I plan to use this media to share favorite quotes from authors who inspire me, descriptions of trails I have or am hiking and anything that is currently on my radar regarding the arts and natural history. Please add your own comments.
“Every piece an artist creates is the product of what that artist has observed, considered, imagined, lived, and collected. It is both culmination and artifact. And for the true artist, every creation is one more step on a journey with no clear destination . . . a breadcrumb in a fairy tale, a cairn beside a mountain trail, a sign intended both to guide others and to mark where the explorer has been.”—Peter Turchi, Director, Piper Center for Creative Writing, Arizona State University
