It's been quite some time my friend. No matter how much time passes by it is always good to catch up with you. I'm not sure which season we last spoke but having spent time together with you in all four seasons, I can say for certain that you are as magnificent as ever!
As I stood looking out at this beautiful sunset I noticed a cigarette butt resting at my feet. I sometimes find a stray wrapper or misplaced article of clothing. But a cigarette butt?! I did a double take I was so surprised.
What if we thought about all of our wild places like a dear friend? I am curious if the idea of friendship would change the way we think about, interact with, and take care of our natural world.
