I came upon this wonderful piece of writing The Auguries of Innocence, over at Under Our Boot Soles. Give it a read and enjoy the humor, provocation of thought about nature and what is wild. Most people that visit this site are hell bent on getting as far from human contact as possible while wetting a line. Yet, I think most are equally capable of patiently indulging the back yard garden, tending to some live planting or admiring the changing leaves in a city park. It is good we slow down enough to enjoy the present rather than suffer wanderlust so often we look past the beauty, the ‘wilderness’ that was before us. Enjoy the link and be thankful if you don’t suffer hot flashes, because your Summers will be filled with relentless air conditioning and your Winters with open windows.
