(Embracing Despair, Discovering Peace) Hiroyuki Itsuki: ?In this terrible world of ours, all that counts is that you mentally clasp your hands in gratitude and say your thanks for being alive. Do this every day; do this to keep yourself aware and open whether you are in the grip of terrible suffering or are experiencing boundless joy.?
The Torcal is a Nature Reservoir in Andalusia, Spain. High up the mountains it is an endless maze of rocks pointing upwards, there is an eerie silence only broken by the voice of the wind. This is a haven for rare plants and wildlife.
