The tide is the evidence of being connected to everything else.
The implications of this are immense.
The tide is the dance of the earth, moon and sun. (Click on photographs to enlarge them)
On the beach At Lincoln City 11/09/05
The heaving and rolling
a Zen masters Koan.
A smile in the gray dawn at the recognition
that the universe both sings
The tide is a returning and a continuing. The photos that follow are a representation of that eternal notion. Nothing leaves but that it returns. The tide is continually recycling the contents of the ocean and depositing them on the shore. It is a metaphor that speaks of something.
Having come from somewhere near Idaho in ages that have no history attached to them this monolith, Haystack Rock at Cannon Beach Oregon, stands as a representative of change and the tremendous forces associated with life on earth. Eventually it will be smooth sand and no consciousness will have noticed it occurring.
This is the reality we must accommodate ourselves to because it is the only reality. That being said, I believe there is more here than meets the eye. Something is going on.
What a wonderful mystery.
