These
sharply-pitted,
mottled, eroding,
slowly decomposing
limestone peaks;
they are not truly fit for visitation
by humans and their beasts.


As evidenced here,
another climb,
to discover yet again
if humans and their beasts
are fit to visit them.

Details of the ink drawings that carve out,
literally wash away the watercolour spaces
that they inhabit

Solitary and completely engrossing
this small huge world that I survey

Scale conforms to the priority of memory
rather than the geometry of Euclid.

The sky was everywhere sunshine,
the landscape was immensely wide open,
and the river was Huge.

Remember that day, the one down at the river?
The sky was everywhere sunshine,
the landscape was immensely wide open,
and the river was Huge.
The afternoon went on forever,
and yet took no time at all.

The vivid colours of childhood
meet vague but ever-present
Calgary colours of Buckskin and Blue.
Scale conforms to the priority of memory
rather than the geometry of Euclid.

Clearly remembered experience
meets vaguely remembered fact.
Solitary and completely engrossing

Resplendent - the Ascent
2002
Oil on Canvas
24x36 inches

The famous resplendent photograph
I think by Byron Harmon
was of a descent from Mount Resplendent.

Here they are on the way up.
Unrealized potential
the hunch of upward going
approach with trepidation
attend


Rather than on the way down
peak bagged
the slouch of downward picking
retreat, retrace, return
relieved

Standardization and commercialization
lurk everywhere on my globe,
but even standard, commercial stuff
leaves its unique traces;
an altermodern footprint,
wherever it goes.

Everywhere I go in the
physical or the digital world,
I too leave traces.
I may not leave comments on
every bit of information that I view,
but that bit has been altered
just by the fact that I have
consciously or unconsciously observed it.

I am never really certain
what those traces might be,
what they might look like, or
where exactly they have been left.

But those who come after me can tell?..
