“I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To know that for destruction
Is also great”
― Robert Frost
"Any startling piece of work has a subversive element in it, a delicious element often. Subversion is only disagreeable when it manifests in political or social activity.
"You cannot run away from weakness;
you must some time fight it out or perish;
and if that be so, why not now, and where you stand?"
―Robert Louis Stevenson
I'm going through photographs, sorting them into themes -- Fire, Ice, Blood & Bone. These images and words pull me into contemplation for the work that lies ahead. Some of it is literal, but the deeper work is personal. This far North, at this time of year, I descend into myself. Every time.
It's a seizing, clamping rhythm.
But it's seriously productive.
Most of these images are somewhere in my Instagram feed. Follow if you're hanging out there, too.
