Daily Nature 2009: On a Monument to the Pigeon

To love what was is a new thing under the sun, unknown to most people and to all pigeons. To see America as history, to conceive of destiny as a becoming, to smell a hickory tree through the still lapse of ages — all these things are possible for us, and to achieve them takes only the free sky, and the will to ply our wings.

~ Sketches Here and There, Aldo Leopold
