This Doesn’t Compare But….

This doesn’t compare to the
time of the Civil War and
how a great American poet
then however possibly given
that horrendous time could
affirm himself and the great
American dream of life on
the road in front of him, but
I want to say in my small way
that I stand with that poet and
understand that while we are
being asked to explore the im-
mediate, I am exploring life in
nature, which will long outlive
this moment and will tell us to
affirm ourselves and the univer-
sal dream of life off the beaten
path which is much like the
road the great American poet
took to the hopeful future.
