It seems pointless talking about feeling alive. The very notion that one tries to explain it is contradictory. Yet, why is it so rare that we truly feel alive? It seems we are caught in a web of expectations, pressures and the noise of "life". But is it life? Or is it white noise, chatter, an idea of what life should be? When I am out in the field shooting, I feel that aliveness come up and I am in awe. My mind becomes quiet, and nature determines what life is.
