Looking into the void: the Wilderness of Dreams
When I sleep, I dream, and when I dream I wander the wildernesses I've visited in Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and beyond. There are never any trails or roads, but just undulating space, pocketed with adventures. I like thinking that my feet somehow read terrain directly into my subconscious. Understanding the land is somehow different from looking at GIS or Google Earth 3D, or studying Landscape Ecology or Watershed Analysis. I like thinking that maybe mountains and streams fit together in ways only dreams can really fathom. I don't know, but I do enjoy looking down from dreamlit summits across verdant acres of potential adventure.
