This Terry Tempest Williams quote strikes a chord within me because I feel very connected to nature and wildness and that connection is with me every day of my life. I’m not separate from nature I am part of it. We all are.
I might purposely separate myself from people who affect my life in a negative manner by blocking them out but I can’t fathom blocking out nature. I need it as surely as I need air.
There are those people who can separate themselves from wildness and who connect to money and greed instead but I have to wonder if they are whole. I wonder if they are complete behind the wall they have built to disconnect from wildness, nature and themselves.
I’m back from my trip to extreme southwest Utah and the Mojave Desert, more on that later!
