Presence Rising

Lake Superior | Lutsen, MN | 2012

“Beauty is composed of many things and never stands alone. It is part of horizons, blue in the distance, great primeval silences, knowledge of all things of the earth… It is so fragile it can be destroyed by a sound or thought. It may be infinitesimally small or encompass the universe itself. It comes in a swift conception wherever nature has not been disturbed.”
~ Sigurd Olson


Rock Hunter 2012

Lake Superior | Lutsen, MN 2012

My grandmother taught me how to hunt rocks
she showed me how to study and
delicately view each stone
to examine the qualities
texture, color, shape
when I feel the weight of a stone in my hand
there is a vibration, a connection
as if I am holding the hand of my grandmother

Weathered 2012

Old Shed | Lutsen, MN 2012

She sits atop the hill
Looking out onto the big lake
Her flanks seasoned with the weather
