    This work addresses the natural world and the modern world, and how these worlds co-exist, and how the language of each of these worlds speaks to the human species. We are the youngest species in the world, and we were brought into the natural world and taught how to share and nurture, yet human beings have become the most disrespectful species, despite everything the natural world gives to us. This work attempts to draw attention to humans and remind us all to watch, listen, and reciprocate that which is given to us freely and unconditionally.
