An Earth Story

Being human
being natural
being planetary

We are children
of the Earth
this place, this time will
always and in all ways
love us, and provide for us

This story of generosity
informs our concepts
and practices
for the ways we hunt
and gather
for the ways we strive
and thrive
for the ways we dance
and share
for the ways we live 
and leave

Legacy signature Stephen Hobbs
