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 ?
