Bridal Veil fall
Gary Snyder: "it is the world that gives meaning to each of us. The multitudinous and various phenomena of the world sweeping over us every day teach us who we are . . . the beautiful world of nature is for this marvelous sensitive human creature we are, but also and equally for the sleepy baby bat hanging in the eaves or the hummingbird on a courtship dive. Whatever sense of ethical responsibility and concern that human beings can muster must be translated from a human-centered consciousness to a natural-systems-wide sense of value. First, simply because such a bighearted sense of the world seems right, but also to help avert the potential destruction of the very processes that sustain most life on earth."
