What inspires us to explore the world? Sometimes it is the area in which we live, the encouragement of those we love blended with a natural curiosity. The two pivital players in my life were and are my grandfather and father. Both wonderful naturalists in their own right. The world was our playground.

That legacy carries on in the like-minded community of those I write, kayak and fossil collect with. Amazing people who fill me with wonder as they take in the beauty, rugged strength and delicate balance of this imperfect yet utterly perfect world.
