Under the Same Sky

We all live under the same sky,
but we don’t all have the same horizon

Midwestern Abundance

Apply yourself both now and in the next life.
Without effort, you cannot be prosperous.
Though the land be good, You cannot have an abundant crop without cultivation

Cloud Mountains

Squint a little and imagine your feet on other ground in other places west. Look off over the horizon with the mountains under your eye. Things grander, things greater lie in front of you. Sense them, know they are there, believe they are there.

Know they are there, believe they are there.
Know they are there, believe they are there.
Know they are there, believe they are there.

Know they are there, believe they are there as they turn to clouds and slowly disappear.

This photo really took off today – it was featured on •portalwisconsin.org, had 1,500 views on the blog and last I checked, was still holding on to an Explore spot on Flickr. Out of all those people, I wonder how many look at clouds like this and imagine they are mountains…

Surrounding Atmosphere

For me, a landscape does not exist in its own right, since its appearance changes at every moment;
but the surrounding atmosphere brings it to life – the light and the air which vary continually.
For me, it is only the surrounding atmosphere which gives subjects their true value.

– Claude Monet

Nothing to Lose

Some of us are timid.
We think we have something to lose
so we don’t try for that next hill

– Maya Angelou
