Modernity is Fractured. Our beliefs are fractured, our minds are fractured, & our daily lives leave us feeling disconnected.

Rather than experiencing life as one part of a bigger plan, We become trapped as the gods of the tiny world inside our mental snow globes. But there is more. There is a life beyond the self, a beauty beyond us, a truth outside of us. There is more.
