we're not alone
“Nothing exists for itself alone, but only in relation to other forms of life.”
- Charles Darwin (1809-1882) English naturalist
There’s something about creeping through new mud to find a bird calling for a mate at twilight, hearing chorus frogs do the same from a nearby wetland, smelling fresh cedar, touching and tasting watery sap flow from a red maple that makes you feel completely alive and a part of the whole. It is all sublimely connected. One does not exist without the other. Yes, Mr. Darwin, we are not alone.
