"We need wilderness because we are wild animals. Every man needs a place where he can go to go crazy in peace. Every Boy Scout deserves a forest to get lost, miserable, and starving in. Even the maddest murderer of the sweetest wife should get a chance for a run to the sanctuary of the hills. If only for the sport of it. For the terror, freedom, and delirium. Because we need brutality and raw adventure, because men and women first learned to love in, under, and all around trees, because we need for every pair of feet and legs about ten leagues of naked nature, crags to leap from, mountains to measure by, deserts to finally die in when the heart fails."

Edward Abbey

"Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems."

where do you go?
where in those dreams
those thoughts
do you drift?
you go alone
do you ever wish
another could share
share that place
that secret place
I admire

Sacredness devoured upon our meeting
meeting of the eyes
the mind
sacred indeed
never such a feeling before
never imagined
not even in those dreams
those sacred dreams

smell the earth
it waits for you
it's crying
crying out
for your attention
attention to the details
the details that surround
they surround you now
don't ignore
let go
smell the earth
it waits
that light
that desert light
that glow
that desert glow
on the horizon
above and below
I love that light
that magic light
that magic seldom seen
