Before human cultures became overpopulated and almost entirely urban, many forms of writing interacted more with the earth and its physical and spiritual creatures, than with humans. Now that humans are the main show in town, those things are understood as originating from human perceptions, at least insofar as they are represented in writing. Try to remember that this is just a mirror of your urban environment. Humans are great adapters. They are also great predators. For a long time now, they have been predating their earth. You, the writer, are one of the few with power to change this story. It starts with getting out of town and seeing what you are being seen by. Aboriginal peoples the world over are recreating their traditional ways, one small step at a time. We are all aboriginal peoples. We are not writing for ourselves. We are writing for the earth, and all our ancestors, and all our descendants. If you are not doing that, what are you doing? Why?
