Desolate Beauty: A Contemplation of the Desert

BY DAVID MORRISON
@ VOL 16 ON JUN 29, 2017

Contemplative writer David Morrison and Monk Drums (El Paso vol.11) creator Jacob Neria takes us on a journey of of sound, image, and spoken word celebrates a vision of desert spirituality.

As David explains, there is a beauty that can be experienced in the scarcity of desert if we come to it with contemplative eyes. The word, “contemplation,” in Latin, means to “gaze intently upon.” It’s possible to walk in desert landscapes and witness its emptiness until a stunning beauty arises. And further, this beauty begins to gaze into the beholder, and one is transformed forever. In the Irish language, “to contemplate,” means to place oneself at the “edge of waiting.” The desert is a liminal space on the edge of what’s familiar, and it draws and enchants those who dare to walk in its kenotic embrace.

The images are not professionally shot nature photos, but rather the simple snapshots of a lifelong desert walker. The haikus are not literary as much as they are experiential. Mary Oliver sums it up perfectly: "Every day I walk out into the world / to be dazzled, then to be reflective."

David Morrison and Jacob Neria are members of Desert Rain Community, a contemporary community of Christian contemplative monks located outside El Paso in Chaparral, NM.

Living in Sublimity

BY DOZIER BELL
@ VOL 19 ON NOV 15, 2013

Dozier Bell, an artist in Rockland, Maine, elaborates on her drawings that encompass natural and conscious elements of the world. Her artwork, in its simplicity, lessens our human understanding of these natural forces and gives us a greater sense of sublimity to our surroundings.

Alpine Climbing: Quiet Pursuit of the Ridiculous

BY WILL CADELL
@ VOL 1 ON FEB 18, 2014

It doesn’t have to be fun to be fun. It can be the difficulty that defines the experience and the challenges overcome which makes the moments of quiet in the mountain so sublime. Will Cadell explores the Jekyll and Hyde personas of alpine climbers to show that for every Jekyll that complains and wants to quit, there is a Hyde that says, "don't think, keep going."

A Message from Cameron Sinclair

We include here a message from Architecture for Humanity founder Cameron Sinclair that should give everyone a better idea of what the "Global PechaKucha Night for Haiti" event really means, what's at stake, and how you can participate. Haiti Fatigue. It’s a phrase we will begin to hear over the next few weeks. The fact is more people died in Haiti than in the 12 countries affected by the ‘04 Tsunami. Oh, and rainy season begins in 8 days. So this natural disaster IS a big deal and it’s going to get rough. We are not the first responders, we’re the last responders and we’re in for the long haul. We estimate having teams in Haiti for 4 years but we will only do that with the financial support of others. Thanks to the amazing Mark Dytham and Astrid Klein we’re going to change that. We are one week away from launching Pecha Kucha for Haiti – the worlds largest distributed conference. This will be a 24 hour Pecha Kucha (20x20 style) in more than 100 cities – with 2000 presentations. 100% of all donations/proceeds will go towards building schools and community centers in Haiti. I’d love it if you got involved in some way. We are looking for a few more (local) speakers? With more than 100 cities participating there is no need to fly, no dodgy hotel to overnight in and no lost luggage. We’re making all speakers local. You live in NYC, then speak in NYC, If you are in Zilina, Czech – sorry it’s full! | Can’t find your city and are very ambitious? – email Mark Dytham and host one. *personally after doing DLD, Davos and TED, I’m excited by a conference that doesn’t require 1000+ to fly from one corner of the earth to another. Could this be the future of conferences? What does a presentation look like? Maori, The culture of my land Made in Deptford The Story So Far (about PK) Duct Tape Type Face We are looking for ‘virtual’ presentations? So you are busy, we understand. Mark and Astrid have a cunning plan. Thanks to sponsors Ustream and Rackspace we can pre-record a presentation and we can show it as we move around the world. Brian LeBarton (Beck) & Francesco Valentino just composed one – music only. Spare 400 or 20 seconds? You can be brave and do a full 20x20 (20 slides x 20 seconds = 6 min 40 sec) OR if you are really, really busy – just contribute 20 seconds of audio (and we’ll put in a slide). You can just say something like ‘I’m TKTK and do TKTK. I care about creating a sustainable and economically sound future for Haiti. Let’s Build Back Better with Architecture for Humanity.’ OK, what about someone else's time? You all know famous designers, engineers, musicians, artists and other creative spirits. Even celebrities. Admit it. Heck, NYC has Florian Idenburg, Gregg Pasquarelli, Craig Dykers and Iwan Baan to name a few – all talking about what they know best. What’s your city got? Why so serious? Look it is our job to be serious. We are immensely fortunate to work alongside communities and build their hopes and dreams. The work isn’t depressing, it is awesome. If you want to present, please be upbeat and speak on the sublime to the ridiculous. No one wants 24 hours of depressing visions, that’s called CNN. So seriously. Entertain, inspire and most importantly – be passionate. To present email me and I’ll connect you to the right people. To pre-record email Mark Dytham. To attend, show up and make a donation. By the way this email took you 6 min 40 seconds to read. So you do have the time!

Cameron's Message in Spanish

The organizers behind PechaKucha in Bogota were kind enough to translate the message we posted from Architecture for Humanity founder Cameron Sinclair in Spanish. It's online here, and we've posted it below as well -- please share with everyone you know! Fatiga Haitiana Es una expresión que empezaremos a escuchar en las próximas semanas. El hecho es que murió mucha más gente en Haití que en los 12 paises afectados por el tsunami en el 2004. Ah, y la temporada de lluvias comienza en 8 días, así que este desastre natural ES un asunto de gran importancia, y se va a poner peor. No somos los primeros en responder, somos los últimos y estaremos en ello por un buen tiempo. Estimamos que lograr configurar nuestro equipo tardaría unos 4 años, y sólo es posible con el apoyo financiero de otros. Gracias a los increíbles Mark Dytham y Astrid Klein [los fundadores de PechaKucha Night] podemos a cambiar eso. Estamos a una semana del lanzamiento de PechaKucha por Haití, la más grande conferencia distribuída mundialmente. Este será un PechaKucha de 24 horas en más de 100 ciudades, con cerca de 2000 presentaciones y el 100% de las donaciones irán para la construcción de escuelas y centros comunitarios en Haití. Me encantaría que usted se involucrara de algún modo. Estamos buscando algunos presentadores locales más Con más de 100 ciudades participando, no hay necesidad de volar, ni de hoteluchos para pasar una noche, ni de equipajes perdidos. Todos los presentadores son locales. Si usted vive en la ciudad de Nueva York, hable en Nueva York. Si está en Zilina, Checoslovaquia, lo siento: están llenos los cupos! ¿No puede ver su ciudad en el calendario de eventos y es muy ambicioso? ¡escríbale a Mark Dytham y organice uno! [En Bogotá también están llenos los cupos, pero toda ciudad tiene gente creativa: a ver Medellín, a ver, Cali, ¿qué hubo Cartagena? ¿y cómo van los búcaros?] Personalmente, después de hacer DLD, Davos y TED, me entusiasma la idea de una conferencia que no requiere de grandes gastos, ni volar de un rincón a otro del planeta. ¿Será este el futuro de las conferencias? ¿Cómo se ve una presentación en PechaKucha? Maori, The culture of my land Made in Deptford The Story So Far (about PK) Duct Tape Type Face Estamos buscando presentaciones virtuales Así que usted está muy ocupado/a, lo entendemos. Pues Mark y Astrid tienen un plan: gracias al apoyo de Ustream y Rackspace podemos pre-grabar una presentación y mostrarla a medida que nos movemos alrededor del mundo. Brian LeBarton (Beck) y Francesco Valentino ya hicieron una, consistente en una una pieza musical. ¿Tiene 400 o 20 segundos? Usted puede ser valiente y hacer una presentación 20×20 (20 imágenes por 20 segundos cada una = 6minutos 40 segundos) o, si está realmente ocupado, contribuir con 20 segundos de audio (y nosotros ponemos la imagen). Usted puede decir algo como: “Soy Pepito de los Palotes y soy Carpintero. Me interesa crear un futuro sostenible por Haití. Hagámoslo y mejorémoslo con Architecture for Humanity.” Bueno, y acerca del tiempo ajeno Usted conoce gente famosa: diseñadores, ingenieros, músicos, artistas y otros espítirus creativos. Incluso celebridades. ¡Admítalo! Pues en Nueva York tienen a Florian Idenburg, Gregg Pasquarelli, Craig Dykers y Iwan Baan, entre otros, todos hablando de lo que saben hacer. ¿a quién tiene en su ciudad? ¿Por qué tan serio? Mire, nuestro trabajo es ser serios. Somos inmensamente afortunados de trabajar con comunidades y construír sus sueños y esperanzas. Es un trabajo maravilloso, no es deprimente. Si usted se quiere presentar, por favor sea alegre y hable desde lo sublime hasta lo ridículo. Nadie quiere 24 horas de visiones depresivas, que para eso tenemos a los noticieros. En serio. Entretenga, inspire y lo más importante: sea apasionado. Para presentarse escríbame y yo lo conecto con la gente que es. Para pre-grabar escríbale a Mark Dytham Y para asistir, vaya y haga su donación A propósito, leer este correo le tomó 6 minutos 40 segundos, así que usted tiene tiempo!
