A Wilderness



 Forest
Only to the white man was nature a wilderness and only to him was the land 'infested' with 'wild' animals and 'savage' people. To us it was tame, Earth was bountiful and we were surrounded with the blessings of the Great Mystery.

- Black Elk, Oglala Lakota Sioux (1863-1950)

If it ain’t broke, don’t try to fix it…but we continue to try anyway…all in the name of progress or something like that. We put paint where we don’t need paint, we knock down mountains to build some more that we call improved. We show others ‘our way’ so they can improve on ‘their way’. Mind your own backyard and quit worrying about what’s going on next door.
