From the artist

"To him who in love of Nature holds communion with her visible forms, she speaks a various language." — Bryant
Touch Wood: that what has past shall not proceed; that prudence shall prevail over practice; that our legacy not be our litany; that balance will benefit all; that wealth will be measured in natural beauty preserved.
