Like me, -should you live in a temperate latitude of towering vegetation, but feel compelled to explore mountainous, glacially-ravaged & foreboding landscapes....
-If you're fascination for wild beasts acknowledges respect, but not at the expense of fear....
-If you're awed by surveying vast horizons, yet appreciate that such openness also accommodates weather so enveloping, it can render an outstretched a ghostly apparition....
-If you do not characterize Winter by its hardships....but instead revel in it's contrasts and rise to its challenges as a measure of will....
What I mean is....
-If you're curiously drawn to the environments and creatures indicative of the far North...
In other words....
-If the ARCTIC is in your blood, instinct and memory you can't see, but definitely feel...
Welcome home, my friend.
(Because it's much too immense for us to initiate the grasp)...
"Arctic Dreams" ....WILL EMBRACE YOU.
