“Many of us in this time have lost the inner substance of our lives and have forgotten to give praise and remember the sacredness of all life. But in spite of the forgetting, there is still a part of us that is deep and intimate with the world. We remember it by feel. We experience it as a murmur in the night, a longing and restlessness we can’t name, a yearning that tugs at us. For it is only recently, in earth time, that the severing of the connections between people and land has taken place. Something in our human blood is still searching for it, still listening, still remembering. —Linda Hogan” 1 likes
