A flake of snow brought the avalanche down. — Ralph Waldo Emerson
And a picture set the blog in motion.
Thanks to my friend Mike, for his reminder.
As soon as there is life there is danger. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
I stopped writing a list of New Year’s resolutions because I don’t like to waste paper. But if I did…visiting a new horizon every year, in very old and divergent places, would rank near the top.
The health of the eye seems to demand a horizon. We are never tired, so long as we can see far enough. —Ralph Waldo Emerson
What began as a realistic shot of a hummingbird perched on a honeysuckle vine in our garden became, after a bit of play, something else. As I developed this I listened to a prelude for piano by Debussy, symphony music by Rodrigo—what might it have become with a bluegrass or classic rock influence? Next time.
“It is a happy talent to know how to play.”
—Ralph Waldo Emerson
I pass this tangle of mixed forest when I go out walking from our house. I don’t pay much mind to it on the downhill side, at the far end of the road, but on returning I slow my steps and wave to the spectators lined up along the route.
“Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience.” —Ralph Waldo Emerson
