In my continuing exploration of the elements, this time “earth” I realized that for me the earth is a dynamic element as the sulfur and iron-oxyde rich volcanic boiling muds such as the one found in Dallol volcano in Ethiopia. This is how I see the earth, a source of life, of transformation, of transmutation.
Mark Twain is credited to having said “Don’t go around saying the world owes you anything. The world owes you nothing. It was here first.” The power of volcanoes is a very good cure for an enflated ego!
