"Rocked in the Arms of Earth" is the feeling of being held by the earth. The sound of wind through the grass, the dew and blades pressed into your shirt, the smell of cold soil against your skin and the peach color of the sun through your eyelids. My love for the landscape is deeply rooted, not only in being so familiar, but for the histories it carries, the life it has held.
