SEEKING OUR PLACE ON THE EARTH
and understanding the Wild Ones place as well.
When writing of our human experience of wildness and what is it in our human perspective, environmental historian William Cronon wrote in Incommon Ground….
“We are made to acknowledge that they [wild beings] are not of our making, that they have little or no need of our continued experience – they recall for us a creation far greater than our own. They have their own reasons for being, quite apart from us.”
And so …. each experience that we have with Coyote … is an experience of that wildness. When we come to truly understand what this wild being brings to us….just maybe we as humans will shift how we treat them.
