Our Rising Oceans

Nothing could be more important.

We’re not reacting fast enough. In many cases, we’re not reacting at all.
Do not be led by men lesser than ourselves.

There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more,
From these our interviews, in which I steal
From all I may be, or have been before,
To mingle with the Universe, and feel
What I can ne’er express, yet cannot all conceal.

-Lord Byron

Opposite to the North

Where beauty coincides with grace, where desert meets the ocean, where few go and many strive to return. To explore, camp, and climb, to watch icebergs roll, see penguins molt, to marry, to acquire a true appreciation for wellies, to ride in zodiacs, feel the swells of the drake passage, to be humbled, to be silenced, to watch seals sleep, whales breach, to witness nature grow and yet stay still, to find a piece of perfection. Antarctica is the most beautiful place on Earth.
