The warm and beautiful summer of the Pacific Northwest this year flicked off like a light switch and just as fast we were all required to accept this new season and the tumultuous damp heaviness with it. We are like these sunflowers drooping under the weight of the new season, still clinging to the lightness of the summer that just swept away. The layers of our immediate environment are immense with complexity; the inseparable layers of the so-called man-made world with the natural world, though we deny it forget it resist it, its of the same cloth. Abrupt change brings about awareness of the complexities of the world we live in, the necessity of seasons and change, the resistance we experience that cause illness and grief. We become aware of the complexities of our man-made shit when we are suddenly required to understand them in order to fix a leak or stop a flood inside the structure's we built to protect us from the weather. When the power goes out and we must find other ways to get by without electricity momentarily. There is depth that is apparent only when the trees blow violently, evoking the complex interweaving of myself with the environment, that I am inseparable from it.
