Words - William Wordsworth

What about the bird? How was this Helmeted Guinea Fowl awe inspiring? The awe in this moment consisted of the sensitivity of the encounter. Awe is not necessarily about physical scale because it can be the tenderness of a moment also. Here we rounded a corner in the Upper Wye Valley and were confronted with the Guinea Fowl perched on a wall. Any sudden movement and it would have bolted away from this ideal posture. Therefore It was that sensitivity in the moment that created the awe, the effect of which was increased when it flapped its wings.

As well as beautiful rivers, mountains, flowers, music and people be in Awe of our climate. Click to view.

Awe is good - it can galvanize us into action. The River Wye is being impacted on as are other natural wonders by climate change. To assist even the quality of our waters and air litterally do something small. It's permissable in the future to be in awe of our collective achievements. Choose a green outdoor gear item, recycle a bit, purchase some organic food, turn off that light, cycle or use public transport or choose ethical travel. It all matters because put simply we want to be healthy and to continue being in awe of the planets beauty and crucially know we are contributing.
