Today's Lakeville Journal piece (readable online with free registration):
"There is wonder in a blade of grass, a wilderness in our own backyard. I would love to see glaciers again, or to stare out over the Namibian escarpment where half a lifetime ago my tracks mingled with those of elephants in the sand of dry riverbeds. But for now these adventures are part of my past, recaptured in my mind's eye and informing that inner wilderness of the heart. I know that just as sure as growth and decay in the forest, with parent and child it all comes around again."
