Finding Beauty in a Broken World
This picture is from the Spring/Summer edition of Kosmos magazine.
Terry Tempest Williams was interviewed about her book, Finding Beauty in a BrokenWorld, and this is a segment of that interview: "I watched prairie dogs every day rise before the sun, stand with their paws pressed together facing the rising sun in total stillness for up to 30 minutes. And then I watched them at the end of the day take that same gesture 30 minutes before the sun goes down. They would press their palms together in perfect stillness. I don't mean to anthropomorphize, but when you look at a creature that has survived over the millennium begin and end each day in that kind of stance, it causes one to think about one's own life and the speed and rapidity in which we live."
