Domenika is a 12,000 word lyrical poem inspired during my studies in environmental sustainability.
Studying the Earth's ecosystems provoked a deep curiosity about how the cyclicality of nature mirrors the development of the mind.
Continuous birth, destruction, death, and renewal of natural systems are the same mechanisms within an evolving psyche.
For me, sustainability also inspired a moral development, more than any other religion or mythology has communicated.
Domenika is my attempt to communicate sustainable development through archetypal dream images.
While noting the suffering and loss of clearing the old to make way for the new, Domenika is mostly about hope, healing, renewal, love, and celebrating the force within all life.
