lara birk

my first word was "out". perched on my dad's shoulders, i pointed to the mountain trail ahead, "out." my family put hiking and nature in my blood, but a serious injury has taught me that "out" is more about perspective than geography. each moment unfolds before us, humbly laying bare the intimate secrets of its ephemeral beauty. i find deep joy and stillness in the dance of light and shadow, the sparkling waters, the quiet snow, the soft petal, and the shining birch.
