“Vision looks inward and becomes duty. Vision looks outward and becomes aspiration. Vision looks upward and becomes faith.”
Stephen S. Wise ~Austro-Hungarian-born U.S. Reform rabbi and Zionist leader. (1874 -1949)...
National Geographic Adventure west coast editor Steve Casimiro posted this item to his web site The Adventure Life. "Signatures is not ski pornography, and thank god for it," he writes. "The new ski/snowboard/telemark movie is a sonnet, or maybe a love letter, an unabashedly romantic, even tender, look at a life spent sliding on snow, this time in Hokkaido, Japan." The images are spectacular. With plenty of days left until summer and with fall hardly on the horizon, it's kind of nice to look forward to the coming ski season. The film Signatures premieres September 19th. Stay in touch for a Joy Trip Project film review shortly thereafter.
Everybody needs beauty as well as bread, places to play in and pray in, where nature may heal and give strength to body and soul alike. This natural beauty hunger is made manifest in our magnificent National Parks nature's sublime wonderlands, the admiration and joy of the world
