Dream Scenario: A Photo Study of Ideas

The colors startled me when I rediscovered the photograph above, reminding me of the day I captured this orange rose through veils of sunlight. If I recall correctly, it graced someone's yard and I seized the opportunity for a photo. I had recently purchased camera equipment and decided to pursue photography, as an adjunct to writing and drawing. Looking back, the old images evoke numerous ideas, as if photography had been an invitation to deeper thinking more than a celebration of art. With this in mind, let's engage in an exciting (and eclectic) photo study. Light and Shadow: Chicano Park i ..read more

The Majesty on High: Regarding the Lord Jesus Christ in his Time (KJV)
A. M. Palmer, Literary Non-fiction
by A. M. Palmer

The other day, I considered various aspects of Christian faith, mainly in relation to prophetic fulfillment. With that, I thought about the remarkable character of the Lord, who lived as the most courageous and self-sacrificing man in history, blessing the world and all that he created, the only Savior of mankind. As the author of creation, and the finisher of faith to those who are redeemed by his blood, the Lord Jesus Christ (who is the King of kings and Lord of lords) walked among the people of his time, teaching and presenting the gospel. Then, when the hour arrived, he was crucified acco ..read more

Park Ranger Palmer, Retired: My Recollections of the Urban Realm
A. M. Palmer, Literary Non-fiction
by A. M. Palmer
2w ago
Essay 1: A Red Car Arrives As many of my readers know, I spent two decades as a park ranger for the City of San Diego, during which time I enjoyed numerous adventures in the urban realm. While many careers can be peacefully forgotten in retirement, law enforcement occupations cannot, often needing to be shared for public awareness as well as personal healing. For both of these reasons, I have started a new essay series which will offer periodic glimpses into my patrol life. Are you ready? I do hope so. After my relationship with management began to deteriorate, and a position at Chollas Lake P ..read more

A Green Interlude: Oregon Digressions
A. M. Palmer, Literary Non-fiction
by A. M. Palmer
2w ago
My adventures as a full-time RV nomad continue as I conclude my stay in Silver Lake, Oregon, a place unto itself. The first cutting of hay has been left to dry, meadow grass as well as alfalfa, according to innumerable seasons of farm life. If anything gives hope to the fallen structures of Silver Lake, it's the relative health of agriculture in the region. I considered this on a walk through the high desert breeze, during which I greeted the property owner. I chatted with my summer landlord as she planted tomatoes and wondered about the condition of Biden's mind. She asked if I had seen the ..read more

An Unknown Atmosphere: Regarding Silver Lake, Oregon
A. M. Palmer, Literary Non-fiction
by A. M. Palmer
3w ago
Disturbing items dangled from a forest tree, otherwise splendid in its location: dolls, the skeletons of long-departed dogs, clothing, desiccated boots lashed to the trunk by their laces, and, no less, a sense of ancient sorrow. And there, in the late morning, in the shadows cast by human darkness, stood two men. They had originally intended to fish a local reservoir and camp adjacent to the forest, exploring the region on foot. However, upon encountering the horrifying scene, and noting the symbols carved into the bark of a hapless pine, their plans changed. So, how did we arrive at this poi ..read more

Entering Idaho: A View on American Studies
A. M. Palmer, Literary Non-fiction
by A. M. Palmer
1M ago
I spent a few days exploring Provo, Utah and proceeded to Idaho through the beauty of early June, graced by sunlight and delighted by the well-maintained highways that lead north. Yes, I was excited. Although I enjoy the desert sunsets of winter--skies illuminated by distant fire, shades of pink that challenge even the greatest painters--lush farmland provides a change of pace, for which I am grateful. During the drive, I had time to consider the landscape of Idaho along with certain authors I've been reading, two of whom tell a frightening tale.

Regarding the Fields at Rest: A Traveler's Reflections
A. M. Palmer, Literary Non-fiction
by A. M. Palmer
1M ago
As spring unfolds, local farmers prepare their fields with care, each movement of earth and machine choreographed to embrace the season. My neighbors warn of the days ahead, when heat and mosquitos will impose their rites of summer, as emerging alfalfa crops absorb the sun. Curious and delighted, I glance across the street each evening to behold the fields at rest, as they mark cycles of growth and decay. Now, I digress for a moment to reflect on Seneca, whose image you see pictured above, nestled amid scattered thoughts. Search your memory: how seldom you have had a consistent plan, how few ..read more

Tessa: An Update on my Dog's Condition
A. M. Palmer, Literary Non-fiction
by A. M. Palmer
1M ago
As many of you know, my dogs and I were attacked by a pit bull last week, an animal of roughly 80 pounds and considerable viciousness. Having never seen such a massive and truly horrifying specimen before, I was curious and wished to make certain that I had identified it correctly. With that, I checked and was able to verify that the dog was indeed a pit bull. Tessa's vet confirmed that she regularly sees pit bulls that are 90 to 100 pounds, a far cry from the breed that became popular with gang members during the 1990s. At any rate, the important thing is that Tessa received her follow-up ve ..read more
