Hi, folks. Great series we’re in. Thank you to all organizers and participants!
Having lived for decades with the nomadic and “spiritually homeless” sensibility some of us from the Sixties generation inherited, I have a somewhat different take on location, place, land, etc. Here’s an article I wrote on “place” for a Buddhist journal twenty years ago. It’s still pretty much my outlook today, though I have now happily returned to live in my “navel of the earth” (Cascadia–Vancouver to Bay Area, then down to Big Sur).
But note, I do reference positively Native perspectives on place and that of poet, essayist and deep ecologist, Gary Snyder. Views very much in the spirit of Caring for All Creation.
