Wild Places Journal
The following description appears on the inside cover of your journal.
Each of us at some time in our lives needs to behold a wild, unspoiled place large enough that our imaginations may wander and soar freely like a hawk just released from its tether.
Like gazing at the stars above, we need wild places vast and not yet fully understood so we may always wonder and feel humble before something greater than ourselves. Nature must always remain not fully known or tamed. There must be places vast enough in size that they will always be refuges not only for nature but also for those of us who long to know what lies beyond the next far hill.
