    A new proposal for National Geographic’s Expedition Granted ZERO provides an opening, a building, where on entering you are reminded of the beauty of being human.

  • There Was Earth in Them

    [Poem] There was Earth in them, and they dug. They dug and they dug, and so their Day went by, and their Night. And they did not praise God, who, so they heard, wanted all this, who, so they heard, knew of all this. They dug and they heard nothing more; did not grow wise,… Continue Reading
