the world wakes up

           lago Chelenko dawn, Chilean Patagonia

Hello out there—


This February 2018 issue of  SageGreenJournal features Colorado poet Erin Robertson's meditation on the color blue. I particularly enjoyed laying out these pages far from the daily drama of American politics, here on the shores of Lago Chelenko in Chilean Patagonia, a lake that is often bluer than the sky—and wilderness skies are truly blue. Anyone who's paying attention knows that wilderness skies, like so much else, are threatened nowadays. We can't be confident that the world will be this beautiful forever. Unless we work a little harder to defend it.


Thanks for visiting. Stay in touch and be well—
