Writing about music is like dancing about architecture — it’s really a stupid thing to want to do.
– Elvis Costello
After silence, that which comes nearest to expressing the inexpressible is music.
– Aldous Huxley
Picture of the Week
I finally hooked my film scanner up again after almost two years of collecting dust. My test scan worked, so you get a picture of me standing on my head in one of my favorite spots.
I took my lovely wife to this spot once, and she was a trooper. It’s a 5.6-mile roundtrip over a rugged trail barely discernable from the rest of the forest. The hike includes walks along cliff edges and slippery climbs up muddy hillsides, with Richland Creek visible the entire hike.
It’s in the Richland Creek Wilderness, an intense concentration of beauty in the Ozark National Forest. I’ve never found an area in Arkansas more scenic and secluded.
