The monsoon season has begun the second-hottest and second-driest on record in Arizona, where heat records
are frequently broken last year. The last two years have seen fewer desert downpours, an important source of
summer river flow.

“We’re dealing with a rapidly changing climate that is becoming, overall, more dry and varied and warmer,”
said Scott Wilbor, an ecologist in Tucson who studies desert river ecosystems, including the San Pedro.
“We are in uncharted territory.” Click here to learn about the importance of Sonoran Desert rivers.

And in understanding something, we bring something to it, no?
Doesn’t that make life a story?”

The most visible creators I know of are
those artists whose medium is life itself.
The ones who express the inexpressible —
without brush, hammer, clay, or guitar.
They neither paint nor sculpt — their
medium is being. Whatever their presence
touches has increased life. They see and
don’t have to draw. They are the artists of
being alive.

— J. Stone
