The Link Between Landscape and Diaspora

The Link Between Landscape and Diaspora

“My observations of nature sparked adventures into landscape and history, and it was in bearing witness to these injustices that I found language. And observation and description are at the root of bearing witness: it is about saying, in the face of the machinations of power to twist and deny its brutality, this is what I see. It is a simple act, but also a powerful one, for it cuts through facades and illusions to assert what we can plainly see for ourselves. It affirms the truths of our lives.” More in this stunning essay, titled, “How Bearing Witness to Nature Helped Me Delve Into History,” by writer Teow Lim Goh. { read more }
