About this item

These poems spring from moments awake to that Life, comprising a partial testament to decades spent in love with wildness. The poems hint at a way of perceiving the world born of felt connection that many mountaineers discover, in which the senses awaken a more essential knowing, the keenly perceived blessings of creatures, elements, original presences, and something indefinably sacred that flows through it all.Our old ancestors lived in intimate connection with the wild, and children have an old instinctive, insatiable curiosity, a wonder for animals, a delight in water, and not long ago grew up roaming woods and streams, or wild tracts. Even after leaving the land and the farms, many people still tended flower and vegetable gardens. Our world these days is increasingly cramped, digital, media-driven, virtual, unrelentingly stimulating and stressful for young and old alike. We forget about nature as a part of ourselves and we lose something essential to our humanity.
