  • I often wonder what John Muir's opinion on the world today would be. Would he have tears of joy or sadness, would he retreat to the mountains or would he be standing in resistance on behalf of the people and places seconds away from total diminish? On the brink of this American election, I have daydreamed many times of a person leading America with the same, vision, soul, and love for the natural world.

    You have to wonder do taxes, schools, businesses, healthcare, laws and any form of politic really matter in the eyes of mother nature?

    that's what i thought.
