Recently, Joy received a Bookmans gift card. Bookmans is more than just a bookstore, it’s an entertainment exchange with a commitment to the people and communities they have served for over forty years. While there, I selected three books: Epitaph for a Desert Anarchist — The Life and Legacy of Edward Abbey by James Bishop; The River of Doubt by Candie Millard; Spanish Essentials for Dummies, the last two in preparation for my August trip to the Amazon in northern Bolivia. — kenne

I sometimes choose to think that man is a dream,
thought an illusion, and only rock is real. Rock and sun
. . . belief? What do I believe in? I believe in sun. In 
rock. In the dogma of the sun and the doctrine of the rock.
I believe in blood, fire, woman, rivers,  eagles, storms,
drums, flutes, banjos and broom-tailed horses.

Wilderness is not a luxury but a necessity of the human spirit,

and as vital to our lives as water and good bread.

“Wilderness. The word itself is music.

Wilderness. Wilderness… We scarcely know what we mean by the term,
though the sound of it draws all whose nerves and emotions have not been
irreparably stunned, deadened, numbed by the caterwauling of commerce,
the sweating scramble for profit and domination.”

— Edward Abbey

“. . . I now find the most marvelous things in
the everyday,
the ordinary,
the common,
the simple and tangible.
For example:
one cloud floating over one mountain.”
