    Boy, what resonance! The transcendent, sober, clear illumination of what is! How amazing life is, what's happening is, when the drugged, veiled fog of "me" and my projections is absent. The nesting Laysan Albatrosses are AMAZING. They mate for life. The male can routinely fly 2000 miles for fish and brings it back to his nesting mate.

    I was a student of Snyder's at UC Davis and he got through to me and so many others! I was present during this reading and that statement, above, surprised me. His writing, his delivery, his intent….all delivered clearly. Helped formulate my writing, my art, and my thoughts about the environment, the "place in space," and humanity.

    @emberlivingood A real open expression of your love for the high and wild country that inhabits the soul of those who recognized the power of the great Sierra Nevada.

    Sorry, I found the insistent, frustrated baby an unfortunate distraction.

    As odd as this may seem, I believe he is the Gary Snyder who replaced my 6th grade English teacher for a while.

    Great and necessary poetry. Integrity, real love to the planet and a beautiful human being example. Excellent talkings. I would ask to Berkeley people to add please subtitles in spanish or portuguese. So we – the other iberoamerican cultures, can apreciate and understand better. Thank you all, hugs from Brasil.
    A better world is possible.
