“My father, taught me to see. We’d peer carefully at a pinhead-sized flying insect, and he’d say, ‘A flying Miracle! This minuscule thing, eats, poops, breaths, sees, hears, has legs …6, did you count them? Did you catch the iridescence in its wings? Does it have two pairs or one? ... AND this tiny thing, CAN FLY! Unbelievable!’ Walking through our woods, he would point out this species and that, plants, animals, fungi, lichens, moss, 450 million year old brachiopod fossils and so on. A friend once said, ‘It’s like taking a walk with God, and him saying, 'Here, let me show you how this works.’ The depth and range of his knowledge was astonishing, most compelling however, was his enthusiasm, love, and appreciation for all things living. I say these things not as a eulogy to my father, but to describe how it is that the living world informs everything that I create. My father passed on to me a deep reverence for the natural world, and a joy in being witness to its glory tempered by serious concern for its well-being.”
