Looking over some old stories I've written. This one struck a chord.
I moved to Washington in 1970 to attend law school. I had a full scholarship, a stipend, and a free place to live in a private home, with my father's cousin and his wife, they wouldn’t accept any money from me for food or uti...

Sugar-coated Multnomah Falls

On Thursday, a ‘snowstorm’ that would be laughable by northeast US standard passed through the area. True to form, snow did form and it actually stuck. Not to miss out on enjoying the Columbia River Gorge covered in snow, I headed out to photograph Wahclella Falls. I was joined by three great people: +Brian Bonham+William Woodward, and Britta. The hike to Wahclella was great. Snow and icicles greeted us the entire way and the the falls at the end of the trail did not disappoint. On the way back to Portland, we opted to exit at the Multnomah Falls stop off I-84 because we had noticed how pretty it looked on our way into the Gorge earlier that morning, covered in a sugar-coating of sorts. The cold temps helped in minimizing pedestrian traffic on the Benson Bridge and I was fortunate enough to get a photo with no one on it. All in all, a wonderful experience with equally wonderful people.

I took this photo with my +Sony a7R and Sony 70-400mm f/4-5.6 super telephoto sitting on my +Really Right Stuff TVC-34L/BH-55 tripod. I paired it up with a 3-stop 4×4 ND filter and a 105mm CPL filter, both by +Formatt-Hitech, in order to drag the shutter and capture the movement of the falling water. For stylization, I decided to stretch my legs with +onOne's newly released Perfect Effects 9 and built a custom preset.

Introduction
"To see we must forget the name of the thing we are looking at."

Claude Monet

So little of me
can be found here where you search
stand still, I'll find you. 

"New Haiku" aka Chuck C.

"Life is pure adventure, and the sooner we realize that, the quicker we will be able to treat life as art."

Maya Angelou

The Bigger Game (Part I)

Splat,
there I was in little pieces
thrown up against the wall

watching closely
the viscera would contain clues
of who I was, of what I was to say
and why it was worthy of being said.

all I had to do was stomach the mess
pick through the sticky parts
clean them like mamma's people
cleaned parts of unsightly,
smelly things I could never eat

but they kept us all alive,

watching closely
I could see my history and my future
slide down the wall and, if I wasn't careful
be washed away
after all the savory meat was taken
and neatly packaged,

be washed away like so much waste
when it was all I was all I could be

gone
if I wouldn't, couldn't say it
messy as it was
it was still me.

New Haiku

“Perhaps the whole root of our trouble, the human trouble, is that we will sacrifice all the beauty of our lives, will imprison ourselves in totems, taboos, crosses, blood sacrifices, steeples, mosques, races, armies, flags, nations, in order to deny the fact of death, the only fact we have. It seems to me that one ought to rejoice in the fact of death--ought to decide, indeed, to earn one's death by confronting with passion the conundrum of life.” 

James Baldwin, The Fire Next Time

"Because you are alive, everything is possible " 

Thich Nhat Hanh
