and future
in a moment of existence
while being a traveler
in other people’s reality
sharing an awareness 
of the present experience. 

An awareness of the moment
with the whole being, the artist
is of the experience —
the essence of existence.
The artist desires to share
the essence, but the resulting image
is about the experience, not
of the experience — 
the Tao of observation.

In the process
of capturing an event
the photographer feels
and sees in the moment,
the Tao of an event —
the Tao that is projected
is outside the moment
hence is not the
essence of Tao.

“There are times in this world when things just line up
when everything is just about perfect.
A child’s laugh, a desert sunset and this morning.
It just couldn’t have been better,” 

said Cassini spacecraft program manager Earl Maize as the spacecraft tumbled out of control while plummeting more than 76,000 mph into Saturn.

“Farewell, faithful explorer.”

Brother, you are gone,
that which was earth
gone back to earth,
that which was human
scattered like rain
into the darkened
wild eyes of herbs.

A late summer bloomer
You know it’s September days
When the barrel cactus blooms.
