Our goal is to experience wildness every day. 

“To be whole. To be complete. Wildness reminds us what it means to be human, what we are connected to rather than what we are separate from.” —Terry Tempest Williams

What is wildness?

Wildness, in its literal sense, is the quality of being wild or untamed. Beyond this, it has been defined as a quality produced in nature, as that which emerges from a forest, and as a level of achievement in nature… A wilderness is a place where wildness occurs. (Wikipedia)

I am connecting to wildness every day.

For grounding.

For mental health.

For stress relief.

For gratitude.

For the feeling of freedom.

For appreciation.

For awe.

For myself.

For those close to me.

For wildlife.

For the land.

For the “preservation of the world.”

“We need the tonic of wildness…At the same time that we are earnest to explore and learn all things, we require that all things be mysterious and unexplorable, that land and sea be indefinitely wild, unsurveyed and unfathomed by us because unfathomable. We can never have enough of nature.”  Henry David Thoreau, Walden: Or, Life in the Woods

“Give me a wildness whose glance no civilization can endure”  Henry David Thoreau, Walking
