KCT Thought of the Week, October 7, 2016

“Those fleeting but sacred moments immersed in nature help us see our small lives in much larger context. They remind us—in poet Mary Oliver’s words—of our ‘place in the family of things.’ All of our work to protect significant lands and care for them is part of a continuum of giving and receiving that extends across generations and among species. We do this work because we recognize the need to sustain this reciprocity, to keep that greater whole thriving.” ~ Tim Glidden, President of Maine Coast Heritage Trust
