return to the desert……….

“One mile farther and I come to a second grave beside the road, nameless like the other, marked only with the dull blue-black stones of the badlands. I do not pause this time. The more often you stop the more difficult it is to continue. Stop too long and they cover you with rocks.”   Edward Abbey, Beyond the Wall

Edward Abbey died on March 14, 1989 due to complications from surgery. He was buried as he had requested: in a sleeping bag – no embalming fluid, no casket. His body was secretly interred in an unmarked grave in southern Arizona.

For now, the desert for me and those I care about, is a place of renewal, rebirth, for clarity in life.

life renewed…

“Nothing can dwindle to nothing, as Nature restores one thing from the stuff of another, nor does she allow a birth, without a corresponding death.”

Titus Lucretius Carus (c. 99 BC – c. 55 BC) was a Roman poet and philosopher. His only known work is the epic philosophical poem De rerum natura about the tenets and philosophy of Epicureanism, and which is usually translated into English as On the Nature of Things.

Old Cenntennial Mill

The Cenntennial Mills operated from 1910 until 2000. The old mill is scheduled for demolition to make way for a waterfront project adjacent to the Willamette River, in Portland, Oregon. However, apparently the demolition of the aged facility might be problematic in the year ahead.

Contrast & reflection…

Backlit Fir Tree…

A beautiful sunset sky from Rocky Butte in NE Portland. I nice 360 view of the skyline often affords beautiful contrasts of sun, moon, clouds, trees and distant vistas around Portland.
