The Routine of the Irregular

Distance and familiarity, routine and irregularity, displacement and satisfaction…With a casual scan of the horizon, we see rhythm and patterns, while looking more closely, we see details and human organization…rolling irregular ridges of ashen soil and rock, at once chaotic and rhythmic. The people living below see only the hills of home as they set about farming and ordering their landscape. The occasional earthen flows fill the valleys and swell the hills, refreshing the earth and, in the long view, making a routine of the irregular…and still they work to order their landscape and share in the abundant riches of the soil.
