LEY LINES: ISLAND OF ELIN by Gloria Rivera
\”To observe is to know.\”
Elin, a naturalist, helps a photographer discover the wonder of observation. A short narrative with underpinnings based on the ideology of the Hudson Valley painters (19th century), and largely inspired by the writings of John Muir and the life of Jean Rabin Audubon (two naturalists).
Gloria Rivera is a comic artist and painter raised in the suburbs of southern California, now residing in Santa Ana, California.

John Muir (April 21, 1838 – December 24, 1914) also known as “John of the Mountains” and “Father of the National Parks”, was an influential Scottish-American naturalist, author, environmental philosopher, and early advocate for the preservation of wilderness in the United States of America. Muir is highly regarded in the world of literature despite his writing having been for love, rather than for academia.
