The gravitational force of nature is its deeply ambiguous energy. Here, in the half-light of dawn, I turn unerringly toward the spectacle that is the undulant motion of rock and cloud and sky and place. I breathe trembling air in quiet exultation and think of Neruda: “Give me silence; water, hope / Give me struggle, iron, volcanoes.”
From here, I have nowhere to go but everywhere, seeking to capture that what surely will outlive us all. As I take step upon step on this journey, my every decision casts me into a future filled with uncertainty, doubt, and defiant jubilation. I may struggle to brave the long arc of time, but not for a lack of aspiration. There is a kind of poetry and truth in this land. Understanding and cherishing its beauty and interest and mystery is the rewarding act of true effort.
