A DAY OF SAILING INTO THE COLLEGE FIORDS: MESMERISING SIGHTS AND AN ALL ENCOMPASSING EXPERIENCE: BLOG #6

How can I find words to explain being surrounded by the splendor of ice packed mountains, reflections, glaciers cascading down in triplets, vivid blues, and small ice bergs in the water looking like miniatures of the their parent glaciers. Also, you have the quietness that light plays and a wonderful tune of, blues intensified, blended greens, pomp of ice covered mountain peaks above the tree line and an all encompassing light, colored, quietness of overwhelming intensity and centeredness comes into the moment.

Being introduced to this brilliance and grandeur on a ship glides you into something you have to process, so you run from side to side and from floor to floor, from front to back to gather as much as you can when someone asked, “What are you doing running back and forth, the captain announced that he would be turning the ship in a slow circle and you will see all of it. “ We settled down and watched the spectacular experience unfold from the comfort of our shipboard home and balcony.

Even though I know we all get photos from the Internet that are so far superior in many aspects to the following, but I submit this experience we have documented and shared. The feelings and the lessons learned from the experience are all individual and personal.

    I love all the photos. It’s still SO SAD to me what the greenhouse effect has done to our beautiful world. So nice that you’re keeping in touch with it all for me.

    Keith, do you think that perhaps the world is aging and that is the effect. When people age they shrink and change, right? Let’s think about it.
