Where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves . . .

Photographs are expressions created for the Tubac anti-war art exhibit (original artists unknown). The second painting is entitled “Grief Knows No Boundaries.”

Tubac was the original Spanish colonial garrison in Arizona.

Tubac Arizona is located near the the only remaining Titan 2 Nuclear Missile Site. The silo is now a museum. The other 50 plus Titan locations in the United States were dismantled in in the early 1980’s when President Ronald Reagan ordered a weapons modernization plan.

  1. P.S You didn’t have to apologise. You didn’t do a thing. ! just said hope to see you.

    PPS Don’t worry about translating your posts for me. (It was very kind – thanks). I just have to get rid of a couple viruses. I’ll catch up.

  2. Hi Bruce,
    For some reason, I can’t read this. It doesn’t exactly look like a differerent language but it’ s not comprehensible – maybe it IS another language. Has anyone else had this problem?
    Anyway, the is just beautiful!

    I miss you and hope you drop by for visit.
    Yr friend,
    Claire

    • Hi Claire – I just got back to the cabin after a week working in a fairly isolated location on the upper tip of Vancouver Island. Internet hardly works there, so I only tried my emails a couple times. I appreciate your liking the post, but sorry you couldn’t read it. Maybe it’s the CIA blocking things…. just kidding, though Ive blurted this to Fran a few times when a when a particularly hard hitting CBC radio program goes off air.

      Here’s what Joesph Campbell said to go with the photos –

      “Where we had thought to find an abomination, we shall find a god; where we had thought to slay another, we shall slay ourselves; where we had thought to travel outwards, we shall come to the centre of our own existence; where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world.”

      I sincerely apologize for not dropping by – I have had a busy month and only looked at a few blogs. Tonight I’m focusing on finishing a Thomas Merton post; something quite personal. Then tomorrow morning early I head down island to pick Fran up at the ferry terminal. Oh yes – on the way I’m stopping in to see Charles, who I haven’t visited with in at least 6 years – I’m really looking forward to seeing him. Fran and myself will be back here in the evening and I absolutely promise to drop by Sunday to see how you’ve been over at Electrica in the Desert.

      Peace, love & friendship – Bruce
