... The Ocean...

Mahaulepu Coast, Kauai

Like a Ship in the midst of the Ocean... Coasting... The Waves. The Colors. The Sounds... Absorbing resonating images... Nick Lane, a biochemist and a writer, tells the story of alkaline hydrothermal vents. These vents sit at the bottom of oceans where water meets rock. Their architecture and chemistry makes them one of the very few natural environments that can support the creation of early life. And, as it stands right now, they are, most likely, our cradles. The places where it all began 4 billion years ago... Looking at the Ocean... I wonder... Can it be that trillions of my cells feel this rolling blueness to be our Home ?

Mahaulepu Coast: ... like a ship...

Mahaulepu Coast: ... the waves...

Mahaulepu Coast: ... the colors...

Mahaulepu Coast: ... to infinity...

Mahaulepu Coast: ... rolling...

Mahaulepu Coast: ... into the cliffs...

Mahaulepu Coast: ... I wonder...

Memories...

Larsen's Beach, Kauai

Crystalline Turquoise... and The Sand... Minuscule particles of rocks and corals... Monk Seal Mom and Pup sleeping over there. In Peace and Quiet... Raining on the Horizon... The Ocean...

Larsen's Beach: ... crystalline turquoise...

Larsen's Beach: ... and the sand...

Larsen's Beach: ... where waves leave traces...

Larsen's Beach: ... and monk seals rest...

Larsen's Beach: ... in peace and quiet...

Larsen's Beach: ... and trees come closer...

Larsen's Beach: ... bringing shadows along...

Larsen's Beach: ... keeping...

Larsen's Beach: ... raining...

Larsen's Beach: ... on the horizon...

Larsen's Beach: ... the ocean...

Sleeping...

Larsen's Beach, Kauai

Hopping back in Time... Warm and Windy... Monk Seal sleeping... The Ocean's sweet lullaby...

Larsen's Beach: ... the Ocean's sweet lullaby...

Reminders

Fells Reservation, Massachusetts

Through soggy browns. And mossy greens... to the Waterfall. Frozen in time. Coming at me... All alone ice-land... a reminder of the times passed...

Fells: ... frozen in time...

Fells: ... coming at me...

Fells: ... and then stops...

Fells: ... falling...

Fells: ... all alone reminder...

Coming Closest

Cambridge, Massachusetts

Today is a Special Day. When the Moon is closest. And his face fully illuminated... With clear skies, appears even closer... a long way from Home...

... a long way from Home...

Cambridge: ... yet so close...

In Defrosting Mode

Fells Reservation, Massachusetts

Deep freeze had lasted... and passed. It is warm, above 10°C (50°F). And the Sun makes it feel like Spring. Fells is in Defrosting Mode. Streams dissolving their ice-coats. Burbling vivaciously...  Translucent sculptures holding onto the rocks... Mosses are waking-up. Quickly absorbing water from the snow. Opening their teeny leaves to the Sun. Infusing the forest with bright tints of life... Lichens and Fungi refreshed. Tree Buds tightly closed... No, Trees will not be duped into the idea that this Winter is over.

Fells: ... in defrosting mode...




Fells: ... holding onto the rocks...

Fells: ... water and the Sun... lift Spirits...

Fells: ... and infuse the forest with tints of Life...

Fells: ... ways...

Fells: ... artfully softened...

Fells: ... and sprinkled...

Fells: ... sparkles dripping...

Fells: ... refreshing...

Fells: ... dissolving...

Fells: ... tightly closed... this Winter is not over...

Observing...

Fresh Pond, Cambridge, Massachusetts

Red-Tailed Hawk sitting up-there. Watching the World from above... Observing... The Eyes to catch. The Beak to kill... Fearful Face. Yet so Magnetic...

Fresh Pond: Sitting up-there

Fresh Pond: Watching the World from above
