I take no credit for this post. I give all the credit to my mother, who sent me an incredible video; the filmmaker, Louie Schwartzberg, for his inspirational words and vision; and to the natural world around us offering such wonder in will take your breath away.
Just watch the video. There is nothing I can say that can surpass the awe you will experience.
Until next time,
