“Encoded in our DNA, encoded in our blood
In the fingerprints of the rock
…and mirrored in the shadows at sunset
Lies the secrets of our ancestors
The lessons we need to heed
The age-old call of the wild
Written in the slate
Engraved in each grain of sand
The sun burning away the dirt
To leave only the long-forgotten language
Encoded in the sand
Encoded in the land
The language of the landscape
Of humans in harmony with nature
In rhythm. In dance. In blood-red of the sand.”
Encoded reminds us of our ancestry, of who we are, of our place in nature and how we are meant to connect with it.
