I wish I said that...

When we are mindful of every nuance of our natural world, we finally get the picture: that we are only given one dazzling moment of life here on Earth, and we must stand before that reality both humbled and elevated, subject to every law of our universe and grateful for our brief but intrinsic participation with it.

Elizabeth Gilbert (From her biography of naturalist Eustace Conway.)

I'm not for sure how to take Mr. Conway just yet.

I love his relentless way of living as basic as possible.
I wish we all lived like that. There would be no need for self-help books or psychiatry.

He is obviously a wise man. I love the way he speaks with thought.

However, I find it very hard to trust a man in dread-locks.
