Tough to write about. Pictures worth a thousand words, and thousands of words with Dylan Thomas cadences evoking possible realities easily bypassed by the harried. Separated at birth by generations of time and unknown distances, Bill Brown's my sympatico brother/grandson able to weave whole cloth out of my notions fleetingly triggered, soon forgotten, by wind and dusk on spent oatgrass.

Many of the images are via stationary camera and still scenes plus something moving time-lapsed into view, steadily and for a long time. Jerry Uelsmann's still photos come to mind. One narrative strand describes a common gravesite with a seven-foot skeleton surrounded by average-sized ones; another poses the notion that living in Paradise (e.g., Vancouver, BC) brings forth notions of paranoia.
