A nearby colony of penguins sang, danced, and worked to the rhythm of their lives. We looked up into the cloudless sky and listened. The palms of our mittened hands rested on the cold snow as we leaned into the embrace of the hill. We were perfectly in the moment. No distractions, no worries, no plans, no past, and no future. Just us and the immensity of Antarctica. Then we knew. Tears rushed from our eyes as the realization shook us. That sound. It was the beat of Earth’s heart.
Penguin Parables is a compilation of epiphanies, stories, photographs, and lessons learned while on an epic adventure to Antarctica. It is the authors’ ode to planet Earth and their call to protect her, humanity’s Eden. So grab a parka, bring your sense of adventure, and join them for the journey.
