Welcome! This is a place to share how we celebrate & deepen our relationship to Nature. Here you will find stories, images, & ideas about wilderness, human nature, & soulfulness. Drawing from the experiences of everyday living, the topics on this blog include: forays into the natural world, the writing life, community service, meditation, creativity, grief & loss, inspiration, & whatever else emerges from these. I invite you on this exploration of the wild within & outside of us: the inner/outer landscape.

Love Letter to You

Dear Beloved, 


I hold you closer than ever right now. 


You are afraid. So am I. 


You grieve; me, too. Though, I want to be quick to tell you that I will never pretend that I know your unique experience. 


But I will stay as long as you need while you share with me the stories of the curving, steep, dangerous, desperately sad terrain you have traveled. I will listen with my heart and close my mouth. 


We have work to do. And we can do it together, each in our gifted ways even as we unite in shared passion toward common goals.


I cherish you, dear one. I am here. 



Your Earth-Mate, Fellow Human
