We are designed to be in reciprocal relationship with our wild surroundings. There are myriad other beings around us — the otter in her bank den, the yellow warbler perched in the alders, the sensitive fern clumped below — living their inter-related lives, all tuned in to each other and to the whole. We are the only ones who have stepped outside that circle. In order to return to reciprocity, we need to cultivate relationship with our non-human neighbors.
