Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower

  • Burning leaves
  • Mushrooms
  • Back lite leaves
  • The woods
  • sassafras leaves

“You expected to be sad in the fall. Part of you died each year when the leaves fell from the trees and their branches were bare against the wind and the cold, wintery light. But you knew there would always be the spring, as you knew the river would flow again after it was frozen. When the cold rains kept on and killed the spring, it was as though a young person died for no reason.”
? Ernest Hemingway, A Moveable Feast

Treking in the Pines lands

It started with a search for some country cooking at Lucilles luncheonette in the center of the Pine Lands, Warrensgrove and then to do a trek to Pygmy Pine Plains for a Sunset photo shoot, sometimes it just feels good to be alone in the pines.
Lucilles was closed, darn, but I did get some nice sunsets photographs in a very different and special place, some of the plants here live only here and no other place on this planet.

The Pgymy Pine Plains (or Dwarf Plains) of the Pine Barrens of New Jersey are upland forests that have long intrigued biologists.Early in the 20th Century, Witmer Stone described them as “desolate stretches of white sand barrens … for the most part devoid of trees higher than one’s knees.” The Pine Plains are dominated by dwarfed Pitch Pines and Blackjack Oaks in the low canopy. Pine Barrens Heather is frequent in the understory. Ground cover includes lichens, mosses, and the sub-shrubs Bearberry and Teaberry.

The Zen of Creativity


Free Falling

The Zen of Creativity

If energy is really flowing freely, the brush paints by itself, the camera photographs, the sculpture forms, the words write, the dance dances. The creator of the art, the subject of the art, and the expression itself merge into a single process in which there is no reflection or evaluation, just the art manifesting itself. Quote John Daido Loori
This is how this image from yesterday’s outing manifested itself. It only happens at certain times in certain places.
