Like the website that hosts it, this blog is only concerned with using art and brief texts to uncover the bias and other limitations of thought conditioned by memory and tradition, thus also revealing how this largely unacknowledged tribal egotism that affects all human beings creates and sustains the systemic disorder and violence of the world in which we all live.

Without a radical awakening to the immense distance between our mental and social reality and the truth, we are condemned to continue living in the same cruel division, conflict, and sorrow to which we ourselves sustain with our personal memories, thoughts, and desires.

A Walk Around the Rim of the Gorge ― Photo Essay - 7

It was fairly cold on the 15 of December, but not cold enough to stop Melissa Hamilton Kolberg, Kim Schrag, Lily (wearing her fancy, home-made coat), and I from taking a trek from the old abandoned RR tressle overlooking the back falls of Taughannock Creek all the way down to Cayuga Lake, and then up again on the other side of the gorge to reach the main fall overlook. It was a beautiful experience full of visual delights and some surprising encounters, such as the snake that had decided to take a breather away from her deep hibernation hole and seemed unperturbed by our close proximity. Enjoy, and let me know if you would like a print of any of these images.
