Headwaters, CO
2014

How does one experience a place fully? How does one take it all in? How can I bring this place with me and keep it with me forever? I want to hold on to the feeling that this place gives me. I want to remember. How does one remember?
How? BE here. Be present. Take notice. Observe… And so, as I sit by this river…I observe.
