– William Wordsworth
What can be retained in travels are the images etched in the mind…the thoughts and feelings they had evoked. As time passes, we can still relive those moments as we extract the gems from our mindscape.
These pilings once formed the foundations of houses built on the waters of Astoria. They are now resting posts for cormorants and gulls. Once useful for human settlement, they now blend in the natural seascape like mazes for the birds…still offering a haven of rest despite their weathered and beaten forms.
The old and the new can co-exist in the elasticity of the mind. The human imagination and creativity can reach boundless horizons, and connect timeless landscapes in the mind’s eye.
