As earthly beings we are born of the soil and return to the soil. It is only when one trusts the humility of the ground that new possibility will emerge.

Call of the Wild – Oil on Canvas – Omay Lee 2020
There is an ecstasy that marks the summit of life, and beyond which life cannot rise. And such is the paradox of living, this ecstasy comes when one is most alive, and it comes as a complete forgetfulness that one is alive ~ from Buck, in Call of the Wild

It is in wild untamed verdant green habitats when we might awaken to the primordial (or indigenous) sense of what makes us truly alive. How do we protect these wild spaces in order to simultaneously protect the life within ourselves?
