Connecting People and Place
“Your true modern is separated from the land by many middlemen, and by innumerable physical gadgets… Perhaps the most serious obstacle impeding the evolution of a land ethic is the fact that our educational and economic system is headed away from, rather than toward, an intense consciousness of land.”
–Aldo Leopold, A Sand County Almanac, 1949
Like brush strokes on canvas, carefully crafted words can evoke image, emotion, and shared understanding. They can help readers pause, breathe deep, and tune in. Good interpretive writing and design spark discoveries that deepen the reader’s perceptions of the natural world.
I write to connect people with place, to cultivate what Aldo Leopold described as “an intense consciousness of land.”
