A Note From The Artist:

"A human being is a part of the whole called by us universe, a part limited in time and space. He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling as something separated from the rest, a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness. This delusion is a kind of prison for us, restricting us to our personal desires and to affection for a few persons nearest to us. Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison by widening our circle of compassion to embrace all living creatures and the whole of nature in its beauty." - Albert Einstein

I was in Mariposa Grove early one morning during a visit to the Yosemite National Park. The sun was bright and the sky was as blue as it can be. Nevertheless, it felt a bit nippy under the canopy of giant sequoia trees.

Morning dews had formed as the result of condensation overnight due to the cold temperature. Although it hadn't rain, the forest floor felt moist with every footstep. A gentle breeze swayed the leaves and sprinkled the glistening dew as if it was drizzling. As the water droplets touch the soil, a chain of chemical events occurred that lead to the release of an earthy scent - petrichor. There is something very primitive and primal about the peculiar yet familiar smell as it evokes an innate emotion of nature connectedness that lies deep in our core.
