‘Rock and water, frost and sun; I speak of in-animate things, but the land is a living being.’ It shapes us as we shape it- it’s life glimpsed at through the converging channels, the meandering veins of its rocks and the squat, stringy roots of timeless endurance, buried within the soil; its sinews. The landscape’s pattern of being.
