Ecology is a love story. A play scripted between the sunlight’s tender dappling on the forest floor, the elegant drapery of the vines that climb a cliff-face, the tickle of the squirrels and birds holding society in the treetops, and the sultry sway of the purple kelp the otters cannot resist. The touch of life on life, met in the tension between unshaking trust and heartbreaking vulnerability is a kiss of light and love and heat, and earth. It is fierce and sweet, and rages with the same passion it births a wild rose.
