Just passing through

This is a one night stop as I make my way slowly east toward Blanding UT where I've made arrangements to pick up my mail next week. On the way I hope to find a camping spot or two along White Canyon and hike the canyon floor. There are ruins of Anasazi cave dwellings in the canyon walls I'd like to have a look at from below. I saw some of them from an overlook on a trip out here with a friend many years ago and they've peeked my curiosity. I think it would be neat to get an idea of what it might feel like to live in the canyon.

Something Useful Can Be Artful

A life, I believe - lived well and openly - with a certain sort of careful attention to form and function - creates art - or, at the very least, inspires it. I believe that art is contained in the ordinary events, that the small things we see and hear and learn everyday provide opportunities to explore parts of ourselves or our society in a way that can actually produce art. Whether it is a story you leave behind or one you take with you, I believe that any given situation is rich with opportunities to participate in the creation of something useful that can also be artful.
