Life, Death and Love

In a weird sort of mood, I think it’s the mountains – there’s so much space, but simultaneously a sense of enclosement, because there’s a lot less sky than I’m used to. And I have a distinct feeling that they’re not real; I can’t reach out and touch them. Even taking a walk did no good. It’s surreal and beautiful, and yes, I took lots of pictures. Of mushrooms and faraway horses.

Anyway, this picture struck a chord:

I’m not sure who to credit, if anyone knows, please let me know!

So you get that picture and a song by Leonard Cohen.

One of his best, I think.

    My goodness, Leonard Cohen. You are having a moody day. I hope it lifts. I think you should go up a mountain because I hear the sky’s pretty big up there.
    I can’t wait to see your photos.

    Voyager beat me to it -- you are just not high enough up there! I live at 7,600′ above sea level and there is plenty of sky up here. :-)

    Looking forward to far away horses. And mushrooms!
