We can attempt to teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation and wildness.

What wonderfully cherful curtains! That list was truly inspiring. I'm wanting to copy your list & have it be true for me I noticed, except the part about losing a loved one. That's already true, of course, but I...no explanation needed I guess. What a great life you've had.
