To see a world in a grain of sand

What a bundle of contradictions we humans can seem to be! We want to belong, to be like everyone else, and yet at the same time we desire to be acknowledged and to express our individuality within the larger group.

From Physical Geography to Focus Points in Consciousness

How easy it is to appreciate our world when we find ourselves in natural surroundings where the harmony and living splendour of the planet surpasses any man-made landscape.

We Are Made Of Stardust

It’s been said that we are made of stardust.

Fly Above All Barriers

From villages to cities, it seems that the more densely populated our communities are, the more we humans seek to express in light and the more inspiring and central it becomes to our daily living.
