I have always felt emotional with respect to nature - its past, present, and future - and often feel out of place in this current stage of history, like I was meant to come into being in a pre-industrial society.

I am wary of the technological pressure bearing down on our collective consciousness, as it begins to sever our innate connections to the natural world.

"There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before." - Willa Cather
