TOTTORI, JAPAN IMAGES: COSMIC LONELINESS

canta 109

“In the beginning, God created the earth, and he looked upon it in his cosmic loneliness.

And God said, “Let Us make living creatures out of mud, so the mud can see what We have done.” And God created every living creature that now moveth, and one was man. Mud as man alone could speak. God leaned close to mud as man sat, looked around, and spoke. “What is the purpose of all this?” he asked politely.

“Everything must have a purpose?” asked God.

“Certainly,” said man.

“Then I leave it to you to think of one for all this,” said God.

And He went away.”

The Tottori sand dunes (鳥取砂丘 Tottori sakyū) are in Western Japan. The dunes have existed for over 100,000 years. They were created by sediment deposits carried from the Chūgoku Mountains by the Sendai River into the Sea of Japan.  (wiki)
