Together Maia and Ken travel as pilgrims, listening,writing and taking photographs at many sites -- from the arctic tundra,  Everglades, and Smoky Mountains, to the Grand Canyon, Kilauea volcano and the glaciers of Alaska—and beyond.

                        The poetry and images from these places bring us

                       the voice of stone, sea, sky, earth  calling to us:

                                    Awaken      Join the song--  

                           the ongoing prayer of life and breath
