spectators

August, 2017: Traveling through the U.K. & Iceland,

I was fascinated with how humanity is draw to beauty.

Why are we drawn to beauty?

Everyone wants to see it

We line up

We take hours walks, day hikes, long journeys

We climb

We dive into the sky

We work & then book a plane ticket

We'll pay extra money at a roof top bar to see it

We'll make someone wait while we take a photo

This common grace of creation

you can’t help but tell somebody

It reminds me that there is so much more

this longing won’t leave

We write

paint

photograph

speak

sing

to remind each other

of this glimpse of heaven.
