In Barry Lopez's Horizon, he reflects on his experiences in various parts of the planet. As part of that reflection, he is led to think about the question of where we are headed. I think this set of comments is worth sharing: "I returned to Australia a year later to dive on the Great Barrier Reef, to immerse myself in the mostly benign waters there, the blazing colors of the tropical fish, the transparency of the water, and the expanse of the coral reefs, in order to remind myself that no matter how steep the spiral of despair might become, beauty without design, without restraint, was all around."
I had a similar response in Yosemite—in a strange way I had the sense that all will be well, all manner of things will be well—whatever happens to our species.
