by Ginny Freeman

These poems reveal a different perspective on the world we experience through technology and politics. When turmoil and chaos rule, poetry offers deeper meaning and expands our view of interdependence by reflecting on the healing world of nature. These nature-based poems have an organic conversational style, enhanced by the aesthetic beauty and meditative value of elegant Japanese kanji throughout.

Reflecting the wise words of eco-ethicist Aldo Leopold—“thinking like a mountain,” thus understanding the interconnectedness of all beings—Ginny provides her own wisdom to the adventurer and seeker, the Earth lover and activist in these troubled times: “Live your life as if you were a tree…deeply, rooted. / Stand prophetic, wise. / Fed by living water all your years…”
—Anne D. (Andy) Burt, longtime community organizer, activist for environmental and social justice, andcreator of Down to Earth Storytelling.
