“Beyond the edge of the world there’s a space where emptiness and substance neatly overlap, where past and future form a continuous, endless loop. And, hovering about, there are signs no one has ever read, chords no one has ever heard.” Haruki Murakami
I love these words by Mr Murakami. When I created this picture I imagined a character one step from edge, one step from the beginning (the cliché) but also one step from returning to the world she knew. This step backward is symbolized by a featureless hole, an intractable compulsion to let the edge be and be happy with what she has and what she can expect and a dangerous alternative to redefining boundaries.
How many times have you found yourself on this narrow ledge? How many excuses have you conjured for not looking over it?
Photo: Captured on the North Shore of Oahu at a feature called “The Elevator.” It is a lava tube, 10′ across and 20′ down. It splits into multiple tubes under water. In the summer, when the North Shore of Oahu is waveless, you can dive this place . Prints are available up to 42″
There is a roosting tree for fruit bats 100m from Sulu Garden, Miagao. Every night at 6:30 the bats leave the tree in groups until the whole sky is filled with them.
The first leg of my trip is complete.
The last major miles stone of mile, too.
I went to Iowa, became a dad, took some pictures and spoke at a University. That about sums the March and April 2014. That’s it in a nut shell; in pictures and captions below.
To be honest, I really miss being near my son. It only hits me when I’m alone with his pictures and it surprises me every time. All of his New born photos are here.
I look forward to visiting Iowa again and again over the years to see her in all the seasons. I caught Iowa in between Winter and Spring and I don’t feel that did her beauty any justice. I’m not convinced I could live there, I need mountains and ocean, but I am certain that it is an American treasure.
