Shower time

Shower time

After the daily work sampling a section… nothing better than a “shower” with cold, muddy water. Although far from the comfortable bathroom at home, I miss it ๐Ÿ™‚

Absence of sound

Absence of sound

Have you ever experienced a complete or almost complete absence of sound?
I had few opportunities in my life to experience something really close to complete silence. One was last August when I was in Greenland collecting samples for my research. The arctic tundra and landscape, and the lack of any human trace allow to experience a deep connection with oneself, body, mind and soul.

I miss this silence, the stillness of thoughts, the contemplation of nature.

I took this photo by the end of August in East Greenland at about 71ยบ North.
