I thank Ernest Hemingway for "What Reward, without Risk?" I thank Edward Abbey for wisdoms he shared and the rebellion he continues to inspire: "Resist Much, Obey Little". Valued input from two of the 20th Century's greatest writers. I thank Sammy Freeman and Adnan Khashoggi for their lessons and guidance regarding life in general; knowledge I have utilized throughout my life. I thank Virginia Mageras for the wisdom and guidance she has provided for over a decade.
Chronicling The Wild that Remains is one reason for taking risks while obeying only nature's rules tied to wilderness. Chronicling the Wild that remains, allows me to exhibit our wild and open spaces, with photographs and words. Evenually it will all be gone, except on paper or in digital files.
Buffalo and wild Mustangs continue to roam the deserts, desolate canyons and plains. Wild they may be, gentle they are, unless threatened. Few things are as pleasing for me as being on the open range, close to these wild creatures. I moved to Moab, Utah, to be closer to the wild that remains. For two years I lived in a small home on the last street on the east side of town, next to the wild, where mule deer eat most plants in my yard.
Works of other photographers, artists and writers I come to know I intend to exhibit on www.PhotoMoab.com.
One philosophy I learned to dispel: "You can never go home again." Not correct, since all roads lead back home, if you allow yourself to follow them home. I thank the woman who has helped guide me back home. Thanks!
The road rolls on forever...
