Ecology and Nature

We are surrounded and embraced by her:
powerless to separate ourselves from her,
and powerless to penetrate beyond her.
Without asking, or warning,
she snatches us up into her circling dance,
and whirls us on until we are tired,
and drop from her arms."
-- Goethe (as quoted in Huxley, p. 372)
