I have been running the same trails for over 25 years. That’s a long time; and a lot has changed.
The babies I carried on my back while exploring those woods have grown-up; dogs that ran faithfully beside me have come and gone; my pace has slowed; and I breathe a little harder climbing up the steep slopes.
“We come and go, but the land is always here. And the people who love it and understand it are the people who own it -- for a little while."
Willa Cather, O Pioneers! page 60.
Thanks to you, the land that I love will stay protected forever. In this season of giving, I can’t think of a better gift.
Wishing you a happy Winter Solstice and a wonderful holiday season.
Amy Blaymore Paterson, Esq.
