Mysterious Pyramid

A mysterious stepped-pyramid glows under the stars at night on a checkered grey and black surface. I used Bryce and Adobe Photoshop software to create this design.

Lessons From The Trail

Don’t Rush


People are always in a hurry. In fact, I would suggest this is more common today than ever. Impatience is a sickness and people can’t wait to be somewhere else – anywhere other than their present location. In many instances, this may be inconsequential. However, patience can be very important in an unfamiliar environment.

Case in point: my Adventure At Paine Creek. During a grueling 7 hour hike on a mountain in near 90-degree temperatures, and without a trail – only my ears to listen for running water through the forest, below – I was struggling to make headway. Frustrated with my pace, constantly having to stop and untangle myself from vines, plants and trees, legs bleeding from cuts…there was a temptation to recklessly plow my way through the foliage – to get out as fast as I could!

But, understanding that such behavior would increase the likelihood of injury, I chose instead to remind myself to slow down and exercise caution. As it turned out, doing so provided me with an opportunity on two occasions to observe high rock ledges hidden behind bushes – use your time wisely.

Lessons From The Trail

The sounds of forest animals, echos of rushing water among mountains, wind through the trees…adventures in hiking and photography contribute to a sense of peace & happiness in my life. Accordingly, in order to enjoy such occasions, it’s important to understand and follow a few simple rules – Lessons From The Trail.


Don’t Be Caught Off Guard

It never ceases to amaze me, that, given I only weigh 230 lbs., my weight can nevertheless cause movement of boulders many times my size, often upward of a thousand pounds. While it’s not complicated to understand – a focal point of balance hidden from view – it can be difficult to react when you find yourself caught off guard.

It can happen as you navigate a field of smaller rocks, sometimes unstable and possibly slippery. In your mind, you’ve mapped out a sequence of steps to safely guide your movement across the area, ending on the surface of a large, flat rock assumed to be safe. As you place your final step, the last rock shifts unexpectedly, causing you to lose balance and jeopardizing your safety – not everything is as it appears.

A Block of Glass

It’s just a block of glass that I’ve had for many years. It weighs a few pounds and it’s green. It’s not an emerald, but I do place value in the beauty it has provided over time. Light refracting through a prism. Pretty simple. Perhaps you might enjoy this, as well? If so, prints and more are available in my shops at Pixels and Redbubble. Thanks!
