This photograph is from the same roll as those immediately below, but it's set apart because it is has a distinct resonance for me. It represents an aspect of summer I cannot begin to define...something from my youth during which I distinctly remember experiencing certain moods when stimulated by certain visual environments. This one triggers those feelings. It's a very special place.

Essho Funi- the principle of the oneness of life and its environment.
Freedom, peace, nature and beauty. The call of the Sassafrass River.
What if pain and sorrow stood,
In a box of timeless wood.
Fear and anger locked would be,
Waiting for Pandora's key.
Flowing current to our fate
Aging by the river's gate.
Suns and moons of time,
We see,
deeper than a memory.
On the banks we walk for fun,
In the timelessness we're one.

Classic,photos, John.
Exquisitely sensitive.

Thanks, Dottie. I'm glad you found this blog. I've been trying to keep it fairly current. Now I'm going to google Essho Funi. ;-)
