Magic places




Breitenbush Hot Springs
Oregon, USA
September 2004

This is one of my favorite places, one of the most magical ones I've even been at. Lost in the Oregon mountains, it used to be an old hippie commune. Today, it welcomes visitors that want to disconnect from the world and spend a few days enjoying the outdoor natural hot springs, the organic food, and most of all, the silence. There are no televisions, no cellphones, no cars, an no one seems to be in a hurry. There are none of the things that abound so much in modern daily life in the city.

Our home in Alaska has recently brought me memories of Breitenbush. I like this unconscious connection and it makes a lot of sense, really. On one hand, we don't have TV, or cellphone, or a car, and we're really not in a hurry to do much of anything. On the other hand, we have turned our shed into the original steam house that it used to be. To come out of the intense heat into the most clear and starry nights I have ever seen, adds a touch of intense mysticism to my life. Regardless of the -20F temperatures.




Castro de Baroña, A Coruña, Spain
December 1999


I remember many afternoons, a long time ago, up on those cliffs at El Castro watching the waves below us for hours. The power of the Atlantic Ocean crashing repeatedly against the rocks was mesmerizing.

That power of nature is the same one I encounter around me here, though in a very different form. It's at once more subtle and wild... and it intimidates me...

Yo que solo puedo con un blog, intenté tener 2, pero no se pudo.

Las fotografías están fantásticas, hasta logramos captar ese poder en la inmensidad y la belleza en los paisajes naturales.

Si no te importa también pasaré por aquí.

Hola Karen: A ver si puedo con dos, no lo sé. De momento sólo estoy traduciendo entradas antiguas del otro blog, así que en realidad van a aser la misma cosa. Lo que no me da es para hacer dos blogs diferentes, eso desde luego. :)

Bienvenida aquí, allá, o donde quieras

Irreverens said...

Esta entrada me ha recordado un poema que escribí hace muchos años.
Si no te importa, te lo copio aquí.
:)

Once again those wild waves
bringing about uneasiness,
rolling,
flooding in,
splashing,
crashing,
hitting the rocks,
bringing them down,
scattering them,
sweeping them back
into that long dead blue
and grey-green of mine.

Those wild waves...
curling in under your stormy presence
and lightning smile.

Precioso, Irre. Gracias por compartir tu poema. Le queda de lujo a la foto, desde luego.
Besos

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
