Someday I hope to see movies, fashion lines and pop music inspired and about kids in the woods.
The genesis for this wish came one winter while taking a walk along the beach of Auke Recreation Area. It was snaining (a mix of rain and snow) and blowing about 10 miles per hour. A small boy, half buried in a pile of kelp and covered in seaweed, dirt and twigs, yelled at me.
“Isn’t this the most beautiful place?!”
I couldn’t help but feel I’d just met someone very wise, perhaps a little Southeast Buddha of sorts.
