aspen leaves spent on the forest floor at the North Rim, GCNP


color so bountiful in autumn, quaking aspens leaves shimmering gold and orange against the blue skies. a gust of wind drops them to the forest floor, dew spectacled and crisp, still. 

memories of a trip sublime.

almost rainy and missing you


 

I felt homesick for me.

My memories radiate out as though I'm in the center of a great labyrinth… standing there with enough hope for tomorrow but with certain regrets for past misgivings. It seems impenetrable, but I arrived here somehow.

 

The words at some point stopped coming for me.

 Without words, I turned to photography, to speak a language universal.

One of the tigers rescued from a failed fake sanctuary, now rehomed in a real sanctuary in Arkansas. She went out of her way to come greet me at the fence.
