God of Dirt: A Meditation on Intimacy with Nature — Lane Williamson

By Guest Speaker

Published August 18, 2019.

As children we feasted on lying in the grass watching ants carry big loads, on the swing going higher and higher in anticipation of actually touching those clouds; we carried endless curiosity into exploring the way the frog zipped his tongue out – so fast – and caught the fly; and we passionately cared when the blue robin’s egg fell from the nest, or the baby squirrels lost their home because a tree was cut down.

What happened to us? We grew up – and away – from intimacy with nature. Our loss.
Retrieve some of that curiosity and passion of childhood; spend time exploring how you might recapture that intimacy.

Lane Williamson is a painter and a teacher.
