To live rooted on a changing earth is to create a new story. There are so few voices left that speak for wild nature first. It’s time to clasp hands (paws, fins, feathers, branches) and know where we stand. The ways of this story will not appear conventional within outworn cultural norms. Our new ways are disruptive. They will look weird. This is good. Let us not care, but enjoy that glimpse in another’s eyes that we will find sometimes – the one that says “You’re not crazy. I feel it, too.”
