Quito from the Mountaintop

Rizbuth "The universe is apparently a self-creating entity. We were engineered by the environment of which we are part, preceded only by an impulse to be, the source and trajectory of which remain unrevealed, at best, conjectural."


Of Wheels and Weaves

Wheels spin 
like time itself 
shuttling tourists,
the Teleferico  -
built to showcase 
a local culture 
a country,
a genius,
to worldwide markets, 
turning cables,
spinning Inca, 
into global fabric 
still evolving 
on shifting techtonics,
as we plunge back to Quito
with whatever we have learned.
