The Near At Hand
People sometimes ask me why I love Tucson. Maybe this echoes part of the answer:
"One of the hardest lessons we have to learn in this life, and one that many persons never learn, is to see the divine, the celestial, the pure in the common, the near at hand--to see that heaven lies about us here in this world."
--John Burroughs (1837-1921) Naturalist
