Conversations with Nature: Deborah Kaplan - LENSCRATCH

“(Today) we are talking only to ourselves. We are not talking to the rivers, we are not listening to the wind and stars. We have broken the great conversation. By breaking that conversation we have shattered the universe. All the disasters that are happen
