Imagination….

In my dream the Angel shrugged and said “If we fail this time, it will be a failure of imagination”.    And then, she gently placed the world in the palm of my hand…..                                                                                            Brian Andreas

Rose Petals at Dawn….

Early morning, it’s still. Lean forward and inhale the soft fragrance of an open rose.

“When nothing else exists from the past, after the people are dead, after the things are broken and scattered…the smell and taste of things remain poised a long time, like souls bearing resiliency, on tiny and almost impalpable drops of their essence, the immense edifice of memory.”

Marcel Proust

Pinyon Trees with a view…

“The finest quality of this stone, these plants and animals, this desert landscape is the indifference manifest to our presence, our absence, our coming, our staying or our going. Whether we live or die is a matter of absolutely no concern whatsoever to the desert.”

A Cinco de Mayo Gathering

A new hispanic mercado/food carts venue in SE Portland along Foster Rd. drew a nice gathering on a chilly, threatening evening. Live music highlighted Mexican, Central American and South American sounds. And, several young children were decked out in traditional garb and danced to an appreciative audience. A simple, pleasant evening at the new Portland Mercado.

Between two rocks & a hard place…

At this point, this young woman was about 20′ above the ground. She continued up another 30′ or so up this vertical shaft, of sorts. Her father scurried up the wall, as if nothing, and continued on much higher. I have trouble negotiating a step ladder, So, I admire free climbing.

This week, a young man fell 150′ to his death at Rocky Butte near my home. Every few years, a climber dies on the North side of Rocky Butte.

Here Portland Fire & Rescue prepare to rescue a climber stranded on the side of Rocky Butte in the dark. Also, they are always tasked with recovering the bodies of fallen climbers, who might be wedged in the rocks above the lowest point below.

C. S. Lewis on Do Gooder Tyranny

“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.”
