The natural world is both honest and unforgiving, a paradox of wondrous beauty and harsh reality. Its laws are immutable and changed only by a greater nature. It commands our respect and governs our lives. It humbles me and I find it endlessly inspiring. Time and time again, ancient geological processes have made and remade the earth giving us breathtaking form and life-defining function. In a word… art. I am but a purveyor of the artist.
