The whole view


Here is the full length view of Cataract Falls -- hardly a cataract. I think we are often better off with a limited view, even though it annoys us.

Words to walk with:
From The Future by Les Murray
"There is nothing about it. Much science fiction is set there
but it is not about it. Prophecy is not about it.
It sways no yarrow stalks. And crystal is a mirror.
Even the man we nailed on a tree for a lookout
said little about it; he told us evil would come.
We see by convention, a small living distance into it
but even that's a projection. And all our projections
fail to curve where it curves."

  1. The sound of falling water is magic and appreciated by most. I also looks nice.
