… into the new year and beyond … with excitement and amazement!
Having watched Dexter until 3AM Sunday, first shots of espresso at 7:20 AM, back to sleep until 10AM and more espresso the day was finally planned on the second waking. One got her patrol of the territory in and chased Sebastian out of the yard (sorry Rosie) and felt she had done her work for the day so came in and celebrated with a Salmon Tuscany meal and took up her post on the kitchen table and viewed life going by as she flickered between sleep and consciousness.
I didn’t feel much like hanging around the local area so I decided to head up to Sunset Crater and shoot trees and stuff. They have some of the most amazing tree trunks and branches up there and set in a volcanic area it has all the drama of life not far removed when you think in geologic terms. I got a couple hundred shots that I like and they will make for great stock to use in compositing. Expect more like this shot of a glimpse into the past … peering into the past, once vibrant with life and the imagery traveling for billions of years before arriving on our earths shores … the future being shaped by the now.
Another week underway and in just a few days a new year will commence … most consider the measurement to begin again, but I prefer to remain in the present and surf the continuum of life as long as I have it. A life lived to be sure, but here now and that is all that counts!
Cheers and share your joy and a smile or three.
A week of writing ahead … a story of “Love … Life … and Forever”
I saw or thought I saw the figure of a woman standing in the dim light …
“What are you writing?”
“A story of perfect love”, I answered
“Lay down your pen and live with me the story you are writing”, she said
“I am ready!” I cried, and arising, I started toward her; but there was nothing there.
