your world beginning | maps, mountains, and trails – day 7


*********************************************************************************************************

Day 7 finds “Your World Beginning”, on the trail to the summit of Waterrock Knob. In search of a transitional ambience of Fall colors, fog, and rain. This is an incredible location here at the summit. There is always a constant or intermittent wind blowing. The clouds shift quickly above, or as today, the fog can be seen everywhere.

Waterrock Knob is a mountain peak in the state of North Carolina. It is the highest peak in the Plott Balsams and is the 16th highest mountain in the Eastern United States. It is the 15th highest of the 40 mountains in North Carolina over 6000 feet.

The mountain is split by both Haywood and Jackson counties in the western part of the state. It is located in the Plott Balsams mountain chain between the Great Smoky Mountains and the Great Balsam Mountains. The mountain’s summit is located within the Blue Ridge Parkway National Park Service unit.

The mountain is a popular destination with tourists and amateur hikers as it is easily accessible from the Parkway. A visitors center is located near its summit and a hiking trail leads to its top. The hiking trail and visitors center are manned and maintained by the National Park Service, part of the United States Department of the Interior.

your world beginning | the beauty of untangled things

your world beginning

an emerging light
left over from a shadowed memory
your world disappearing ….
Ending
and now
your world beginning
with the beauty of untangled things

So it is time to move beyond “Your World Disappearing.” Time to discover the light that heals, that gives beauty and peace; a place to evolve, a future of untangled things … until the cycle repeats itself.

My latest post, from my new series entitled “Your World Beginning.” A series that will consist of video art and digital collage. An evolution of beauty emerging from the ambiguity of my previous series entitled “Your World Disappearing.”

Summer from afar
under the sun and stars
longing for a bridge to cross

A landscape can have its own surreal moment. And your memories can often be found there.

a polar vortex heading south

a polar vortex heading south

snow
wind
cold
and ice
even here in the deep south; what a week it has been.

holding your absence

holding your absence

To a place too far
without the heart of here and now;
i hold onto your absence

we remember it all

we remember it all

Life like history
bound in timelessness;
and etched in collective memory ….


a tomorrow that never comes | a two ships passing, remix

an ocean of dreams;
outside my window
with two ships passing …
and a tomorrow that never comes
