Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops.


― Norman Maclean, A River Runs Through It and Other Stories


this is somewhere off the trail to Blue Lakes in the Mnt Sneffels Wilderness area.

The minute I heard my first love story
I started looking for you,
not knowing how blind that was.

Lovers don't finally meet somewhere.
They're in each other all along.
We are the mirror as well as the face in it.

We are tasting the taste,
This minute of eternity.
We are pain and what cures pain, both.

We are the sweet cold water
And the jar that pours...

An afternoon of rock climbing found me at Treasure Lake as the sun was setting. I decided I would walk out onto a cliff that has a nice vantage point of the lake and try for a shot. this is one of those a million miles from anywhere places. As I am looking around wondering what the heck to shoot I hear, "hello" from behind me. I turn and find the ghost of John Muir perched on this small little ledge, feet dangling, while writing verse of some sort into his journal.

there was my shot.

we didn't really talk. other than me asking, "may I?" he nodded and I took a dozen or so shots. then he asked me how I knew of the place... I told him my grandfather started taking me here to fish when I was 5. he smiled and nodded... after a few minutes or so, he told me it was his favorite spot in the world.

We watched the light fade for a bit and then I nodded to him as I left. one of the more satisfying exchanges of the week.

Such is the way of the world
You can never know
Just where to put all your faith
And how will it grow

Gonna rise up
Burning back holes in dark memories
Gonna rise up
Turning mistakes into gold

Such is the passage of time
Too fast to fold
And suddenly swallowed by signs
Low and behold

Gonna rise up
Find my direction magnetically
Gonna rise up
Throw down my ace in the hole...

All your dreams are made
When you're chained to the mirror and the razor blade.
Today's the day that all the world will see
Another sunny afternoon.

Walking to the sound of my favorite tune
Tomorrow never knows what it doesn't know too soon.

Need a little time to wake up
Need a little time to wake up wake up
Need a little time to wake up
Need a little time to rest your mind.

You know you should so I guess you might as well.
What's the story morning glory?

Some are just better than others... the one I had here was one of the best.

Here I came to the very edge where nothing at all needs saying...and every day on the balcony of the open sea wings, fire is born and everything is blue again like morning.

I find the map and draw a straight line
Over rivers, farms, and state lines,
The distance from 'A' to where you'd be.
It's only finger-lengths that I see.
I touch the place where I'd find your face,
My fingers in creases of distant dark places...

It's a beautiful day.
The sun is shining.
