Curated Collection #2
When I was younger, my reading diet consisted of primarily fiction all day, every day. It was only when I entered college that I began enjoying reading non-fiction as well, alternating between the two as I chose my next read.
Recently I finished H is For Hawk by Helen McDonald, a writer and naturalist, who describes her training of a young goshawk. While the book focuses on her relationship with her goshawk Mabel, it is also about Helen's grief over the loss of a family member. I admit it took me awhile to engage deeply with H is for Hawk, but McDonald's descriptive language of the English countryside provides the inspiration for this curated collection. It is a book worth reading to reflect on the human condition and our relationship with the natural world.
The collection of images below focus primarily on landscapes and dense, overlapping colors.
