Moss. Rock. Flow. On the Metolius River, Central Cascades . . .
On the road in the American Northwest. [ click photo for next . . . ]


We shape the world and the world shapes us.

There may well indeed be another planet in the Universe with high
mountains and streams of pure, fast-flowing water, but we do not
know that for a fact.

There may also be other beings in the Universe capable of Love and
Compassion, but also, that, we do not know for a fact.

Love is like water: wherever it is there in abundance, life flourishes;
And water is like love: wherever it is wasted, polluted, blocked or
dammed, we abuse not just our Earth’s defining essence, but also some-
how our own.


We shape the world and the world shapes us.

See the electronic keyboard—the synthesizer—with its brittle octaves
made of wired concrete, and its complete lack of sympathetic reso-
nance. I say to you, when similar sounds no longer spontaneously
vibrate together, when like sounds no longer reflect one another, no
longer mirror each other’s energies, upon which instrument shall we
play our songs of love? Upon which instrument shall we teach our
children the principles of Nature’s watercourse way?


Love wants to come round.

The performer who must sing.

who must play,

in a space without echoes

quickly cancels

all future
