There’s an energy in the land here; they actually have a name for it. It’s called “Mana”. And it’s like the power of the “Aina”; of the land.
And I don’t always feel it. Or I’m not always aware of it, because I get very busy 10 months of the year, frantically shooting, and trying to remember things. And trying not to get caught up in politics, you know.
But then when I stop, mainly in the off-seasons, I can go somewhere quiet, like this, and sort of tap back into it. And that’s what inspires me out here.
This place is very special. It’s a very special part of the world.
