The Poles are unforgiving and hostile places, meant to humble us and remind us that we exist in a fragile and precarious pale blue dot in space. When I am there I understand that I am of this Earth that it is my only home and that it shelters me from the dark cold void of the great space around us. — Camille Seaman
