|Giant Swallowtail on Tropical Sage (Salvia coquina)|
Every artist expresses their feelings in a unique way. Some people paint, others write poetry or dance, and some, like Zach, use music. I express myself very literally, using words and photography, but I love and appreciate an artist's ability to turn those emotions into an abstract form. From the first time I heard Zach's composition, I was overwhelmed by the beauty welling up from the rich strings, rising and falling, feeling the sweet optimism and grand spaces, but with a sense of sadness, too. And when I watched the finished version of the video, the beautiful music joined with scenes from the places I know and love, I felt a lump in my throat and tears filled my eyes. I ached for the beauty of those unspoiled places and wanted with all my heart to keep them safe.
Please enjoy and share this magnificent work.
