Its Spring and there is something joyful in the arrival of that seasonal immigrant. On April 5, 1909, two acrobatic workers from a Japanese-American logging crew celebrated on the massive stump of an ancient cedar, capturing in their handstands both the greatness and smallness of their work. Asahel Curtis took this photograph in a sunny clearing deep in the Skagit County woods locking in a moment in time- the performer a jubilant gnomon and his shadow the mark of the hour on a freshcut sundial. How many hours went into in the cutting and how many centuries passed in the growing? Neither matter in the moment I’m sure.
