A potpourri of photography and words about Nature, social issues, and anything else that crosses my path during the day.

Wetland In Winter
Scenes from a walk in the Dykeman Spring wetland this morning. Hopefully this will look entirely different this time tomorrow; we're supposed to get 5" - 8" (13cm - 20cm) of snow overnight. And you know I'll be back here with the camera tomorrow!
There was something formless and perfect before the universe was born. It is serene. Empty. Solitary. Unchanging. Infinite. Eternally present. It is the mother of the universe. For lack of a better name, I call it the Tao.
It flows through all things, inside and outside, and returns to the origin of all things.
The Tao is great. The universe is great. Earth is great. Man is great. These are the four great powers.
Man follows the earth. Earth follows the universe. The universe follows the Tao. The Tao follows only itself.
Tao Te Ching, Chapter 25 Translation by Stephen Mitchell
