"AS A CHILD, ONE HAS THAT MAGICAL CAPACITY TO MOVE AMONG THE MANY ERAS OF THE EARTH; TO SEE THE LAND AS AN ANIMAL DOES; TO EXPERIENCE THE SKY FROM THE PERSPECTIVE OF A FLOWER OR A BEE; TO FEEL THE EARTH QUIVER AND BREATHE BENEATH US; TO KNOW A HUNDRED DIFFERENT SMELLS OF MUD AND LISTEN UNSELFCONSCIOUSLY TO THE SOUGHING OF THE TREES.” -VALERIE ANDREWS, A PASSION FOR THIS EARTH
