I’m going through bins of notes and writing.  I’m back in 1990.  

I come across this from the book Arctic Dreams by Barry Lopez and think of the fires in my area right now, the smell, fear, and destruction in ash and smoke.  Can I see it like this?

Barry Lopez: “To the explorer, the land becomes large, alive like an animal; it humbles him in a way he cannot pronounce. It is not that the land is simply beautiful but that it is powerful. Its power derives from the tension between its obvious beauty and its capacity to take life. Its power flows into the mind from a realization of how darkness and light are bound together within it, and the feeling that this is the floor of creation.”
