Summer greeting

Hope you had wonderful Fourth of July holidays.

Summer heat begins on the fourth of July, Independence Day.
Sun stays until 8:00 pm, music plays with the sizzle of barbecue in the garden,
The restaurant windows open up and people gather around the table by the sidewalk in the warm night of summer.

For the past 7 days, I went to Baxter State Park in Maine,
I was hiking out into the vast wilderness.
On terrain that was elevated 400 million years ago,
a 809 km2 park with a stunning mountain range.
Above all, the huge rocks of the famous Katadin Mountain (1,605 m),
beautiful and dignified.
This place is also the northern terminus of the 2190 miles long Appalachian Trail.
I was moved by seeing the hikers finish the final climb, from all the lengths of the trail.

7 days away from everyday life, my thoughts focused on unknown worlds and interacted the magnificent power of nature.

The insight, this memory, becomes a form in some way, and I believe it will fall into my work.
I hope to share it with you in future.
Thank you and have a nice summer!
