Axis Mundi: This was the first time in my entire life where I felt physically close to God instead of the usual emotional proximity. I finally understood the concept of axis mundi. I felt a deep connection between the sky and earth and it was absolutely liberating. However, I also learned that the feeling of being at the axis mundi can differ from person to person. This shot was taken in Puerto Rico where I was taking care of two little girls and they did not understand at all the joy I felt in this moment because this was essentially in their backyard. It was nothing special to them, and certainly nothing holy.
