Abstract:

The author presents thoughts and meditations inspired by his day hikes, in which encounters with wild animals, rare plants, or simply the perfect moment of weather and view are opportunities to reflect on the sublime synchronicity of human and natural life. Touching on such themes as hunting, deep ecology, wicca, and sci-fi literature, Hopes' hikes and thoughts are part of a sifting of experience that unites the everyday world with a larger personal and eternal story.
