Seasons are all about change.
Change can be exciting or daunting depending on the circumstances. In some of the worlds harshest climates it can also be extremely dangerous.
The seasonal change from Winter to Spring in the Canadian Rockies can be one of those times.
Our experience with change is a moment I will never forget… Hiking into the Plain of Six Glaciers, we witnessed mother nature at her rawest. An avalanche no more than a mile in front of us. The ground shook and the ice cracked – it’s a sound I will never forget. We missed capturing the event as it came out of the blue, however some of our friends caught the same location on film!
This was an intoxicating moment in our lives, and we were so very lucky that we weren’t nearer to the cascading ice.
As a metaphor I see this his seasonal change as representing the human character. As we take so much on in life – be it financial, emotional or physical commitments, sometimes we overload ourselves and cracks start to form…The more and more we load on ourselves the more dangerous it becomes – until …. a collapse!
