In a Fog

Strange, to wander in the fog.
Each bush and stone stands alone,
No tree sees the next one,
Each is alone.

My world was full of friends
When my life was filled with light,
Now as the fog descends
None is still to be seen.

Truly there is no wise man
Who does not know the dark
Which quietly and inescapably
Separates him from everything else.

Strange, to wander in the fog,
To live is to be alone.
No man knows the next man,
Each is alone.

~ Herman Hesse, Im Nebel from Unterwegs in Gesammelte Schriften, vol. 5, p. 517 (S.H. transl.)

The Four Aces

For display only. Not for commercial use or purposes.

The Four Aces is a professional film set designed to look like a classic 1950’s Route 66 motel, gas station and diner. I read online that Rob Zombie’s House of 1000 Corpses was filmed here (yikes!), as well as numerous commercials and music videos. Not long after I arrived, The Caretaker appeared and told me to leave. I have watched too many movies to mess with The Caretaker! I promptly left.

Bring in the New . . .

She sings a song unto her own ears, solitary, but it is sufficient.
It is the song of her being. Oh, if I may sing the song of my being it will be sufficient.

~ From The Poet in the Desert by Charles Erskine Scott Wood

A Peaceful and Happy New Year!
