The Path

Le sentier_045_047


Since our move, I’m opening boxes and discovering all sorts of things, like this photo I took when I was a young man. It’s a path in the Morris woods, behind Rockland High School, which probably lead to a sawmill that was further out in the woods. The path rose up a slope on top of which was a clearing, the blue light you see in the middle of the photo. At the time, this was for me the most beautiful place on earth, so much so that I wrote three pieces in its honour : “The Path”, “Leaves and Light” and “In the Clearing.” This place no longer exists and is lost forever. It was razed to make way for condos and single-family homes. The human folly of men with no vision.
