Those who contemplate, the beauty of the Earth, find reserves of strength, that will endure as long as life lasts. - Rachel Carson
Through our eyes, the Universe is receiving itself. Through our ears, the Universe is listening to it's harmonies. We are the witnesses through which the Universe becomes conscious of it's glory, of it's magnificence. - Alan Watts
When we contemplate the whole globe as one great dewdrop, striped and dotted with continents and islands, flying through space with other stars all singing and shining together as one, the whole universe appears as an infinite storm of beauty.
In summer, the song sings itself. - William Carlos Williams
Ocean is more ancient than the mountains, and freighted with the memories, and the dreams of Time. - H. P. Lovecraft
My Coastal Vision - Elemental Beauty
Wilsons Promontory & the Inverloch coast offer an encounter with elemental beauty in all it’s sublime primal power. It is timeless, grounding, invigorating, inspiring, expansive.
Wilsons Prom in particular, is an experience of deep time, analogue time, an encounter with the slow, silent, seemingly eternal….a sensory experience of tea tree scent, light, darkness, shadows, wind, and sounds….a total sensory experience….elemental.
Andy Goldsworthy speaks to something about stone that could well be about the elemental beauty, and power of Wilsons Promontory:
A stone changes the place with it’s presence, with time tilling it and flowing around it, just as a sea or river rock affects the surrounding water by creating waves, pools and currents.
