High Sierra Cascades

High Sierra Cascades

On a day (Black Friday) when people across the country are tromping through shopping malls, I post an alternative view. Within this image, I can still hear the cascading water, smell the pine-infused wind, breathe the chill mountain air. Feelings of peace and contemplation return. The water... is life. An essential element of our universe. Such reflections become an invocation of power greater than our individual selves. Power that unites us.

Stark contrast to people fighting in line at your local Walmart.


Be still. Gather yourself. The thunder rolls away and there comes a clear dawn.
