All life on this planet depends on earth, it nurtures us through the soil beneath our feet. However, it can be a destructive force as well. Seismic activity and mudslides have shaped the landscape for millions of years and taken a toll on living beings as well. We are in an era of tremendous change in the earth as well, due to shifting balances brought on by human activity.
