"Delicate Dusk" -- call concerning
Below are direct links to the Grand Canyon/Landscape narratives:
(Special note: The Grand Canyon narratives came to be during our private float and as a result of my dissatisfaction in the attempt to express myself only with photography; which, although somewhat successful, seemed a bit incomplete. In frustration I began to write down my feelings, often in-flow. The results include these narratives. The narratives should be read in the order presented above. I hope you exact some of the power and glory of this marvelous place from the writings.)
So what is it then, that brings this group here? What possible motivation would a "successful'" 53 year-old fully-educated man have in experiencing; factually, in choosing to be pounded mercilessly from his rowing seat by the huge lateral waves in Upset rapid, only to get back on the rowing seat and have the event repeat itself? What is it that would excite and intrigue me enough to enjoy being whisked off my rowing platform (like a common gnat) by the backwash (not the actual wave, but merely the backwash!) of everyman's unknown lateral wave at the base of Lava Falls? Why not sit favorably at home, comfortably watching the football game and admiring one's possessions? Indeed, why. Because what we have become -- what, to the greatest extent all of us here in the land of plenty have become -- is not real.
spend 99 point whatever amounts of our time in a God-awful synthetic
reality, mostly put to sleep by the mundane chore of earning a typical
living to pay for whyever we decided to own whatever.
