Remembering what I’ve forgotten
“I return to the wilderness to remember what I have forgotten, that the world can be wholesome and beautiful, that the harmony and integrity of ecosystems at peace is a mirror to what we have lost.”
― Terry Tempest Williams
I’m testing a new teleconverter which extends the reach of my zoom lens and discovering a dreamy, painterly quality in some of my images. To me, the softness of this image speaks to the slow coming into focus of forgotten memory.
Every time I see a small herd of deer in the Bosque del Apache, I am so taken by their tender presence. They are compassionate creatures whose gaze feels careful and yet confident… graceful and gently piercing. There is so much to learn from them.

The world is a mirror image of your mind…
Clearly, I need the camera to tell these stories. How these words stumble out of my mind and clack into this screen incompletely….
What is precious
inside us does not
care to be known
by the mind…
