PHOTOVOICE
Facilitator: Trischa Goodnow

“I felt deep within me that the highest point a man can attain is not Knowledge or Virtue or Goodness or Victory but something even greater, more heroic and more despairing: Sacred Awe!”

In the last couple of months we’ve seen a total eclipse of the sun and the Northern lights further South than they’ve been in a while – truly awesome sights.
