my weekly posting normally consists of a poem, a quote and a passage from literature, but I am paring down, simplifying,and will just include a quote each week for the summer months.
"It's a different kind of world to grow up in when you're out in the forest with the little chipmunks and the great owls. All these things are around you as presences, representing forces and power and magical possibilities of life that are not yours and yet are all part of life, and that opens it out to you. Then you find it echoing in yourself, because you are nature." ~ Joseph Campbell
