looking back is fine, when you`ve gotten far enough ahead of yourself and put plenty of distance between you. can`t believe that was our land, behind our house. our river. more the bobcat`s, coyote`s, bear`s, chickadee`s, shrew`s, cougar`s and wolve`s than ours perhaps. more the flowers, trees, rocks and moss. but a quick step out the backdoor of our cabin and acres upon acres to roam. these days i take comfort in the city trees, rivers and flowers. especially the trees.
