"Not Just A Place..."

"Wilderness is not just a place.
It is also a state of being.
If happiness means being happy, and sadness means being sad,
then wilderness means being wilder.
Look it up for fun.
You'll find that the primary meaning of wild is 'natural'.
In turn, nature comes from the Latin word 'nasci', meaning to be born,,,".

"I Speak To Maps..."



"I speak to maps.
And sometimes they say something back to me.
This is not as strange as it sounds.
Nor is it an unheard of thing.
Before maps, the world was limitless.
It was maps that gave it shape...
Maps made places on the edges of imagination seem graspable and placable...".

"Follow It Anyway..."


"This trail is never changing.
It won't lead you astray.
It won't always be easy.
At times it will too narrow for your paws.
Follow it anyway.
And you'll overcome every challenge you face...".

But in what the stone,
tells you...".
