Monday thought of the week: a way to make itself known

A thought:

While wilderness is valuable, nature isn’t limited to it. You can find nature in places dominated by people: weeds recolonizing disturbed ground on sidewalks, hawks nesting on bridges, trees rising from city streets, insects almost everywhere. Nature finds a way to make itself known, even when people have tried their best to suppress it. Finding and appreciating these organisms in even the most urban environments can help you remember that people are never alone–other species are trying to make their way as well.
