Mountain, mine. is an exploration of the relationship between the natural world and our inner world. Using poetry, prose, and monologue, this audio piece will capture vignettes of individual stories. A forest walker will plant seeds for the future; a deep-sea diver will encounter an underwater creature; at the turn of the century, a young person walks to the beach to find the ancient man. Mountain, mine. explores how we use story and myth on an individual level to relate to the natural world and its healing effects.
