A view from the Sun: #5 Shaping change as it happens

Confluence Journey rs

We saw a new world below us. Our thoughts, feelings and intentions were projected on its surface in multicolor array, as if land masses, seas, inlets, peninsulas, islands, mountains, valleys, rivers, lakes and tributaries constituted a geography of human meaning.
