Preservation

In wildness is the preservation of the world.

Thoreau

So that they will respect the land, teach your children that the earth is rich with the lives of our kin……THIS WE KNOW: The earth does not belong to us; we belong to the earth. This we know. All things are connected.

Chief Seattle

On this day, at this morning hour, I celebrate and give thanks for 67 years of life on this earth, surrounded by wildness and green growing life. This is the story of my life: a love of all things green and growing, of land & sea, of mountains and valleys, of family & friends, fine art and faith. This year, this new number comprised of the birth dates of my children (6/6 and 7/7), will be a continuing celebration in honor of the richness they have brought me, the challenges and freedoms born of sharing this earth with my children.
