Home Away From Home             Over the past few weeks I have seen and experienced the multitude of emotions that come in visiting a new country. I have been in wonderment of the typical sights, sounds, and day to day exploits that come with the prospect of visiting somewhere new, but there is something I […]

Golden Graces

  Golden Graces   I have never seen such contradiction in one place. Grey parallel bodies of limestone rock breathe at the earth’s surface, finally. They appear to weigh down the land and harness any possible color that could blossom there. But when I peer closer, soft carpets of green and reaching fingers of thorns […]

Becca Nelson – Final Project
