Nature, Loathing, Love, Chaos and Election 2020: an essay

Karuna’s nature essay was published in the literary and environmental journal Cold Mountain Review. The Review was first published a few years before she was born. It was inspired by Gary Snyder, and his translation of the Taoist poet Han-Shan. Grateful to now be part of its fabric. The beautiful photos are Steve’s.

For anyone feeling angst in these unsettled times, we hope it will bring some peace — at least in the knowledge that you are not alone. Peace and laughter to you!
