We are but distant observers, unable to control the forces of nature that churn our world. We can only watch helplessly as natural elements meld, shift, rip apart, solidify and liquify. We fool ourselves into thinking our natural landscapes are forever constant, but clearly, the shape and texture of our world is ever-changing. There is a beauty to our folly: there exists an aspect to our world that can still activate our childlike wonder.
