These short poems & quasi-essays are experiments & explorations. I also merge pictures and text to create a third meaning from the two. Like Nietzsche I want to say in 30 words or less what others take hundreds to say. I am both a photographer and a writer and my visual and written work have been widely published. Text, design & research by me, Rick Doble unless otherwise noted. Images are from commons.wikimedia.org unless otherwise noted.

I Think, Therefore I Am
What Is Existence?
What does it mean to be? To say I am?
This Haiku-like blog is the sequel to the previous blog:
A Chorus of Frogs After the Rain (just below this one)

I think, therefore I am.
Also: Cogito ergo sum. Je pense, donc je suis.
Portrait of Rousseau dressed in an Armenian outfit.
I feel, therefore I am.
(a distillation of Rousseau's thought)
I continue, therefore I am.
Yet even more fundamental than thought or feeling is that awake or asleep we continue and keep on going as long as we exist.
