Nothing That Seems Solid Is

Havasu Falls, July 1998

“The physical reinvention of the world is endless, relentless, fascinating, exhaustive; nothing that seems solid is. If you could stand at just a little distance in time, how fluid and shape-shifting physical reality would be, everything hurrying into some other form, even concrete, even stone."

~ Mark Doty, from Dog Years: A Memoir
