Our need for wilderness

I’m a little bit partial to nature and to my favorite buzzard of a gadfly….

(from my Pop’s)
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY . . .
“A man could be a lover and defender of the wilderness without ever in his lifetime leaving the boundaries of asphalt, powerlines, and right-angled surfaces. We need wilderness whether or not we ever set foot in it. We need a refuge even though we may never need to go there. I may never in my life get to Alaska . . . but I am grateful that it’s there. We need the possibility of escape as surely as we need hope; without it the life of the cities would drive all men into crime or drugs or psychoanalysis”.

― Edward Abbey, Desert Solitaire
