With fresh snow on the ground, we went up the hill in Geir’s hometown in Norway.
As we came down the hill, something Marcus Aurelius said in the movie Gladiator seemed to be more appropriate to say than anything else, “It’s a good home, worth fighting for.”
High resolution, higher resolution! In every corner of the picture!
(Conclusion above is based on my observation of the photography exhibits at National Art Gallery of Canada and the Art Gallery of Ontario.)
Closer and closer, I am drawn to their majestic beauty. It’s unmistakable now – these must be the Rocky Mountains. As I come near, they ready to surround me, to devour me. I have no choice but to worship them, to submit to them.
Then they smile at me, presenting me their most precious treasure.
One of them invites me to climb onto her shoulder, looking down at the gem in her palm.
Another is topped with 325 square kilometres of glacier.
But she is weakened, by the disasters my own fellow beings have caused, the ice at her feet retreating 10 metres a year. I sit close to her, listening to her silently moan.
I wish I could remain, in this endless dream.
