I am in love with the wild and the wonder it fills me with. The gift of our wild lives, and all the beings we share this awe-inspiring cosmos with, bring joy to my days and nights. May my contributions here help to serve this marvelousness. May kindred spirits find each other here and learn from each other. As Meister Eckhart wrote, "Every creature is full of God and a book about God," - however we each see 'God.'
