These are photographs taken by me and my husband.
“Time as we know it was created by man.”
“One luminary clock against the sky
Proclaimed the time was neither wrong nor right.”
“The first thing necessary for a constructive dealing with time is to learn to live in the reality of the present moment. For psychologically speaking, this present moment is all we have.”
“Faith—is the Pierless Bridge
Supporting what We see
Unto the Scene that We do not—
Too slender for the eye
It bears the Soul as bold
As it were rocked in Steel
With Arms of Steel at either side—
It joins—behind the Veil
To what, could We presume
The Bridge would cease to be
To Our far, vacillating Feet
A first Necessity.”
“I had been afraid of the awful presence of the river, which was the soul of the river, but through her I learned that my spirit shared in the spirit of all things.”
“Have you also learned that secret from the river; that there is no such thing as time?” That the river is everywhere at the same time, at the source and at the mouth, at the waterfall, at the ferry, at the current, in the ocean and in the mountains, everywhere and that the present only exists for it, not the shadow of the past nor the shadow of the future.”
“The past has brought me to this place, but does not define me.
“I live in the desert.
The vultures scream above me flapping wings, blizzard of feathers, revolting in the bleak sky.
The dry heat envelops, wraps its arms around me, rocking and quieting me.
Sunlight blinding. Atop white hot rocky formations, the heart is barren.
I see a tree, my face etched into her naked branches. Her skeleton bent toward the sun as the lizard scurries up her spine.
I live in the desert.
There is life here.”
“His heart crashed into mine, and a wave was formed. Rippling into the infinite grey universe.”
“Reflection in jest. Dressed in threads of whimsy. Painted mask shaded from the sun, but melting all the same.”
“First he surrendered
Then he slept
I sit here waiting
The engine on, purring with urgency
A rainbow arching above me”
“Then I felt adored by many. It is enough right now to be truly and unconditionally adored by a single being. ”
“It is only fear that keeps me from crossing.”
“I was hit by a car once on my bike, but I still rode home.”
“The branch hangs low
It bears no fruit
Its pine needles jagged, aromatic
The light refracted
I squint, my vision blurred
The branch hangs low
It bears no fruit”
“I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.”
“We must take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented.”
“If you can sit quietly after difficult news…
If in a financial downturn you remain perfectly calm…
If you see your neighbors travel to favorite places without a tinge of jealousy…
If you can happily eat whatever is put on your plate…
If you can love everyone around you unconditionally…
If you can always find contentment just where you are…
You are probably…

“I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.”
“I miss you-I miss us”
