A personal home theater of years past, many showing reruns that had long been forgotten or simply waiting for the right time.My home movies are nightmares that give understanding to my body's reactions.I pass by your obscured, damaged loveliness and wonder why you’re hiding – downcast – faint traces of bruises mar your haggard visage. You remain broken, ashamed and abandoned while Man has moved on to abuse other watery bodies.For years you’ve suffered slights, insults and mockery.Special acquisitions provide decades of enjoyment when cared for in a respectful way, adding to their value and reverence for future generations.And finally, practicing respect for the natural world is essential for the continuance of life on Earth. The purity of the air, the land and the waters must be sustained.

It reminds you to interact with others as you want them to interact with you.
