Where to begin? - where it all began:

The earth beneath our feet, the sky above our heads,

and our intrinsic interdependence with the natural world

By straightening our backs and not shirking the challenge of our time, we may find our way back to living a dignified life, in which we restore our intimate connection with the Earth and, through doing so, become no longer afraid to defend it.

Walnuts and pears you plant for your heirs.

 

An old English saying we would do well to heed in our times.
