It’s no secret that I love stones, rocks, natural structures and features in all their myriad presentations. (Just read some of my earlier blogs). This is one reason why…
Everything here where I call home is reproduce-able in my mind. I know how the buildings are built, how the houses are made, how the streets and parking lots are laid down. I have a pretty good idea how the cars are put together, how airplanes fly and even how all these people are made. This is a place I know pretty well. It’s ordered and logical (mostly) and utterly human made. Most everything here has appeared within my lifetime, and if not, certainly within the span of human history.
Camping recently, I walked around looking down at the Earth and was brought back to nature and that feeling that I am lost in an overwhelming, complicated, mysterious, unknowable, ageless and incredible place in the universe that is beyond all human comprehension.
Then I looked up and saw a tree. They’re pretty neat too.
