Daily #publicland VIDEO: Fellsway, Massachusetts. I woke up this morning feeling overwhelmed, anxious, and slightly depressed. I tried going to the gym. Then I realized it had been close to a month since I’d spent any meaningful time outdoors, so I went for a hike at the Fellsway. I now feel refreshed and energized. Some people want to decrease, degrade, and eliminate our public lands for a little bit of gas, oil, minerals, or timber. However, there’s not question in my mind I that the mental health of our nation would be much better if everyone could have readily accessible public lands to enjoy.

What we are today comes from our thoughts of yesterday, and our present thoughts build our life of tomorrow. Our life is the creation of our mind. -Buddha 📍Dumont Lake Campground, Rabbit Ears Pass, Steamboat Springs, Colorado #steamboatsprings #steamboatcolorado @steamboatresort #RIMBY @mountainstandard captured w/ @sonyalpha A7rii x Sony @zeisscameralenses 16-35mm F4 #buddha #meditation

On this episode renowned writer and naturalist talks about channeling our sacred rage in the battle to protect Americas great National Monuments from an onslaught by the Trump administration.

|| Terry Tempest Williams on Sacred Rage and the Battle For Public Lands /54 || . .
“We are at a crossroads. We can continue on the path we have been on, in this nation that privileges profit over people and land; or we can unite as citizens with a common cause--the health and wealth of the Earth that sustains us. If we cannot commit to this kind of fundamental shift, then democracy becomes another myth perpetuated by those in power.”- Terry Tempest Williams, Land of Hour . .
This conversation invites insight into renewed relational understanding of land, sacred rage, and protecting the breathing spaces of public lands. Terry Tempest Williams guides us to explore acts of the imagination into our shifts of consciousness and expanding our sense of family to both human and wild. For the identity of Americans, we are facing a welcome and necessary shift towards mindful reverence, active respect, and intentional renewal of our remaining open public spaces. .
