can I get a witness?

Standard

‘speak the truth, and all things alive or brute are vouchers,

and the very roots of the grass underground there,

do seem to stir and move to bear you witness.’

-ralph waldo emerson

  1. So timely, Beth! Love it. We need more giraffes. BTW, I lived in Emerson’s Divinity Hall dorm room at Harvard Divinity School Fall Term of 1981 — an ant living in a giraffe’s atrium. Any way, I keep Emerson close by my side at the cabin next to the wetland.

  2. Had to read this three times and I’m still not sure I fully grasp it – but it is beautifully put in words and of course, Emerson is a Master! The photo itself is stunning…. and you put it beautifully in context!
