The Standing Now
Though Bob Fergeson lives in the Southern United States and Shawn Nevins in the East, their creative wanderings share a common theme: the standing now.
"Nunc fluens facit tempus, nunc stans facit aeternitatem."
The passing now makes time, the standing now makes eternity.
It is the moment we all share, when our self-concern is swept away by the wispy hems of clouds, the bone branches of an ancient evergreen, or the cool, impassive face of an alpine lake—when a pause in the passing now of our short lives reveals eternity.
