Happy New Year!
As 2009 brings us much hope and inspiration, I wanted to share this thought:
The West of which I speak is but
another name for the Wild, and what
I have been preparing to say is, that
in Wildness is the preservation of
the World. Every tree sends its
fibers forth in search of the Wild.
The cities import it at any price.
Men plow and sail for it. From the
forest and wilderness come the
tonics and barks which brace
mankind. . . .
~ Henry David Thoreau
