In the Cathedral  They had been calling me, for two years. Then, they lured my son. Now I am here, and I am in awe…. in awe of the magnitude of their presence.  All else is diminished in the company of these ancient Sequoias. Their elegant grandeur is witness to the continuum of time. What […]

In the rainforest of Ecuador, the indigenous Kichwa have a word that they use in reference to themselves. The word is  ‘Runa’.
