THE Land of Moinee

seeking the spirit of nature in tasmania

 

A wave crashes, like thunder booming, upon the edge of the world. Her kind have been crashing here for time immemorial. Misty spray of the break raises, drifts and falls, settling on my face. I shiver as the cold wet water meanders slowly into droplets leaking down my neck…I plunge into the river, shock racks my warm body from the icy water, only freshly unfrozen from the mountain pinnacles above. My path lays beyond and my shivering, shaking, shuddering legs, so weak and tired force their way forward. Can I reach the peak?…I take refuge in my small tent. This mountain has taken life, and given it. Heavenly whiteness blinds my sensibilities as the blizzard seeks to crush my spirit. I am so small and fragile, a leaf wavering in a storm. My tent ropes snap under the crack of the wind…I scream atop the mountain as the clouds part for the briefest of moments. Sun touches my skin, and disappears as quickly as it appeared. I see once more my path to home…

When looking out upon the grandiosity of nature, the great mountains, powerful streams and violent storms of snow and lightening, I am reminded of my own fragility. The subtle nature of my life's brief moments of breath taken in in so short a time. In its power I discover myself, and nature's reflection through me. I am but an ebb, another ripple in the pond of this grand spirit of nature unfolding infinitely…

I have been seeking for eternity. Finally, I see it.
