"It's better to light one candle than curse the darkness."

If taking pictures of the Earth is like the Earth taking pictures of itself, I am like nature taking videos of nature. I want to live in harmony with the birds and the trees, and play in the lakes and the leaves. Every choice I consider environmental consequence, is this affecting rainforests in Indonesia? I only cry when things are illogical. Most times I'm filled with joy, but I can't sit around and enjoy myself, I feel I need to give back and work hard for mother earth. Somewhere at the intersection of art and activism.
 
Each snowflake forms around a particle of dust. Each forms with sixfold symmetry. But no two are alike. The wandering Albatross is the bird with the largest wingspan and needs the perfect wind to fly. They wander around for months before the right wind comes.
Everybody gets something from the mountains. A type of spirit that makes you a better person. Filling up the gaps in our lives until our souls are white hot and burning full.
