Quote of the week

“One of the interesting qualities of being human is, by the look of it, we’re the only part of creation that can actually refuse to be ourselves. As far as I can see, there’s no other part of the world that can do that. The cloud is the cloud; the mountain is the mountain; the tree is the tree; the hawk is the hawk...And one of the healing things about the natural world to human beings is that it’s just itself.”

—David Whyte
