“Wherever the army has passed, briars and thorns spring up. Years of hunger follow in the wake of a great war.”  Lao Tzu

“Drown me! Roast me! Hang me! Do whatever you please,” said Brer Rabbit. “Only please, Brer Fox, please don’t throw me into the briar patch.”  Cherokee/Slaves/Georgia Folklore

“Truths and Roses have thorns about them.” Henry David Thoreau

Photography by Joe Berentsen: Ruckel Creek

My good friend and photography colleague Joe Berentsen is enjoying exploring the Columbia River Gorge on the Oregon side (Ruckel Creek). Joe is particularly inspired, as many of us are, by those tumbling waters that create lovely waterfalls and lush vignettes. Here are a couple of examples of his work. I hope to be able to share more along the way as Joe explores the byways.

The Constant of Change…..

“The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You´re one month on in the middle of May.
But if you so much as dare to speak,
A cloud comes over the sunlit arch,
A wind comes off a frozen peak,
And you´re two months back in the middle of March.”

Robert Frost, 1934
