SlowShutter Abstract

Morning on the Yakima River

My life is full of adventure that is for sure. I am very fortunate to be able to make my own decisions which include where I am planning to hang my hat each night. Recently I have often chosen to be in the great outdoors. This morning I woke up at the edge of the Yakima River here in my hometown of Cle Elum. When I looked out my car window I saw the morning light glowing on the tall grass creating a wonderful reflection.
So grateful to live in a world that presents so many simple gifts each day!

  1. Sheets of empty canvas
    Untouched sheets of clay
    Were laid spread out before me
    As her body once did
    All five horizons
    Revolved around her soul
    As the earth to the sun
    Now the air I tasted and breathed
    Has taken a turn
    Ooh and all I taught her was everything
    Ooh I know she gave me all that she wore
    And now my bitter hands
    Chafe beneath the clouds
    Of what was everything
    Oh the pictures have
    All been washed in black
    Tattooed everything
    I take a walk outside
    I'm surrounded by
    Some kids at play
    I can feel their laughter
    So why do I sear
    Oh, and twisted thoughts that spin
    Round my head
    I'm spinning
    Oh, I'm spinning
    How quick the sun can, drop away...
    And now my bitter hands
    Cradle broken glass
    Of what was everything
    All the pictures had
    All been washed in black
    Tattooed everything
    All the love gone bad
    Turned my world to black
    Tattooed all I see
    All that I am
    All I'll be...
    Uh huh...uh huh...ooh...
    I know someday you'll have a beautiful life
    I know you'll be a sun Pearl Jam
