Santa Lucía Hill

"Romantic ruins climbed viewing monuments scraping a modern Chilean sky."

Truck Heaven

 Truck heaven, memories kept vivid in visions of sentinels past, memories of learning and elders gone by.  My youth is here. Still.

Shelly Williams

Where Josephine Slept

"Like many stories, the saga of Chateau des Milandes and Josephine Baker is joyful and sorrowful, filled with love and loss.  But, like most good stories, it is also one of survival, perseverance, and purpose."

Dordogne Dreams | These Old Stones

“How old is it? How can this be measured? Centuries? Lives? Births? Deaths? Tears? Smiles? The wear on the steps? The black in the fireplace? It feels old...it is old.”

The Autumnal Colours of Nikko

 

Riotous — a cacophony of colours
Red and gold, green and umber
A pastel blue beyond, enveloping.
 
Warmth fading to brisk
Shadows filling, floating leaves
Change is coming — change is here.
 

 

Bridge Builder

I'd rather be a builder of bridges than an erector of walls.
I'd rather think in terms of connecting than separating.
Uniting is so much more pleasing than dividing.
Walls create the Enclosed and the Other.
Bridges bring Two to the One.
 
I'd rather be a builder of bridges than an erector of walls.
Wouldn't you?
 

 

Horse in Pasture, Mountain Beyond

A simple scene: horse in pasture, mountain beyond.

What does it mean? Does it say anything?

A canvas of beauty or a commonplace pastiche?

Evocative or prosaic?

Yes: horse in pasture, mountain beyond.

Dordogne Dreams | Two Castles and a Valley Between

“The valley separates us but also binds us. We would not be here, if not for them. And they would not be there, if not for us.”

Dordogne Dreams | Ghosts of the Boschaud

“With closed eyes and the wind rustling the line of trees behind her, it took little to imagine the ghosts of long-dead monks chanting in divine benediction.”
