Moments in Time

Spot Pond, Fells Reservation, Massachusetts

Along the shore of Spot Pond. I have been here many times. Moments in Time flying by. The Pond is never the same.

Spot Pond: A Day for Reflections

Spot Pond: Misty Traveler. Passing.

Spot Pond: Where is the Pond?

Spot Pond: A Perfect Winter Day

Sharing it with the Forest

Lincoln Conservation Land, Massachusetts

Today is my birthday. I like to share it with the Forest. There is no concept of birthday Here. There is no time to be born. Nor the time to die. Life is Timeless.

Lincoln: Sharing It with the Forest

Lincoln: Unfortunate Accident? Or Seasonal Clearing?

Lincoln: Tall and Little. Closeness to Family? Or to the Tall?

Lincoln: **I am better than you** game Is Not being played Here.

Lincoln: Still up in the Air. Touching the branches.

Lincoln: Dormant Life. Ready for Spring. Holding on to Old and Dry.

Lincoln: Egoless World. I can throw away mine.

The NEXT Day

Fells Reservation, Massachusetts

The Storm has passed. The Sun is up. Blue Sky. Fluffy Snow. Hidden Trails. On our Way. Steps into the White. So Gentle. So Fragile. The World I love to see. And leave untouched.

Fells: Fluffy Snow

Fells: On our Way

Fells: Some walking. Some spinning.

Fells: Swirly wind caught in the snow?

Fells: Snowflake Castles. In firm hold of pine needle whorls.

Fells: Little Pine. We know each other well. Just checking on Her.

Fells: How do I cross to the other side?

Fells: This should be the trail?

Fells: Leaving the footprints behind

Fells: Human Trail. Bulldozing through.

Fells: Heavy load. Coping skills come handy.

Fells: Baby pines seem to enjoy this hide-and-seek game

Fells: If only I could step over without touching It. Like a Sage.

Fells: We humans are a part of It. After All. And the Sun behind.

On THAT Day

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

It is snowing. Today's Warning: STAY AT HOME! Have we humans lost the ability to live on this Planet? I wish to be with the Winter. And I do not mind a slip.

Fresh Pond: Transgression? Silence.

Fresh Pond: Caught in It? Or a Part of It.

Fresh Pond: Snow on their backs. They do not seem to mind.

Fresh Pond: I do not mind either. Different dress code.

Fresh Pond: Swept into It. Waiting.

Fresh Pond: Blurred by It. Standing.

Fresh Pond: Trees. A Script on white page.

Fresh Pond: All Here

Winter comes with a BANG

Cambridge, Massachusetts

Did She hear my Cries? Of course, the science tells us a different story. With numbers, formulas, analysis... all the necessary tools to get to the Truth. Is it the Truth? Does it matter? Not to me. I rather stick with my Story. It makes me FLY.

Cambridge: Tough Road ahead

Cambridge: Flying Snowflakes

Cambridge: White. Quiet. Soft.

Cambridge: Night-light Impressions

A Day for Swimming

Mauna Kea Beach, Hawai'i aka Big Island

Gently stepping into the water. Splashing around my feet. With each step, the ocean gets closer. Until the moment I throw myself into. And I am with the ocean. Carrying me around. Looking down through turquoise. Reflective shadows on the sand. Dancing in the rhythm of the ocean. Sprinkles land on my face. Playing with the ball. Lolling on the water. Alan Watts's words come alive: 
You swim to experience the water rippling past you, and to enjoy the floating sensation when you lie on your back and look at the blue sky and the birds circling about. Every moment of it you are simply absorbed in this ripply, luminous world, looking at the patterns and the shifting net of sunlight underneath and the sand way down below - that's what swimming is about.
ALAN WATTS, Still the Mind
