Exploring a Sense of Place
As an explorer of places where we live, I have become aware that we have oriented ourselves as a species ignoring our relationship with our fuller context - our ecosystem, which supports our living here. We did not come into this world. We came out of it, like buds out of branches and butterflies out of cocoons. We are a natural product of this Earth, and if we turn out to be intelligent beings, then it can only be because we are fruits of an intelligent Earth, which is nourished in turn by an intelligent system of energy.
