In every outthrust headland, in every curving beach, in every grain of sand there is the story of the earth.

Zach Pine: Life Practice

Oct 5, 2018-- "Well, when I'm out alone at the beach, the first time I scoop up the sand in my hands, that's one magical kind of connection. It's like tasting a food you've never tasted. You have no idea what to expect, all you know is its food. You might think sand it's just sand, but this is not the way I experience it. If I pick up sand at a beach I've never been at, right away, I get all kinds of experiences: what the grains are like, what the color is like, what the proportion of water is in it, and even the scent of it sometimes. And all those things influence my ability to make a sand globe out of the sand I'm holding." Zach Pine is an M.D. turned environmental artist who is committed to bringing people closer to the earth.
