Connections to the land

Connections run deep in this land that surrounds us.. I have come to know that there is a connection whose thread runs deeply within us.. to know the cracks, the crevices, the coulees, the desert, the saddles, the islands, the rimlands... the list goes on into beautiful on.. with words that flow freely from our lips. As the words flow freely our legs search to flow freely wandering this beautiful land that surrounds us, to know the land as we know our lovers body.

We can only percieve it through human eyes who seek to understand its constant changing patterns.

We have tried in vain to own it, to consume it, to wander it, to fear it, to absolutely love it and in the end to feed it with our bodies and souls.

I do not worry for we are small morsels trying our best to connect, to flow with the land...

it ultimately owns us

Annie, we don't know one another, but my daughter Jamie suggested I check out your blog, and I love it. Your art work is beautiful, tugs at the ancient parts of me. One of your face sculptures lives happily in my office where I get to look at it every day.
Many blessings,
