The Wood is Old

"The Wood Song" by Emily Sailers of the Indigo Girls always reminds me of my two best friends in the world, Jenn Wester and Amy Varner. These pictures are from our trip west in 2003. All pictures were taken by one of us. I shot the above panoramic of Sedona and compiled it in Photoshop.

Jenn smiles from the South Rim  of the Grand Canyon in Arizona.  People ask me if the background is real. It is.

Here I am freezing at the Grand Canyon.  I never dreamt May in Arizona could be so cold. Here I am freezing at the Grand Canyon. I never dreamt May in Arizona could be so cold.

"The thin horizon of a plan is almost clear. My friends and I have had a tough time... bruising our brains hard up against change..."

This is one of the rare pictures of the three of us.  We’re on an overlook of a red rock formation in Sedona, Ariz.

"Now I see we're in the boat in two by twos, only the heart that we have for a tool we could use. And the very close quarters are hard to get used to... love weighs the hold down with its weight..."

"The wood is tired and the wood is old. We'll make it fine if the weather holds but if the weather holds we'll have missed the point, that's where I need to go."
