||This is Jack's
third book of Poetography. It continues to bring us the allure
of his photographs and the spirituality that resided secure in
" 'I have set my rainbow in the
clouds' said the Lord, 'and it will be the sign of the covenant
between God and all the living creatures of every kind on the
"I honor clouds. Without them we
would never see a rainbow. Photographically, rainbows are challenges
but so engrossing are they that the photographer keeps trying.
First to meet the challenge and then -- for me, at least -- to
revel in the reminder of their profound significance.
"I was not always a believer. For
too long I was a make-believer, pretending a faith I thought
I should have. It was only once my wife and I had moved and found
ourselves surrounded by nature that I slowly understood. Nature
should no more be capatalized than it should be worshipped. What
should be worshipped is the Maker of nature, the Maker of all.
This book is one more effort on my part to worship.
"Keep the covenant."
