We live in a fast-paced world full of creativity and innovation. For example, your cellphone can control your home security system, deposit a check, and remotely start your car. We have the ability to express ourselves and our opinions via facebook, twitter, and even blogs (get the joke there). But along with virtually connecting ourselves through our advances in technology we often overlook the creativity and innovation found right outside the window. We forget to ponder in awe over the river that carved a path through the mountains or the history a live oak has withstood. Have you admired the doe guiding her fawn quietly through an open field and contemplated how many winters she has survived? As Leopold expresses, we are the people who cannot live without wild things, and we challenge you to take notice.
“There are some who can live without wild things and some who cannot.” ― Aldo Leopold
