"How does our intimacy with each other, or lack of intimacy, affect our intimacy with the land? Like death, I think our sensuality is something we're afraid of and we have avoided confronting it. I am interested in taboos, because I believe that's where the power of our culture lies. I love taking off their masks so we can begin to face the world openly.
I believe that will be our healing."
-Terry Tempest Williams
in interview with
David Peterson of The Bloomsbury Review

love the light through the feather and the details. breaking down taboos - a challenging and difficult thing.
