Seeing the Landscapes

25 Jul

“It’s why those of us who write about landscape are so interested in science, too. It’s not in order to categorize the wildflowers, to make lists of things, but to make our vision…go deeper and deeper. The more I learn, the more I see. And the more I see, the more I learn.” –Gretel Ehrlich,  Words from the Land: Encounters with Natural History Writing. Trimble S, Ed. 1988.

5 Dec

From the desert I come to thee,
On a stallion shod with fire;
And the winds are left behind,
In the speed of my desire.

– Bayard Taylor
