The sublime experience of awe renders total inner silence. Interestingly we begin to experience sensation in a new way: colors take on a new vibrancy, sound is sensual, nature’s magical abundance uncovered. I discovered a world inverted and upside down in Patagonia and Syria. The natural world of the Middle East revealed limitless variation of seemingly narrow pallet. Patagonia’s rushing winds, expansive, rich and verdant ecosystems uncovered shrouded personal truths that howled with the same urgency to be heard and honored.
